Administering Vaccines – Canine


Hi, I’m Megan and today we’re here with Becky, who is a CVT and VTS in clinical practice and we’re visiting Rose City Veterinary Hospital, and today Becky is going to talk about vaccinating this puppy. So this is Hilo, and he belongs to one of our receptionist here, and he’s in the middle of his puppy series. So he is due for his third DAP. His distemper Parvo Adenovirus vaccine and his bordetella. So those are two that we will give together and then he’ll come back in three weeks and he’ll get his rabies so we can break all of those up. So for vaccines, the distemper vaccine is going to go in the right shoulder. The bordetella vaccine goes in the left shoulder, so on the opposite side, and then if we were vaccinating for rabies, it would be the right rear. And then lepto goes in the left rear. So, four different spots for four different vaccines, so we’re not putting them all together. So, for him I’m going to draw up his bordetella and his distemper parvo and we give the bordetella last because the injectable one can sting so, it’s not it’s not uncommon for them to cry a little bit, or even start scratching at that area, because it stains a little bit. So, what we’ll do first is we’ll draw up the DAP vaccine. Because this is freeze-dried, we have to mix it up, and you only use the diluent that comes with it from the manufacturer. So, draw up all of the diluent, which it’s about 1 ml, and then inject that right into the other vile, and then just mixing this up, because, you want all of this to be dissolved before you draw it back up into your syringe, so there’s no clumps in there. And then, for this, you’re just drawing this right back up. And then we do always change the needle. And he’s such a little guy that we’re going to go with the 25 gauge needle, and then I’m going to go ahead and draw up the bordetella as well, so that we have both them ready, and because these little labels peel right off, if we’re giving more than one vaccine, we’ll just peel it off and put it right on there so we remember which one is which. And then the bordetella, the injectable one, does not have to be mixed, whereas the intranasal one does so again, same thing, we are just going to draw this right up and then change the needle again. And then I’m going to put the label back on the syringe, just because we have this temperature still, so that nothing gets confused. And then because he’s current on his his exam, all he needs is just a tech appointment with a vaccine so we’re just going to take his temperature make sure he doesn’t have any kind of fever. So we’ll see if Megan can restrain this baby, and then, I’m sorry oh my goodness you’re such a good boy so temp, is 101.6 so we are done with that, and then with the puppies, what we try to do is give them a food distraction or treat distraction, because every time they come in here has a puppy they’re getting poked, and so we’re trying not to make them associate us with bad things that happen. So, what he gets is, he’s going to get a little bit of kong paste on a little tongue depressor, and hopefully that will distract him long enough. So what we’ll start with is the DAP. Hi buddy, you want to focus on that? And we’re going to go on this side, just a little bit lower than his shoulder, and hopefully he won’t jump. Good job, and then we’re drawing back, and injecting, and this is not the one that stings. Good job. And that is it for that one. So now we’re going to do the bordetella, and we’re going to be on the other side, so making still distracting him, and all the vaccines go sub-q. And we’re just going a little bit lower than his shoulder area. Oh good boy, and then he might cry, because, this is the stingy one. Or he’s going to be super brave. And he was so brave. And that’s bordetella and DAP in a puppy.

    What gauge needle do you use for injections? I'm guessing it depends on the size of the animal? What do you recommend?

    Whoa; we are realizing that the Vet Industry has over vaccinated our cats and dogs. We are trying to understand how immunization is favorable. Not vaccinating when the immunity is complete. Just have a blood test to show what is needed. Don't assume you have to go every year and allow toxic levels to cause problems. Too many Vets have dooped us into believing we have to go every year,. NOT NECESSARY.

    The mass hysteria over coronavirus meant the media suddenly stopped talking about measles. There's new fear mongering, just like that. Deaths from viruses already declined by 90 percent BEFORE vaccines. The pharmaceutical industry systematically poisons the populace. I've suffered from discrimination for my entire life because I'm in the minority on the highest functioning end of the autism spectrum. I'm expected to fend for myself. Vaccines cause customers. I'm fed up with being labeled a "retard" and a "creep" and told "we don't like your kind around here". Anybody who survived measles won't catch the same virus again due to lifelong immunity. Measles is known for short duration, and it's rarely fatal; it's a self limiting virus. Surviving a temporary ailment can't be worse than suffering from ableism for having autism. It's not genetic, the symptoms emerged upon vaccination. The symptoms of autism are the symptoms of mercury poisoning. The pro-vaccine propagandists don't know anybody with autism, they think they're experts on my condition just because they watch TV and movies.
