I had a shih tzu for 16 yrs and she was vaccinated every year exepct for her last year which was my decision.

My new shih tzu puppy should be coming home in about 6 weeks and I will be vaccinating her every year as I had my previous dog. This is my own personal decision. My other dog lived a long time and as far as I know, any of her health concerns were from age and not the vaccines.

I really haven't looked into any new research as to any concerns with the vaccines or how long they last now. I never had problems with them before so I look at it this way, if it ain't broke, then don't fix it.

As with anything, research and talk it over with your vet, then decide.

Good Luck
