Read a lot of this...went numb about half way thru. Not sure what to make of some of it. I'm nervous about giving Hank his vaccinations. He's due for his lyme this month...and I don't know what to do. Lyme is SO bad in this area that I'd almost rather take the chance with the vaccine than take the chance with the disease. Any thoughts?

I haven't talked to my vet directly about it other than to mention in passing about the rabies vaccine and my concern but his staff is very much for it. I'll wait and see what he says. Makes me nervous tho.

Glad there is some information on canine vaccinations. Wish I had considered it sooner. Decker's vet visit was scheduled because he was due for some vaccinations. The potty accidents started the day after I scheduled the appointment. His vaccinations and diagnosis were the same day.

Back in Nov. 2008, when Rebecca was four, she was given the flu vaccination at the recommendation of her peditrician. In March 2009 she got the flu and ran high temps for a week straight. In early May 2009 she went for her five year shots. The next morning she woke up unable to walk. Crawled into our room crying. Took her to the peditricians (John carried her everywhere) and they sent us to Upstate Pediatric ER. It was a horrible day. They shot her up with morphine in hopes of getting her to move her leg for x-rays. Still could not get her to move her leg. Left with a diagnosis of 'transient synovitis' and a recommendation to follow up with an MRI to rule out anything else. Got home and gave her some Ibuprofen. She woke up the next morning able to walk - like nothing ever happened. Follow up MRI showed nothing of concern. Now every time she runs a fever she has joint pain. She no longer gets the flu vaccination. Peditrician swears the 'transient synovitis' was not related to the five year vaccinations. There is no doubt in my mind the two were related!

I think it is a good idea to have them titered. This will indicate whether they should have the booster or not.

I too, took Abby faithfully to the Vet each year for her annual shots/checkup. This year, I insisted onn the titer, and I am glad that I did, because she didn't need any shots.

Next year she will get the rabies shot, which lasts 3 years. Unfortunately, where I live it is a state law, and one that can not be titered.

my vet let me skip all vaccines for Jenny last year but then this year I found out it is against the law to cross state lines without a valid rabies vaccination.

(we cross state lines every time we go to see her diabetes/cushings vet - whoops)


Jenny got it and didn't have any ill effects.

I was to the point where I would not vaccinate Ali any more. We pulled titers and had the vet write a letter of exemption due to her "chronic endocrine disorder" for rabies.

We didn't board her anymore either so this worked for us. Now if your dog bites someone, there's nothing to stop the authorities from quarantining your dog but the letter works in most situations.

There have been some recent discussion about Vaccinations, and wanted to not only bump this up.... but to also share Dr. Becker/Dr. Dodd's point of view as well.

I follow Dr. Becker, and have the utmost respect for Dr. Dodd's..
