I am breeding from my lab and it has been suggested she should have a herpes virus vaccination however my vet tells me they are out of stock and unable to advise when/if they will get them. Any suggestions as to whether it is necessary or how I can get hold of it?

I always use the herpes vaccination. However, unfortunately there often seems to be a problem with the production and availability. You could try phoning round other vets in your area to see if anyone has any. This is the recommendation according to the manufacturer

First injection: Either during heat or 7 –10 days after the presumed date of mating.

Second injection: 1 to 2 weeks before the expected date of whelping.

Revaccination: during each pregnancy, according to the same schedule.
