Definitely get your puppy vaccinated as well as all required shots. There's too many stray animals out there to not do this. People who have lost their homes have often just left their dogs behind and may have infectious diseases that your dog may get if s/he comes into contact with them. Rabies is not something to scoff at and be sure to put your dog on heartworm prevention, too.

Good luck with your new best friend!

have you seen the vid where the top doc at merck is saying that ALL vaccines are contaminated?
have you seen the video where Bill Gates is saying though use of vaccines alone they hope to reduce the worlds population by 15 percent?
do you recall how all the other sexualls in sanfran all got aids from a hep vaccine?

have you seen the data that shows polio disappeard with the cleaning up of the landscape and not due to the vaccines?

compare autism rates between un vaccinated population and non vaccinated poulations?

since those are all easily googleable, I would seriously wonder about ANYONE or where that says vaccines are safe...?

then there is the LAW re dogs MUST get certain shots....
dogs as we know them today split from wolves according to DNA analysis some 90 thousand years ago and have done quite well without vaccines till now

and WHY ARN"T ALL THESE FANCY DISEASES PRESENT IN THE AFORE MENTINOED STRAY DOG POPULATION.....hunh?

If you plan on taking your dog anywhere, ever, where other dogs play (dog parks) you should get your dog vaccinated. I'm not sure what the entire schedule is, but for the health of your canine companion I would definitely get parvo, rabies, lyme vaccinations.

The idea that all vaccines are contaminated holds some weight - but all my dogs ever (many) have been vaccinated and tend to live long, healthy lives.

I don't believe in getting vaccinations for diseases that the body can fight off. Rabies is a death sentence. As far as I'm aware, nothing has ever survived rabies.

When I was volunteering with wildlife rehab, my mentor worked with raccoons. She had to get a rabies shot once a year in order to keep her from getting the illness in the event she was scratched or bitten. It's no joke. Watch "Cujo".

Just got a new pup myself and have been doing some research as well as talking to my vet.
It depends on if the breeder has done any shots and if not they should be started or continued.
Here is some of what I found for you...
www.pet-dog-cat-supply-store.com...

6 WEEKS
Veterinarian Examination (for general health)
DHP-PV-CV (1st for distemper parvo/hepatitus/parainfluenza-parvo-carona)
Fecal Flotation (for parasites)
Heartworm Prevention
Flea & Tick Prevention

9 WEEKS
Examination
DHP-PV-CV (2nd)
Fecal Flotation
Heartworm Prevention
Flea & Tick Prevention

12 WEEKS
Examination
DHP-PV-CV (3rd)
Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
Fecal Flotation
Heartworm Prevention
Flea & Tick Prevention

15 WEEKS
Examination
Parvo Vaccine
Rabies - 1 Year
Heartworm Prevention
Flea & Tick Prevention

Also make sure to get the puppy de-wormed, as most of them get worms from the mother. I just had my 6 week old de-wormed and the vet suggested to start her shots in couple of weeks. Plus my dog is a small breed and is a house only dog, very inportant to have shots right away if pup is outside. So it is probably best to discuss your pups personal needs with the vet.. good luck!!

lets ask an expert shall we?

Vaccinosis, Health Hazard of Routine Vaccination
Most pet owners aren't aware of the dangers in animal vaccinations that have been discovered in recent years. The major veterinary associations now agree that vaccinations can trigger all sorts of maladies, from allergies to cancer - but most pet caretakers (and many veterinarians, it seems) haven't gotten the word. "With vaccines that are repeated year after year, the frequency and severity of these side-effects in our pets has increased dramatically. Most of the problems involve the immune system. After all, the immune system is what vaccines are designed to stimulate. But they do so in a very unnatural way that can overwhelm and confuse the immune system." Dr. Donna Starita Mehan DVM

I'd still have your dog vaccinated. I wouldn't worry about the chipping and other things that are rumoured to be in human vaccines. I believe that TPTB are not going to spend money to do this with animal vaccines since people readily and willingly are chipping their pets.

Still, be sure to get your puppy protected against anything s/he may contract.
I also can't say enough about how important heartworm prevention is.

If you don't care if your puppy lives a long and healthy life, then don't vaccinate.

If you had ever seen a dog sick with parvo you wouldn't be asking ATS whether or not you should vaccinate your dog. I agree that many vaccinations are unnecessary, but rabies, parvo, and lyme can and will kill. Protect your friend.

Ask yourself this question: If your puppy contracts parvo in 14 months and dies, how guilty will you feel knowing it's your fault for not vaccinating?

Bingo, baby!
Parvo is really nasty and not merciful whatsoever.

As of June 14, 2010 over 514 people have reported side effects from pet vaccinations!

earthclinic.com...
this is just one little website


I will always admire the vet at the hospital. She took the time to relay all the information about what they did to try to determine the cause. As we were getting ready to leave and take Rusty back to our hometown to a vet, different from the regular vet, to have him cremated, she pulled me aside and said.."if we ever get another Airedale, NEVER allow him to get a Lymes Disease vaccination". She has two dogs and never gives them that vaccination. She said there is entirely too much negative data concerning the results of annual Lymes vaccinations. She said the best way to handle this is to have an annual blood test to determine your dog's overall health. She said treating Lymes disease, if present, is easier than trying to save a life after repeated annual Lymes vaccinations. She gave me a hug and she cried with me. She was so genuine and caring. She then said, if you really want to know what happened to Rusty, have his kidneys removed for necropsy. I asked the vet, who would cremate him, to do so. The kidneys were sent out for testing and here are the....

Yeah, you don't want to take a chance with Parvo. My vet said a puppy can get it, just by being out in the yard if another dog with parvo had been there. Don't take a chance with that heartbreak.

[/quote If your dog contracts one of "these fancy diseases" Like rabies and bites you or another human your going to wish you thought a little different about this.
You will assure your animal is given a death sentence if it's found to be loose, distempered, possibly rabid and difinately unvaccinated. Either by someone like me with a rifle and concern for my pets and children or by local animal control. Either abide by the law and your public obligation or opt out of pet ownership.

Comply with the minimum required legal standards for your location. Nothing more.

Vaccines, human and animal, are something that is never going to be agreed upon.
I'd play it safe and just get them done. I've worked around domesticated and wild animals for most of my life. I've seen what contagious disease can do. Especially parvo and heartworms.
