Lepto 2 Vaccine vs Lepto 4 Vaccine

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have tried researching to the best of my degree but recently I attended an appointment at my local vets for Max's Booster. The vet I saw said they had updated their vaccinations and that Max would have to come back in four weeks.

 

Max has always been given lepto 2 vaccine but now they have informed me starting from next year they will only be stocking the lepto 4 vaccine.

Max is due to go back in 10 days for the remainder of the injection. I am getting a puppy and bringing it home in may. The owner of the mother said not to give the lepto 4 vaccine as the has been a number of fatalities, but normally Andale vets have always been great.

 

Did not help at the top of this page that showed all the dogs who have had a fatal reaction had a picture of a collie who had passed soon after receiving the lepto 4 vaccine.

 

I just need help and advise. Thanks in advance :rolleyes:

What is the risk in your area? I gave the 4 way vaccine this year because lepto has been fairly prevalent here lately (many clinics have seen dogs with it and some have died) and my dogs spend lots of time in high risk environments

As I understand it, the newer version of the Lepto vaccine has a lower incidence of side effects than the older vaccines. I have been giving it for a few years to even my littles and never had an issue.

I have been giving the four-way to my dogs annually for years now.
