Dog Vaccine Discussion


Beckie Mossor is a superstar registered veterinary technician, who communicates to both her colleagues in the profession and to the public.  She discusses vaccines on the national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio program and agrees some may over-vaccinate. Ideally vaccination should match lifestyle of the pet and risk for exposure. Of course, there are core vaccines, needed for all dogs, like for rabies and some others.

Mossor discusses three lifestyle vaccines:

Leptospirosis (becoming increasingly necessary for all dogs), bordetella (canine infectious respiratory disease complex, needed for all social dogs); Lyme vaccine (needed increasingly where Lyme disease is endemic)
