A friend who boards at a nice Northern Virginia facility just called and she's livid.
She always schedules her Spring Vaccines in 2 visits with half the shots the first visit and the remainder on the 2nd.
A month ago she called a bit peeved in that the Vet gave her gelding all of them at once. She was in contact with the office
and did express her disappointment and they of course apologized.
Yesterday the Vet returned to the same facility and once again gave him all his Spring Vaccines ....
I'm curious if anyone can shed some light on the safety (or unsafety) of being double vaccinated?
(To add insult to injury since she had not left a check to cover the visit they took the liberty of billing her credit card they kept on file)

I don't think there will be any impacts on Dobbin's health, especially if they were a month apart. I agree that she should be demanding at least one, if not both, visits get credited back to her card. Inexcusable.

When I worked at the Health Department, we used to regularly do this to children, without noticeable harm. The kid would come in and the mother would say he had some shots, but she didn't know where or when. School wouldn't let him in without one dose of every vaccine. We would give a dose of everything. Then, she would find the old records and we'd find that we gave the same vaccines another health department gave them a month before when the family lived in a different county. The risk of a vaccine reaction goes up, but is still pretty low.
I would be angry at the vet's office. They are clearly pretty disorganized.
