Regardless of the manufacturer of the vaccine, the protection provided is generally accepted as being equivalent. As long as the vaccines were stored and administered properly, the protection provided would be assumed to be adequate. However, if only these two vaccines were administered, additional vaccines may still be needed, to provide complete immunity. Vaccination is repeated every 3 weeks until 15-16 weeks of age in puppies.
