Lymes shot for Shiba puppy?
  • My Shiba just turned 11 weeks. My vet recommends the Lymes vaccine. I've been reading some negative things about it... not just from owners- but from other blogs or forums on dogs. It is not always real effective. Some articles I read say that prevention and checking your dog for ticks may be more healthy way to go. Opinions? I live in Pa.- deer ticks are here. But my dog stays in my enclosed yard in a suburb.

    I initially inoculated my boy but after reading up on the vaccine I decided against it. When I went back to the vet for his biannual checkup he asked me if I wanted to give him the booster. I explained my reservations and that seemed to satisfy my him.

    I wouldn't. Unless your puppy is out in the woods encountering a lot of wild animals, it will do more harm than good IMO.

    @Deeinbucks - We require all new members to post an introduction before gaining full access to the forum. This allows us to get to know you and for you to learn a little about the rules and etiquette of the forum.

    Since this is not an introduction and is a question that is answered elsewhere on the forum (there is an entire thread on vaccinations), I am going to close this thread. Please post a proper introduction and your account will be upgraded to member status and you will then be able to read through and post in the other threads.
