Question about vaccinations

i recently posted about fostering.. well, the foster people wont do a home visit til the dogs are updated on their shots... thats fine with natalya cause i know what she needs.. for all you vet techs out there, does she really need a bordetella vaccine? and theres also another one i never heard of.. a vaccine against something like adult parvo... well, for my other husky, my parents used to take her to a different vet.. the last time she was seen was 5 years ago (i know thats bad, but i just recently took her with me when i moved.. parents dont tend to listen to their 14 yr old daughters).. and there is a past due balance to this vet and they wont release her vaccine information to me unless this balance is paid.. its not gonna be paid by any of us either (they diagnosed our cat a few years back, said there was no treatment for her, she died a month or so later, and then i found that there was no cure, but some kind of treatment, so my mother has refused to pay them) ... so i was wondering, i mean, i know shes gonna need all of her shots except rabies, cause she just got that.. but if she gets certain ones without me finding out her past vaccines, will it make her sick at all? or harm her?

If it's been that long since she's been seen, re-vaccinating shouldn't be harmful.

I typically don't even consider bordetella unless they're in a highly populated dog area (i.e. dog parks, kennels, day care, etc).

You NEED to have your dog vacc against Parvo. This disease is extremely deadly and almost no dog makes it after contracting it. If you have had ANY animal in your house that has had Parvo, then you shouldn't bring anymore animals into the house for at least a year. Parvo can live that long even after deep cleanings.

So I would say:
Rabies
Parvo
Bordatella
Distemper
Plus:
Monthly Heartworm pills
Monthly Flea & Tick drops/pills

Hope that helps.

I don't give my dogs Bordatella. Every time I've ever done it that dog has GOTTEN kennel cough. But, I don't board them or go to dog parks.

Parvo shots are a must.

Yes, distemper and parvo comes in a combo shot.
