Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.
Which vaccines are you asking about? DHPP, Lepto, Lyme, Rabies?
That would be the DHPP which stands for Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo and Parainfluenza.
Please give me a minute to type up a response for you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
Every vet practices differently and might have different protocols for their patients, but I follow the vaccination guidelines as recommended by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).
Essentially, this means that after the puppy series, my patients are vaccinated every three years for these diseases but I don't worry too much if they're late in getting them as adults by a few months.
The reason being that there's evidence to show that vaccines are actually effective for many years which is why the recommended time interval was increased from one to three years as a recommended protocol by AAHA; therefore, I'd give her the vaccine with no hesitation and not restart the series.
I hope that this helps. Deb
