Ava is now 11 weeks old and yesterday had her one and only vaccination, due to the problems associated with the Lepto4 vaccine, I have decided to never give the Lepto vaccination,  Yesterday Ava had the core vaccine only DHP and will not need another for a minimum of 3 years, my vet has marked her card accordingly.


The L4 vaccine has been causing major problems with the auto immune systems, so I will not be taking any chances with my dogs health.  Boosters should only be given every 3 years as per the guidelines of the manufactures Nobivac, so even if your vet sends you reminders saying you'll need to start the whole course again, please don't, this is NOT true, some dogs are covered for 7 years+ by their puppy jab.  The reason vets give 3 injections is because at 8 weeks, when the first is administered, they are still covered by mums immunity, which makes the first injection pointless, also Lepto only covers your dog for 2 month max, which means your dog would need 6 injections per year to be full covered.
