07 Aug The Importance of Distemper Vaccine
Most of us have heard of distemper infection for dogs and gather it is bad. The basic vaccine for dogs is “the distemper shot,” which vaccinates against distemper, parvovirus and some minor kennel cough agents. Luckily, this is all most people ever hear of distemper. If you are reading this, however, you probably have a dog that is suspected of having this dreaded infection.
The typical distemper suspect is a rescue or pet store dog or puppy, usually with questionable vaccination history or an as yet incomplete vaccination series. The dog or puppy has been housed with other rescue dogs.
