De­pend­ing on your ge­o­graphic lo­ca­tion and your dog’s life­style, your vet­eri­nar­ian may rec­om­mend vac­ci­na­tions against other dis­eases, in­clud­ing parain­fluenza, bor­de­tella, lep­tospiro­sis and Lyme dis­ease.

The 2011 AAHA guide­lines also note that im­mu­nity from the dis­tem­per and par­vovirus vac­cines lasts at least five years and im­mu­nity from the ade­n­ovirus vac­cine lasts at least seven years. This means that a healthy dog who had a strong im­mune re­sponse to the vac­cine might not re­quire re­vac­ci­na­tion within the rec­om­mended guide­lines. Con­sult with your vet­eri­nar­ian about the ben­e­fits of us­ing a titer test, a sim­ple blood test that mea­sures a dog’s an­ti­body lev­els, when de­ter­min­ing your dog’s im­mu­niza­tion sched­ule.

Also, keep in mind that th­ese are only the rec­om­mended core vac­cines. De­pend­ing on your ge­o­graphic lo­ca­tion and your dog’s life­style, your vet­eri­nar­ian may rec­om­mend other vac­ci­na­tions, in­clud­ing parain­fluenza, bor­de­tella, lep­tospiro­sis and Lyme dis­ease.
