I checked with the shelter today and he has only had one DPP2 vaccine. The two labels were due to one being the live virus and the second being what it was mixed with.
I am hoping that he does not need a second one? His system is so overloaded now. Since March 31 when he was surrendered he has had Frontline doused on him, dewormed, heartwormed, Rabies vaccine, DPP2 vaccine, anethesia, other meds from neuter surgery, crappy Hill's Prescription Diet (WITH CORN IN IT ARRRGGGGH). I sure would like to avoid giving him another vaccine now (or ever) considering the toxic load on his system and his skin condition.
I just heard back from the vet that checked him out while he was at the humane society. This is what he said:
Congratulations on adopting Lightning. He is such a sweet guy!
In my opinion he needs the following:
1. X-rays of his pelvis and hips. He has a problem in his left hip that is painful and which
really limits his range of motion.
2. Your vet will decide whether to start him on an anti-fungal. I would recommend an
impression smear +/- a fungal culture before starting such a drug.
Thank you and take care -"
