Note: The following vaccine protocol is offered for those dogs where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable.  The schedule is one I recommend and should not be 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 Pups

Vaccine Type

9 - 10 weeks

Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Merial Nobivac [Intervet Progard] Puppy DPV)

14 weeks Same as above
16 -18 weeks (optional) Same as above (optional)
20 weeks or older, if allowable by law Rabies
1 year Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV
1 year Rabies, killed 3-year product (give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)

 

Perform vaccine antibody titers for distemper and parvovirus 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 request.  See www rabieschallengefund.org
