    Vacine overdose question

    We just had a Belgian Malinois show up at our door this past Sunday.
    He appears to be about 1 year old, healthy and neutered. If we cant find the owners, we are planning to {adopt} this dog since he apparently has adopted us. Not having any knowledge of his vaccinations, will he be harmed being re-vaccinated for all the diseases and illnesses for a dog his age. We also need these records in order to kennel him when we leave town.

    Thanks for any info.

    Hi there,
    No, there really is not problem with overdosing vaccinations. Have someone check to make sure he is not microchipped; these large pure breed dogs do not usually run loose and as you likely are doing already, try to see if someone is missing this beautiful guy. Dr. Sandy
