    Default Does your Adult Bully get a distemper shot??

    I just called to get Vegas in to have his anal glands done and the receptionist told me it was time for his distemper shot. I was surprised since I thought this was a puppy shot. Vegas is 4.5 yrs old. Do you with adult Bully's still get this shot?? I have an apt. at 3 today and just wondering if it was another way to get $$ since he has not had this shot since he was a pup.

    Hi ,I got my Bully ,that shot and 5 months ,he was gone . After the shot if he is walking like he had a few drinks . I took him into the vet agian a week later ,and they said he had a tumor,but it was funny ,he was fine before he had the shot. If you get the shot make sure the dose has not expired .

    Yes Buster just had his. I saw a thing on distemper and it scared the heLL outta me. I know a bunch of people don't care for shots but imho it's a good thing.

    Yes...Dudley gets his! I had a friend who lost her dog to distemper...it was terrible.

    Yes, both Bulldozer and Blossom get this shot. They get it as a puppy, but they have to have booster shots to keep them up to date.

    Yes they have to have it every year. It's a distemper / parvovirus vaccine. When they get older some states do a 3 year but otherwise it's given once yearly with there yearly vaccines. I work at a vet clinic. Stay away from Lepto vaccine with bulldogs though.

    Yes - it is part of the life time shots.... they vary as to when you get them... 1, 2 or 3 yr shot.

    Leptospirosis is caused from rats. It's a rodent virus. Look it up. A lot of places give this vaccine but don't require it. It has a lot if side effects.
