Re: Puppy shot question

My pups get 3, 5 way shots between 6 and 12 weeks. I read a posting a few months ago from the American board of Vet (something like that). I believe it recommended 3 shots at 8, 12, and 16 weeks. Yes the new protocol is for 8, 12, and 16 weeks. I've been following this for about 5 yrs now. I give a...
