What is the best vaccine to use on new puppies. I am a breeder, and raise small toy poodles in Central California. I am to the number of pups, that I wish to get the vaccines and do it myself. I want to insure my puppies are getting the best vaccine I can use. Should I use five way, or seven? My prior vet has used both. Usually five for the first three shots, then the seven way plus rabies on the fourth. Which brand is best? Duramune or Univac? Or is there another? Should I use live or killed virus.
I recommend you use the same vaccine that your vet uses b/c your vet knows the specific diseases in the area that he/she wants to protect the animals against. The brands are the same in my opinion and I do not find one brand to be much better then any other. A rabies vaccine is killed most others are modified live. vetcare
