2013 World Small Animal Veterinary Association VACCINATION GUIDELINES FOR NEW PUPPY OWNERS http://www.wsava.org/sites/default/file ... 202013.pdf

" 2. The WSAVA also states that the last puppy vaccine against the core diseases should be given at 14-16 weeks of age. This is because, before this time, the mother passes immunity to her puppies, and this ‘maternal immunity’ can prevent the vaccine from working.
3. A high percentage (98%) of core puppy vaccines given between 14-16 weeks of age will provide immunity against parvovirus, distemper and adenovirus for many years, and probably for the life of the animal .

While I agree with nearly all of this, it is nearly impossible to follow due to local licensing requirements via city or local municipality. Even if I handed them this flyer and said "sorry, it'll be every 3 yrs" They'll simply issue a warrant if the dog is out of compliance and in addition, fine me.

If we can begin convincing cities that titre tests are OK--and have a range of acceptable test results, only then can this become reality for most pet owners.

Yes, when it comes to the rabies vaccine, one does have to be aware of the laws/regulations of their state/municipality. But that is the only one required by law.

Many pups have contacted parvo before the age 14 to 16 weeks. Some before they are ready to go home.
