    Would like to ask opinions on pregnant bitches having this - do you vaccinate them durin pregnancy? Does it protect the pups? The vets said 'dont bother' but would like you experienced views please :confused:

    We have used it for the past 5 - 6 years now with no ill effect got a bit of info on it somewhere although it is quite old now but may be worth a read - will look it out for you ;)

    Hi My Vet injects the Bitch 48hrs from mating and 2nd injection 2 weeks before due date A lot of people have good things to say about the CHV Vaccine, especially ones who have lost litters to fading puppy syndrome

    My Labrador bitch has now lost 4 of her 7 pups due to the virus :((. I wish I had pushed my vet on the matter as he told me not to bother to vaccinate. It's been heart wrenching watching them die. IF I were to breed again I would definately vaccinate...
