    Default 1 or 3 year rabies vaccine?? Plus other vaccine?'s

    Does anyone do the 3 yr vaccine for their bullies?

    Also, Stella is due 8/23 for all of her other vaccines, but there is a low cost wellness clinic in my area this weekend (6/29) giving vaccines at a much cheaper cost. Would It be ok to give the vaccines a little early or should I wait until the end of August?

    I don't see anything wrong with that, I prefer the vet clinic because all of the oogles and kisses Buster gets from the techs.

    Aslong as you can get the vet to update records and you do not get them a second time by mistake.... Should be fine

    Correct me if im wrong but I believe its mandatory for the dog to get 1 year at first then the next year they start getting the 3 year ? But if your dog can get the 3 year def go for that.

    More than likely your dog will be fine getting the shots early. Me personally, I wouldn't get them 2 months early maybe a couple weeks.

    The three year is ok to get, and I'm not sure about getting them early.

    I've just recently become concerned about over vaccination. My girls are 7 & 11 and they have been vaccinated every year. Last summer less than a month after getting the vaccines, my oldest bully ended up with a staph infection that turned into MRSP (caused by a compromised immune system). Simultaneously she developed an auto immune skin disease (one of the triggers...vaccines!). After a year of treatment and thousands of dollars she is still not completely well. Needless to say my vet wrote a letter exempting her from the state required rabies vaccine. She will never receive a vaccine again...not even rabies! My other bully got the 3yr rabies and that was it. If I had realized earlier that it was the same dose as the 1 yr, I would have done it a looong time ago. She will no longer get the other core vaccines either. I won't take the chance of compromising her immune system and after 7 years I'm certain she is protected.

    I was completely unaware of the risks until my girl became so ill last year. In the future I will do the puppy vaccines and maybe 1 year later but after that...only 3yr rabies for me.

    I have always done all the puppy shots the first year plus rabies then every year I have my dogs titer levels checked and they remain high enough that they don't require yearly shots. When te level drops down I will re vaccinate again and then go back to the same schedule.
