Pet Vaccinations 

This page is an in depth look into Pet Vaccinations, Pro's and Cons. 

I will show you our Vaccinations and Schedule for our Puppies and will be discussing the Vaccinations we use.
Also follow the links to see discussions on typical Pet Vaccinations.

Dr. Ronald Schultz is the number one Veterinarian on Pet Vaccination. In the videos below you will obtain knowledge of Vaccination vs Immunization.


We use NeoPar for our Puppies. NeoPar works much more efficient in younger Puppies, it also works faster than other Vaccinations. It's almost pointless to give some of the "Normal" Puppy Vaccinations until 12 weeks of age. You or I can not keep a Puppy 100% safe from Parvo until the Puppy would receive it's 12 weeks of age Vaccination, so therefore we feel we must start Vaccination at a young age for Parvo. NeoPar is the only Vaccination that I will give at the age we start Vaccinating for Parvo ( 6 weeks ) The Puppy is loosing it's Natural Immunity from it's Mother starting as early as 5 weeks of age and Parvo can even be walked into our Kennel by us, so I feel very strongly that I must start with the NeoPar at this age to counter the loss of Natural protection. Parvo is pretty much a deadly Virus in most cases that can be anywhere. We can keep the Puppies safe from other issues, but Parvo is impossible to fully keep the Puppies Protected from without Vaccination. If we could 100% Protect all the Puppies until 16 weeks of age, then we could start the Vaccination process to Immunize the Puppy. The Puppy leaves here at 10 to 12 weeks of age, then it's out of my Control what the Puppy is exposed to. The Neopar is the very most effective Vaccine for vaccinating against Parvo. 

We really hate to see our Puppies getting over Vaccinated at the new Home. We want you Informed and Knowledgeable on Vaccination vs Immunization and to be aware of what Vaccination...When.

 A Wealth of Information is on www.DogsNaturallyMagizine.com They have several articles from Dr. Ronald Schultz and his Studies. It can take some time reading through all the info, but it's well worth it. 

Here's our Vaccination Schedule 

6 Weeks of age NeoPar for Parvo  

8 weeks of age NeoVac DA2 for  Canine Distemper Adenovirus Type 2 

9 Weeks of age NeoPar for Parvo

12 Weeks of age Neopar for Parvo and NeoVac DA2  Canine Distemper Adenovirus Type 2

15 to 16 weeks of age Rabies

If you Vaccinate after this age, you should do a Titer Test to see if the Vaccine is necessary or not.  

These Vaccinations are all I personally recommend.  

I will only recommend the Core Vaccines 

Please watch all the videos below on Pet Vaccination. 


The NeoVac DA2 is from the same Company that makes the NeoPar and it also works well with the Preexisting Maternal Antibodies in the Puppy that cancels out your Normal Puppy Vaccinations when given at a young age (under 12 weeks)

We need you to keep the Puppy safe until the 12 week of age Vaccination, at that time the Puppy can pretty much Fully benefit from the Vaccination by your Veterinarian. It can take up to 2 weeks from the date of Vaccination before the Puppies Immune System is fully benefiting from the Vaccination, so Please keep your Puppy Home until 14 weeks of age then take it everywhere you can for socialization. 

We do Not give Annual Boosters...and Dr. Ronald Schultz doesn't either.  

Core vs Non-Core Vaccines

All of the vaccines given to dogs fit into 2 categories: core and non-core vaccines.

Core vaccines are the ones most vets recommend your dog should have as a puppy. These vaccines all protect against dangerous viral diseases. They are:

  • Rabies
  • Distemper
  • Parvovirus
  • Adenovirus (Canine Hepatitis)

The Non-Core vaccines include:

  • Bordetella
  • Lyme Disease
  • Leptospirosis 4-way (this is sometimes included in combination vaccines with core vaccines, but it is a non-core vaccine and should be considered separately)
  • Canine Influenza
  • Parainfluenza
  • Adenovirus Intranasal

Several of the non-core vaccines (Bordetella, Lyme and Leptospirosis) are bacterial vaccines. Bacterial vaccines have low efficacy rates coupled with high incidence of adverse reactions. This means they should rarely be used, and then, only after careful consideration of all the risks of vaccinating vs not vaccinating against these diseases.
