puppy not fully vaccinated

My sister and parents just adopted a 4mo mixed lab puppy who has only had her first round of shots. They are supposed to come over on Saturday and even though we plan on keeping Taz in our bedroom and the puppy downstairs, I wanted to know if you guys think it's safe to have the puppy exposed to Taz's environment and vice versa? The main concern is that while Taz is fully vaccinated the puppy is not. Could it be dangerous for either of them?

I would ask your vet, if Taz can catch anything from the puppy or vice versa, or if there is anything you should be concerned about. I don't really know that much about dogs, but I know other kitties on here do.

I would pick up Taz's food and water dishes, and all his toys, don't know if he can catch anything from puppy sloppies, mol, but hey, why take the chance. Best of luck. I know the others on here can give you a better ans. big grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grinbig grin

Bumpurr is right about picking up all cat toys,dishes and such. Our Lab is going to be 9 years old this year, and he would grab all the cat's toys and slobber all over them.That is why we do not have any to play withfrown But there is nothing that the cat or puppy have to worry about as in catching any thing. The things cats get shots for is different then what dogs/puppies get shots for. The only thing they can both get would be rabies,fleas,ringworm,tape worm,round worms.... and other kinds of intestinal worms. And having one set of shots is better than not having any at all.Good luck and have fun with that pup! dog

Thanks for the tips guys! We keep all her stuff upstairs anyway so it shouldn't be an issue. She barely even spends time downstairs as of right now because we just moved and she is still freaked out!
