• Hello! At miles first visit with Banfield on January 7th. I was told that we should wait one month for his next vaccination (making him 12 months). However, the vaccination that his breeder used prior to giving him to us says to give every 2-3 weeks and she has contacted us regarding receiving this vaccine at 10 weeks. She feels that this is necessary. I am concerned that we are waiting too long to give the vaccination and that miles is not protected from parvovirus. Should we bring him in for the vaccination sooner?

    Hi Emma,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local Banfield Hospital about this question. The vaccine schedule can depend on a few different things including your pet’s age, breed, size, and the risk of contracting certain diseases. It can also depend on the exact vaccine or product being used. Your vet know your pet’s medical history as well as the risk in your local area so they can give you the best advice on this.

Need more information or advice?

Contact your nearest Banfield Pet Hospital to schedule an appointment today.
