So far I've had one or two minimal claims, and I mean under $50--my terrier is over 2 now, but has enjoyed perfect health. His breeder has urged me not to immunize him any further until he is 7, as they can encounter complications and his immune system is likely to be damaged by being injected with disease. My sister's Sammy got kennel cough even after being immunized--the booster does not protect against all viral forms of kennel cough. I'm afraid if I don't immunize, and he gets something like kennel cough, Trupanion will not help. Do they even test which strain a dog gets? Could we even know if was s strain covered by the booster? I keep him out of dog parks now & I groom him myself. But I do not want to set him up for illness by making him sick from his shots. I read the veterinary industry is reviewing their immunization schedule because of health concerns. Any thoughts?
