I got all Chloe's vaccines done when I got her, 3 1/2 years ago, including lepto booster.

Now she will get only rabies vax every 3 years, as dictated by law.

Thanks Ladies and Gents for your response it looks like my vet has sucking the cash out of me for unnecessary shots.

Good to hear from you again Luba

I get the distemper cocktail every 2 years and rabies every 3. They get Lepto every year and don't get any others at all. :)

Hi Jeff :thumbs up

And Prin did you know the lepto vaccine doesn't cover all strains of the lepto virus and the strains it does cover are often NOT the virus your dog can get sick with.

Just a little hint hint
