Vaccines are a complicated topic, let’s start with that. It’s impossible to break down the conversation into something so simplistic as “Vaccines: yes or no”. Some are more effective than others, some prevent more severe diseases than others. There are some vaccines I did not recommend (hello, FIP) and others I was adamant about (parvo!) when I was in general practice. This is why you should have a good relationship with a vet you trust, who is willing to have a dialogue.
On the other hand, when people are wading into the quagmire of what to vaccinate for and when to boost it versus titer it, one thing stands: ALL puppies should have ALL the core vaccines: parvo, distemper, adenovirus-2, and rabies. What you do after the one year booster is between you and your vet, but basic risk/benefit is indisputably on the side of vaccinating young dogs for the above vaccines on schedule.
I think sometimes people forget how awful some of these vaccine preventable illnesses are. If you’ve ever seen a puppy dying of parvo, you would never miss that vaccine for your pet again.
Thank you so much for posting this inspiring space! I am in the process of building kennels in a barn space on our 18 acre property for rescue. Boy and I excited and terrified at the same time! We are purchasing our barn from barn pros – are your kennels the lucky dog kennels that can be purchased off of amazon? What size are they? We originally intended to create the kennels similar to a horse stall but your thoughts on an open concept kennel are making me rethink our plan. I am concerned about noise pollution due to barking but I can also see how dogs would find comfort in the visual interaction that comes with open space. So many questions, sorry! You are incredible, thank you for all that you do. Leah Klein BAD RAP Blog
