The low frequency of serious parvovirosis in adult animals allows to exclude this vaccine for the memories. Vaccines optional include those only recommended to animals with real risk of exposure to the causative agent of infection: parainfluenza, leptospirosis, Lyme borreliosis, babesiosis, and those that contain Bordetella bronchiseptica, coronavirus or herpesvirus. There are vaccines against the cough of kennels that combine virus parainfluenza and Bordetella bronchiseptica, useful when applied prior to exposure to an environment of risk, as the dog shows. One of them is inoculated via intranasal, apparently more effective than the parenteral. It is recommended to administer the vaccine a week before exposure unless you are vaccinated in the last 6 months. It considers that the protection against Bordetella bronchiseptica can last between 3-6 months. In the case of parainfluenza virus, if it comes in combination with mandatory vaccinations, vaccination protocol suitable for those is used.

Vaccines against leptospirosis have low efficiency since they only protect against the two serogroups included in the vaccine; In addition the duration of protection is short, less a year, so that in case of risk revaccination should be every 6-9 months. Not recommended inoculation dogs younger than 12 weeks of age, initially needing two vaccine doses with 2-4 weeks of separation. The vaccine against Lyme borreliosis applies from 9-12 weeks with revaccination within 2-4 weeks; a souvenir fair, annual dose is recommended before starting the era of ticks. Babesiosis vaccine does not prevent infection, but the intensity of the clinical picture; It requires two doses separated 3-4 weeks, to apply from 5 months of age; the fabrficante recommends memories every 6-12 months, depending on the risk. The vaccine against herpesvirus applies to pregnant mothers, being only recommended in hatcheries with neonatal mortality due to this virus. Currently use coronavirus vaccine because enteritis is mild and only affects pets younger than 6 weeks of age, for its low efficiency and the risk of side effects is not recommended.
