3rd parvo shot
my husband an i bought a german shepherd puppy about 3 weeks ago and she already had her first 2 doses of the parvo shot, she was supposed to get her last one this past wednesday but my husband took her to Houston with him and he works late, and the vet offices are closed.
Will anything happen to our puppy if her last shot is late?
As she's already had two doses of the Parvo vaccine (and presumably it was part of a combination vaccine that is normally used for puppy shots), she should have some degree of protection. But there are no guarantees I'm afraid, and it's best to keep her away from other dogs, or areas frequented by other dogs, until she's fully vaccinated.
Just make sure that she gets her third round of vaccinations as soon as possible, as if there is too long a break between them she may need more than just one more set.
If you get it taken care of right away, hopefully it will be all be just fine. I wish you the best of luck with your new puppy.
