Hi everyone! Just took my 8.5 week old for her first vet visit with our vet (new to us because this is our first pet since my childhood family dog) they talked me into repeating the first distemper vaccine that the breedwe's vet had given her at 6 weeks. They said 8 weeks is when they typically start thE series of distemper shots because any younger they are still relying on mother's milk for antibodies and therefore don't process the vaccine antibodies as well (or something along this lines! 😂). Now I'm concerned that she may not have needed a repeat of it. Also, they sent her home with a dewormer even though her fecal was negative. She has mild puppy pyroderma as well which they said to just wipe with baby wipes and it should subside. Does all of this sound normal!? Sorry for so many questions. I'm so new at this and want to be sure I'm making the best decisions for her and that I can trust our new vet! Thanks for any input!
