I always v, accinate my dogs at home. In doing so recently the needle casing came off right at the end of the shot. I am pretty sure my dog received the majority of the shot but I am concerned that she may not have. Can I safely re-vaccinate her with the 5 in 1 vaccination?

wait 3 weeks then either have a titer test done or revaccinate if your not sure, but to be honest being its the same does for 5lbs and 105lbs, generally as long as the dog got at least 1/2 of it your fine
(personaly I would TITER TEST rather than revaccinate, I stopped doing "routein vacinations" about 6 1/2 yrs ago, my almost 7yr old Chinese crested got her puppy shots, then boosters at a year...6 yrs later her titer tests are showing good immunity and I only revaccinate every 3 yrs for rabies a required by law. (though the titer on rabies always comes back good too)
I use the same routein for my other crested and will be doing it for the dobe girl I adopted in November...she got her "2yr old boosters" before I got her...so ill titer her next winter and see where her titers lay...

I wouldn't revaccinate.
I did Titers on my now 14 and 13 year old dogs they always came back high.

Since then going on 7years no vaccines,They just damage their immune systems.

I wonder if Human gets vaccinated every year? Don't think so ,thats because like dogs we have an immune system.

Google Vaccinosis

I personally don't go with the 5 in 1.

I do parvo, distemper, rabies only.

Yes, OP. Wait 2-4 weeks and re-vaccinate. Puppies who are properly vaccinated receive a series of 4 vaccines.

Getting two doses won't hurt your adult dog.
