I do get vaccinations for my 3 chi's but it makes me nervous. I have complained for yrs. that the 6 lb. chi's get the same amount as a great dane. Especially the rabies vaccine. I won't get both the Distemper/Parvo and rabies at the same time. I get them a month apart. So far my babies haven't had any problems with vaccines. The Leptospirosis is one vaccine I refuse, it is controversial whether it even prevents the disease and can affect the liver. I also will wait at least 3 yrs. between revaccinations. I had a yorkie that was allergic to flea bites. It was a nightmare, so I understand what you are going through.

I am terrified that I might have caused Laurel's atopy by overvaccinating her. I know better, but she was such a tiny and fragile puppy, we were living outside, and I was terrified of Parvo. I think I was also a bit confused about Animal Control not being the same thing as Child Protective Services at the time, because it was a big deal that I couldn't get her rabies vax in time to get her dog license the second she turned the age where we legally have to have dog licenses in my area.

Chocolate was already an "illegal dog" when she came home, so I got parvo/distemper first, waited the maximum time the vet recommended instead of the minimum, and got her rabies vax and dog license when I got them.

I went with Dr. Jean Dodds' recomendation to go ahead and got Laurel's three year DHPP on schedule. I hope to be able to get titers done the next time the vet sends me the card.

My understanding is that the laws about rabies vaccines are unscientific. My cat will get a single rabies vaccination sooner or later and a booster only if her titers show that she needs one.

My dogs are vulnerable little creatures who can legally be taken away from me and killed if I break laws. That's why I don't jaywalk or make failed attempts to snap capitalism at it's weakest link so I guess it's a good thing all in all even when it's nofe air.

Stop beating yourself up. You only did what you thought was right. You just have to make the decisions you think are best and then go with it. I've done a lot of things I regret later, but you just have to move on and do the best you can. Take care.
