    You could ask your vet to do a tierer test to see if your pup is fully protected.

    Whether or not your vet "counts them" should not be up to them. It should be up to you. They cannot put a gun to your head and make you get a 4th set of shots. Is it harmful for the pup? Depends on the pup, really. I do my shots a week apart so it's less stressful for their system, and if the have a reaction (luckily never been the case) I will know which of the two caused it but I am overly cautious.

    We have rescued many dogs through our lifetime and never knew when their last set of shots were done, and the vet told us it would not hurt them, of course these were not babies.

    Our breeder did her own shots, when we went to get Pan she even gave us a vaccination record with all of the information on it. When we took Pan in to the vet, they just updated their records.
    If you canít adopt Ė foster.
    If you canít foster Ė sponsor.
    If you canít sponsor Ė volunteer.
    If you canít volunteer Ė donate.
    If you canít donate Ė educate, network, and crosspost.
    EVERYONE can do something large or small, to help save a life.

    Thanks everyone! After visiting and speaking with a few breeders I realized that most do their own vaccinations.
