    I know i have seen this info somewhere but can't find it...
    What do you all generally recommend re vaccinations and when to have the first one, I was thinking 8 weeks and then 3 weeks later but I know that I have read contradicting information to this and just want to get it right. Your valued experience appreciated..

    It depends on the brand of the vaccine how far apart the vaccinaes are done. I had first one done at 7-8 weeks then either 2, 3 or 4 weeks depending on the manufacturers instructions. I never give the vaccines to a litter I have bred though unless they have to remain with me whilst new owners are on holiday or something. Risk of over vaccinating is too great and swapping brands can cause no end of problems
