I was asking some vet friends about common misconceptions and old wives tales. We hear them all the time. This was one that came to the top of the list.
Some people are under the misconception (or they have been given the wrong information) that when they acquire their puppies or dogs they have already been given all the vaccines they need – for life.
This is NOT true.
You would not believe how many puppies I've seen over the years that became sick with some preventable disease. They received some vaccines but not everything that they needed.
Some people are concerned about over-vaccination. Is it possible to over-vaccinate? Yes it is. For those of you that want to know more, I have the perfect article for you. What Vaccines Does Your Dog REALLY Need?
This article will tell you.
I'm curious. Do you think that your veterinarian over-vaccinates your pet? Take our poll
. I'm interested in your comments.
