Jordan just got his known second set of shots last Tuesday. The lady who turned him to the shelter said he had a set of shots but they were unable to confirm with the vets office so as far as we KNOW he has only had the set of shots when he was neutered and then from last week. I've been discussing with my vet whether or not to get him an extra parvo for precaution or leave it with just one more set which would make 3 rounds.

Years ago it was suggested that certain breeds get an extra parvo shot for prevention and rotties were suggested to have five shots and I remember dobermans being on that list also. Now they are coming out with new information on how over-immunizing can be detrimental and even possibly cause cancer from what I understand.

What is the recommended vaccines now? Should I leave it be with the 3 known sets of shots and possibly 4 if he was immunized before being surrrendered to the shelter or go ahead and get an extra one scheduled after this next set?

Hum, I wish I'd have asked this last week. He did have his rabies last week with his combo vaccine and bordatella since the shelter did not give this when he was neutered. He has a small lump where he got his shots but it is starting to go down with no obvious discomfort or sensitivity in the area. It was the one year rabies.

The shelter did not do the distemper because they said they've noticed an inducive effect when given at the same time as neuter/spay. It was nice of them that they did give me a good discount on the adoption because he was behind on a lot of his puppy care.

He had his first set of shots from the shelter on the 20th at 14 weeks and then again on the 10th of this month from my vet. He's due again for his third known set on the 1st of May. So I should leave it at that until one year after his last set of shots then right? I really wish they could have found accurate records on him but without having them in hand I'd rather treat it as him never getting them.
