while vaccination fees do vary according to body size but that's in term of frequency of vaccination, depends on the vaccine the vet gave lah, each visit is the same charge. According to my vet, small and medium breed dog require 3 jabs during puppyhood (2-3-4 months old) while large breed (2-3-4-5 months old), why is there a different? i also dunno, but heard is about antibody from mummy in the large breed last longer particularly for the parvo thingy so they need extra one more jab wow....sounds complicated to me!!!
Re: [Amanda85] Annual Vacination
[In reply to]
While for the annual or every 3 years vaccination wise, i prefer 3 years one, but i do take my boy boy to vet every year for checkup (and i supposed that maybe one of the reason the manufacturer suggest annual vaccination).
I did discuss with my vet about this issue before, and he told me because one of the vaccine (because the vaccine is in combination, 6-in-1, 7-in-1 even got 10-in-1) in the combination does not provide long lasting protection if compared with other 5 vaccines type (if u r givin 6-in-1 lah), so they have to be given annual loh instead of every 3 years
and that vaccine that doesnt last longer one, my vet said that the disease is usually transmit thru urine, from rat....lah dunno which is which and is not so well known in malaysia....but if u guys think that u have more than one dog and rats running around in ur house.....then annual vaccination should be done loh
