How many parvo vaccines did your dog receive? Were the parvo vaccines given 3-4 weeks apart?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
he had both vaccines a few weeks apart
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gabby, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Just two vaccines? Did your vet say that was all that was needed? Normally we do 3-4 depending on where you live.

I don't have his records in front of me but I believed he was all caught up. It could have been 3-4. I think he had everything.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gabby, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

Okay, If he had 3-4 parvo vaccines given 3-4 weeks apart his chance of getting parvo is very low and I would not be worried about it.

If he had two vaccines he could still get parvo but most likely it would not be as severe a case as if he had no shots at all. If he had two vaccines I would say a 50% chance he would get it.

There is a lot of parvo in the area where I live. So I have seen it in dogs that have had two vaccines but never in a dog who had 3-4 vaccines.

Yes, I will wait for your reply.

Were you able to check the vaccination record? Is he having any signs or symptoms?
