    Hi everyone,

    We picked our new puppy up a week ago and the breeder informed us that her vet had used an ‘unusual’ vaccine for her 8 week jabs, called Versican.

    Unfortunately our usual vet doesn’t use this vaccine, and can’t order an individual dose in. We have tried so many different vets but they all use Nobivac.

    One vet said they use Eurican and that it’s compatible, but we checked this with our usual vet and they said it’s not.

    Does anyone know of a vet in or near to Plymouth that offers the Versican vaccine, please?

    If we can’t find one, then she’ll need to restart her vaccinations again and that will need to be done next week (at 10 weeks). But we’d rather not delay her going out if we can help it (my husband works long hours sic days a week, and I am disabled and have bad joints so carrying her is difficult). We have been taking her out when my husband is able to carry her but obviously she is growing and we don’t want to miss any socialisation opportunities.

    We live two hours away from the breeder’s vet and our pup isn’t enjoying the car too much, so keen to avoid four hours of travel if possible.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks so much for reading!

    Can the breeder’s vet send a dose of Versican to your vet?

    The reason why a lot of people prefer to buy an unvaccinated pup. If you restart I would assume that the two vaccines have given enough cover and go out in quiet areas before the second one. It is only that they have not tested them so they are not licensed to work together - but look at the way everything has been altered to suit with the covid vaccines - though of course that could be why they dont seem to give very great cover.
