I'm not sure where to post this so I guess here is as good as any other. I'm picking up Ozzy and Elvis 9/19 They both have vet appointment the 20th. The vet asked if I wanted to get them the distemperment. how old do they have to be? I have no idea. The day that I pick them up is the day they get their first set of shots and de wormings.

The shot to vaccinate for distemper is usually included in the first three rounds of shots given to puppies. The vet probably asked because there has be some controversy about that particular vaccine more than others. All of my dogs have gotten it and been fine. Here they give them as early as 6 weeks.
