I know there are several different schools of thought these days on vaccination protocols but I am kind of old school and believe that puppies should receive vaccinations at least at 6, 9 and 12 weeks of age. Given that, here is my question, we are basically looking at a 3 week "window" between vaccinations with the 6, 9 and 12 week protocol. I am currently in a situation where a puppy is due a vaccination on Sunday and due to certain time constraints, I MAY not be able to do it that day. I am thinking of doing the vaccination on Thursday or Friday BUT I do not want to give it too soon (as in earlier than exactly 3 weeks). My Vet has told me in the past that a "few days" either way isn't going to make a difference and I do trust his advice but I wanted to throw this out there to see if anyone has ever had a puppy vaccinated more than 2 weeks but less than 3 weeks from the last vaccination. If so, did you notice any difference? Did you experience any problems?

I am pretty fanatical (it's actually probably an OCD thing) about doing the vaccinations on the date they are due and not a day earlier or a day later.

KEEP IN MIND, I do trust my Vet. I am just looking for comments on if you have done this and what did you notice.

Also, yes. I give my own shots. My Vet was recently involved in a serious accident and is in and out of the office. I don't have a problem asking him this question again but it is hard to catch him in these days. He is in therapy, etc. I would like feed back if possible.

Thank you!

Have you ever gone less than 3 weeks between vaccinations? Now I am not talking like 2 weeks here. I am thinking like a couple of days shy of the actual 3 week period between vaccinations.
