Default Lepto??

I was told that you weren't supposed to give Chihuahuas' the vaccine with Leptospirosus. Is this true? I'm getting ready to give Whiskey his 3rd shot(we give all our own shots for all our animals), he's had two combos. We ususally give our other dogs Lepto with the third shot, but I just wasn't sure about Chis' , since he's my first. Any help is appreciated. Thanx

D.B

my vet doesnt like to give the lepto to toy breeds, she says the risk of reaction is too high compared to the risk of catching it...and that its just not worth that risk

I didn't give Beau the Lepto vaccine, for the reason Foxywench mentioned.

Okay, well how many shots did you give them? This will be his third. I did 4 on our other dogs just to be on the safe side, so I was sure they got the full immunity, but like I said before, I'm new to Chis'.
