She is a corgidor (half corgi, half labrador) and about 1 years old. We got her from the SPCA, so no one is really sure of her age or breed. We got her about 3 months ago.
She came fixed, and she came with all the puppy shots. The "fixed" I was thrilled with, the shots, a little less so. I would have liked to look a few things up first. Any sites or book recommendations? I am somewhat of a newbie to thinking critically about vaccines and pets.
She still needs her rabies shot (they do not do it at the SPCA as a vet needs to administer it and they use vet techs???? or so they told me). It might also be a way to ensure we visit a vet. I think it is illegal here not to get your dog their rabies shot. Sigh. I do think it is the only pet shot that is mandatory.
I strongly suspect most of the kennels around here also require pets to be up to date on their vaxxes. I have used my mother in the past to look after pets when we went away, but it is a PITA for anything but long trips. My mother lives 2.5 hours away, so going to get my mother or bring the pet/s to my mother for an overnight trip is nutty. I don't think the kennel situation will cause me to vax though, I will just get creative looking for pet sitters or other solutions.
So tell me about your pet, your vet and vaccines issues.
