Default NEED HELP!!! Please!!

Hello YT,

I am a newbie to owning my own dog let alone a yorkie.. When I bought my lovely Mia back in the beginning of Feb. her breeder assured me she was up to date on vaccinations and that all she needed was Bordetella. Well I made sure to get her vaccinated with the Humane Society and gave them all the records I had when I got her. 2 Months ago I tried to board her while trying to go out of town for one day. They told me she was not up to date on all her shots and that Depo?? was expired??? I have no idea what that means. On her papers it says she received D-A2-P-CPV.. She is turning 9 months soon and Im so confused at my next step.

What shots does she need next?

Please help!!!

Signed,
Mia's Mommy

It sure is hard to keep track of all the abbreviations for things! The only two things I could come up with were depo provera (birth control) and depo medrol for allergies. Neither makes sense to me!

She should of had 3 sets of shots initially. You really need to take all your records to the vet and let them take over. She also should of had her rabies by now.

I know! They are familiar shots in Family Medicine but I doubt they would be much help to a puppy!

I don't know what shots the dog needs but you probably should take her to the vet to make sure everything is OK. If the humane society was using a tech to do the shots they may not have been familiar with what was written on the card.

Actually, the site I visited did say they could be used on animals, so that is why I mentioned them. I did visit another site that gave this information.
The DA2LPP (6 in 1) vaccine protects our cats from the following six diseases:

Distemper - A widespread, and often fatal disease, which can cause diarrhea, fever, pneumonia, seizures, and a discharge from the eyes and nose.
Infectious Canine Hepatitis – A virus that affects the dogs liver. It spreads through an infected dog's urine or other secretions and exposure can mean anything from a mild infection to severe kidney damage or death.
Adnovirus type 2 & Parainfluenza - Viruses that cause canine cough or tracheobronchitis, an upper respiratory infection that causes a persistent, dry, hacking cough.
Leptospirosis - A bacterial infection which often leads to permanent kidney damage. It is very contagious to other dogs and to humans. It is spread through contact with nasal secretions, urine or saliva of infected animals.
Parvovirus - A widespread, highly contagious life threatening virus. Symptoms may include fever, depression, and loss of appetite, severe gastrointestinal distress, dehydration, shock & possibly death. Transmission occurs through direct or indirect contact with infected feces. The virus is particularly resistant and can persist within the environment for many months
There are also vaccinations that protect our dogs from the following diseases:

Coronavirus – A highly contagious viral infection of the gastrointestinal tract which causes vomiting and diarrhea.
Bordetella – A bacteria that infects the upper respiratory tract causing canine cough or tracheobronchitis. Can lead to pneumonia. Symptoms include a persistent, dry, hacking cough.
Rabies - A fatal infection of the central nervous system that can affect all mammals, including man. The virus is transmitted from animal to animal and animal to man primarily through the bite of an infected animal. Routine vaccination is the key to controlling this dreaded disease.
Lyme Disease - A complex illness that affects wild and domestic animals, as well as humans. Caused by a bacterium carried by the Western Black Legged Tick and the Deer Tick. Symptoms include fever, arthritis, severe pain and lameness.
Giardia - A parasite that lives in cold, wet environments and is transmitted through water sources contaminated with animal feces. Giardia causes diarrhea and weight loss. Young animals and animals with compromised immune systems are at the highest risk. Dogs that drink from streams, rivers or puddles that have been contaminated with feces of other animals (hunting dogs, farm dogs, camping), and dogs kenneled in high density kennels (shelters, breeding kennels, shows) are also at high risk.

and this:
Special Notes for Dog Owners

Due to the number of allergic reactions to Leptospirosis during the puppy series we do not recommend getting the Leptospirosis vaccine until 12 weeks of age, and don't recommend the Leptospirosis vaccine for Miniature Pinchers, Dachshunds or dogs who have had previous allergic responses to vaccines or bee stings.
If your dog goes to a grooming establishment, boarding facility, dog show or socializes with other dogs the Bordetella vaccine should be given every 6 months.
If you have to board your dog at a boarding facility and he/she has not been vaccinated for bordetella within the last 6 months, you should vaccinate your pet for Bordetella before boarding. It takes 10 days for an injectable Bordetella vaccine to provide protection, and 3 days for an intranasal Bordetella vaccine to provide protection.
If your dog goes to dog beaches, parks, or socializes with other dogs or if your pet is a Doberman Pincher or Rottweiler:
An additional dose of Parvo vaccine should be added to the puppy series (given 4 weeks after the last dose of DA2LPP in the series) and
The Parvo vaccine should be given every 6 months, once as part of the DA2LPP (Distemper/Parvo combination vaccine) and once as an individual vaccination.
The number of cases of Heartworm has been steadily rising in Southern California – We strongly recommend that all dogs are protected from this disease.

I am not sure what the costs are for you on the East Coast, but here on the Northwest Coast, I just paid $41 for those shots (distemper/hepatitis, parvo, parainfluenza and rabies), minus the fecal check. He did have a physical exam, but no fecal check was warranted.

No sounds about right. First checkup is usually the highest.

No that sounds very reasonable. After that she will have annual vaccines and the cost will go down.

Nope.

The shots are like 40+ fecals 10+ and exam 60+...it sounds like a good deal.

I would ask them for an itemized bill so you know exactly what they are charging you for. That is high for just the shots and fecal test. I am guessing that they are charging you quite a bit for that exam. Most offices have a standard charge for an office visit and everything else done after you are in the door is added to that base charge. You can ask what the basic visit charge is and call around and compare prices. There can be a wide variety of pricing in any area. Some places with new buildings and equipment are usually charging more to recoup their investment. The shots themselves are not expensive but each place will mark up the price according to what they need to make to pay the bills.

There is a sticky in the Diet and Health Forum about vaccine protocol. Here is a link to that page.

Also, I would not give the rabies at the same time as the other vaccinations. Spread it out by a few weeks, if possible.
