    just seen our vet has had to close (all vets i assume) but shes only had 1st vaccine. What now?? What happens if a pup goes out with only 1st vaccine done?

    Have you phoned your vet?

    Most are operating for emergencies only, but should still be staffed during work hours for advice etc.

    Yes and they said all vaccinations have been cancelled but to call back in a couple of weeks when its due and see whats happening then. I dont think things will br back to normal by then though

    Technically (and certainly the drug company will state) your pup wont be covered.

    Theres not really much you can do tbh. You can still carry your pup out and about to socialise (they dont need contact with people or other dogs - just exposure) and then get the full course as and when.

    My first dog was constantly ill as a puppy and didnt have any vaccines until he was well over 6 months. He was fine, as generally speaking, the vast majority of people vaccinate so you get herd immunity.

    Unless you live in a particularly impoverished area, i would try not to stress too much.

    Im pretty sure 99.9% of dog owners rpund here vaccinate so the risks are low but will see what 2 weeks brings

    Got exactly the same problem... had intricate plans to take my border collie pup out 3 times a day but cannot do that now and I'm anxious the boredom and lack of release, and limited socialisation is all going to affect his development
