Fellow netters,

Any of you veterinary science people ever hear of osteodystrophy in weimaraner puppies being caused by combined distemper/parvo virus vaccines?  I am about to get a weim puppy and have been advised to enter into a lengthy vaccination schedule to avoid problems.   

My vet did a bit of research and found  a paper stating that distemper virus had been isolated from a few puppies with osteodystrophy and two vaccine virus strains had been implicated, but not proven.  She found nothing about using combination vaccines.

I am wondering if this is just another urban legend?
