"Pushing the Shots" at 4:31. Remember as you watch that the American Animal Hospital Association Canine Vaccine Guidelines referenced in this news article show distemper, parvo & hepatitis vaccines have a proven MINIMUM duration of immunity of 7 years by challenge and up to 15 years serologically.

The 2003 American Animal Hospital Association Canine Vaccine Guidelines http://www.leerburg.com/special_report.htm state on Page 18 that: “We now know that booster injections are of no value in dogs already immune, and immunity from distemper infection and vaccination lasts for a minimum of 7 years based on challenge studies and up to 15 years (a lifetime) based on antibody titer.” They further state that hepatitis and parvovirus vaccines have been proven to protect for a minimum of 7 years by challenge and up to 9 and 10 years based on antibody count.

Canine parvo type 2, distemper, adeno type 1 and parainfluenza: "These results suggest that the duration of serological response induced by modified-live vaccines against CPV-2, CDV, CAV-1 and CPiV...vaccines, is beyond 18 months and may extend up to 9 years. Accordingly, these vaccines may be considered for use in extended revaccination interval protocols as recommended by current canine vaccine guidelines." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23186088

Bingo!!! Problem is, most folks today seem to be indoctrinated to a very narrow way of thinking. It is going to take a lot of this type of posting and info to get people to un-indoctrinate them.
Ignorance can be fixed but stupid is forever.

Here is 20/20s source - someone who makes his living selling owners supplements of his own design. He couldn't earn his paycheck if he didn't make other vets look bad. Now who's in it for the money?

Most vets don't do annual vaccinations. And the dog who had "just a tiny bit of tartar" also had a fractured tooth and an oral mass clearly visible during the show. Any vet that did not recommend dental care was not practicing standard of care. Thanks for telling the whole story 20/20.

Pet owners definitely need to educate themselves so they can make informed vaccinal decisions for their animals.
