2010 Canine Vaccination Protocol by W. Jean Dodds, DVM

June 12, 2012

MINIMAL VACCINE USE

Note: The following vaccine protocol is offered for those cats where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable. The schedule is one I recommend and should not interpreted to mean that other protocols recommended by a veterinarian would be less satisfactory. It’s a matter of professional judgment and choice.

 

 Age of Puppy

Vaccine Type

 

9 – 10 weeks

 

14 weeks

 

16 -18 weeks (optional)

 

20 weeks or older, if allowable by law

 

1 year

 

1 year

 

 

 

 

Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Intervet        

                                     Progard Puppy DPV)

Same as above

 

Same as above (optional)

 

Rabies

 

Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV

 

Rabies, killed 3-year product (give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)

 

Perform vaccine antibody titers for panleukopenia virus every three years thereafter, or more often, if desired. Vaccinate for rabies virus according to the law, except where circumstances indicate that a written waiver needs to be obtained from the primary care veterinarian. In that case, a rabies antibody titer can also be performed to accompany the waiver form.
