Could someone explain to me the various shots that I could give my dog when he goes for his booster?

I was explained by the vet before but would like a reminder - this way when i book his appointment for october, I'll know (remember) what i'm talking about..

What do you all ask the vet to give your dog and why exacly... what's suggested for winter time canine flu and all other things that dogs can catch in the winter?

Sorry for the many questions - just looking to educate myself. :)

Thanks

I would love it if people would post their opinions and experiences in regards to vaccines. TIA.

I'm not sure if there is a vaccine for the flu for doggies yet... Anybody know for sure?

Sadie's mom, I don't know if you should start a new one on that. It can be a hot topic...

I don't know what I would do if my dogs caught something that I could have prevented. There is a small risk when vaccinating pets but I think the risk of them contracting some disease/virus is much higher.
