So, for Midget I had decided to wait until he was about a year old to get his shots. After reading about vaccine reactions, I decided to wait until Midget was older to start his vaccine schedule. We're doing limited vaccines, DHPP & Rabies only. So my question is that as a puppy, dogs will recieve DHPP 3 times before they are "fully vaccinated." I brought Midget in at 1 year, as far as I know he has never recieved any kind of vaccine. He was given DHPP and the "expiration date" on my cert is 1 year out. So here's what I want to know, should I bring him back and have the DHPP done again because he never got the "booster" which dogs need? or should I not even bother because "boosters" are really just a way for vets to rape your wallet. I'm afraid to call the vet because I know they will tell me to bring him in and not give me the true answer... As was proved when I asked a local vet if there were any risks associated with neutering and he told me the ONLY risk was the risk involved with anastesia... and we all know that just isn't true.
