Does this topic never end …. I hear myself asking.
The new canine vaccination protocol recommending 3-year vs. every year intervals for core vaccines is now two years old. Within those new guidelines, the American Animal Hospital Association admits that immunity lasts at least 5 years for distemper and parvo, and 7 years for adenovirus. So in fact, even the new 3-year protocol is heavy-handed.

I’ve just upgraded my pet insurance and so I’ll be speaking with them and my vet to discuss annual vaccinations.
Interesting that this topic seems to be highlighted on a more than regular basis!
