Question Baby Needs Shots, Help!

My 8 month old needs his shots.

Now, I've talked to the lady, and he hasn't had any. I've seen on some charts that they're supposed to start getting shots at 4-5 months old.

Assuming he hasn't had any yet, what should I do? What shots should I give him now? I don't know if he still needs all of them or since he missed some I should just 'skip' them.

I am going to the store to buy his shots in a week, so I need to know. I will give them myself. (I do know how.)

Oh, and his Dam is up-to-date on all shots and always has been, so he comes from a vaccinated mother.

Thank you!

Contact your vet.

And he will still need a series of vaccinations even though you are starting late.

You can get an idea of what is recommended by looking at this (the most recent recommendations) chart:

I had my foal vaccinated by the vet starting at four months, he gave him a tetnus and flu vaccine, he came back a month later for to give him a booster injection.
