You can have the vaccine done at any time. We commonly give all of the necessary vaccines concurrently. Very small dogs are the exception as they appear to suffer from more adverse vaccine reactions than larger dogs. Which breed is Cesare, please?

border collie

Thank you. His breed isn't one that is associated with more hypersensitivity reactions to vaccines. I would have him vaccinated at your earliest convenience. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
