    I have recently adopted a puppy who has had his 1st lot of injections. I contacted my Vets who don't do the brand he has had so therefore has to start again. I am wondering if this might be too much and to find somewhere else that does stock it

    Its not something I would do or recommend. :(

    I am quite extreme in my vax views but if you do want your dog vax'd, I would wait 6 months and then start again anew. I just dont think mixing brands up is a good thing unless its the same vax in the same quantities - you can look them up on the web if you have the manufacturers name and the name of the vax.

    Its really only something you can decide, I could put loads of stuff on here about vax's, but think its best you research yourself, if you want to.;)

    Could you not just ring around different vets, to find one who does do the vax in question? I know it won't be your vet, and might be out of the way, but for a one off trip to finish the injections it's not so bad.

    :confused: Hmm yes, I have found searching Eurican that it should not be mixed :confused: Seems none of the local vets stock it they only do Nobivac and Duramune :eek:

    Can you not go to the vets where the first injection was given?
