    I have some puppy Distemper and parvo vaccines. Some how the temperature gage in refrigerator was turned all the way down, everything froze. Are the vaccines still good after freezing?

    I wouldn't trust them, but you could probably call the manufacturer or a vet to find out for sure.

    I wouldnt trust them either. I've been breeding canines for many u=years & wouldn't chance it. Not for pups or annual boosters

    nope because it would kill the modified live viruses in the shots they would not work after they have been froze. the color of it should change too when they spoil or r left out of the fridge to long also to help u to know they r not good. i buy my boosters at tsc they r about $5-7 depending on if i buy puppy, dog or cat vaccines there. i'd properly dispose of them and go to tsc and just buy new ones and give them.

    I wouldn't use them either. Why risk distemper or parvo over 10 bucks or even 20?
