Sorry to hear about your pup, but don't worry too much about the shots, they are highly over used and aside from maybe rabies being mandatory the rest are not. Most dogs have full immunity if they had shots as puppies. Anyhow, that's not the issue here. A new vet with a second opinion is definitely in the works here (don't let them sell you shots though). I would ask the current vet for a copy of the tests you had done if you don't already have them, so you don't have to get them done again. Sorry I have no answers for you though. No shots should be given to a dog who is sick anyhow, but if you don't want to do shots you can always titer test the dog (at a later time) to see if the immunities are in place.
