RE: Question re: 7 in 1 dog vaccine

I'm just going off my own instincts. When I've had more than one vaccine, myself, one in one arm and one in the other, I've had more reactions than with just the single. Plus this is a little dog. This new vet doesn't push things. Our 18 year old cat hasn't had any vaccine since she was 8 or 9 yrs old. She doesn't go outdoors and doesn't do flea drops, none of it. She seems remarkably healthy to me, except for a bit of kitty dementia. We feel like the new vet over-treated our last two dogs in their final illness and gave us false hope. The old vet was a realist, bless his heart that finally gave out on him. But back to vaccines....I have to find that vaccine list/schedule that the AAVA (?) puts out with shots recommendations. That would probably be helpful.

Question re: 7 in 1 dog vaccine

Our new vet recommends a 7 in 1 vaccine for dogs every two years. Since our longtime vet died suddenly a couple of years ago, and he was very conservative in treatment, I am wondering if that isn't a lot for a dog to deal with at the same time? Are they more apt to have a reaction with the increased number of contents? Also, our old vet repeated shots on a three year schedule. Our dog is a 7 year old min pin without health issues. I know we're not going to find an old school vet like the one we had for 30+ years but I just would appreciate feedback on the subject. Am I worrying for nothing?

RE: Anyone have an old dog die while on the road?

I've seen some members post that they used their GPS to locate the closest vet, either for an emergency euth and/or cremation. We're lucky to have that option these days. I don't know how any of us survived without cell phones and GPS. Isn't it interesting how norms in pet care have changed over the years? Not that long ago, people just left the deceased dog or cat at the vet's office for animal control to pick up, no charge. I hear that is not an option these days. You either take him home to bury or pay for cremation. I like this way better, but it must be too expensive for many pet owners.

RE: rescued a good dog

Sleeping with your sock, now that's pure love! :B One of our girls, now gone to the Bridge, loved to sleep with her "dad's" old t-shirt or anything of his. They become so bonded to their favorite person. Bet she comes back pretty from the groomer tomorrow.

RE: rescued a good dog

Is she a Lassie type collie or a a border collie? I agree, would love to see pictures. She must think she's in heaven!

RE: Do You Travel With a Solo Siamese?

I just want to say I'm so sorry for your loss of Lexi and can relate well to that cannonball you're carrying around. We had a sealpoint Siamese from 5 weeks to 16 yrs and I still remember how painful his loss was. They do have an expiration date we can't see under all that fur, but it's just as well, so we don't spend time grieving before we have to. It's wonderful that you are thinking about a new traveling buddy. I am betting a good rescue will know their cats well enough to recommend a candidate. Best of luck to you and let us know when you find him or her.

RE: Prayers for my Macy

We do understand, completely! The little rascals like to worry us once in awhile. It's good that you have the appointment, though. Be sure and update us after that visit. Hoping all is well.

RE: Our canine friends waiting at rainbow bridge

Beautiful picture Tom, thank you for sharing, and for putting something very special in my head that will always be there, when I see a rainbow!! Sher Me, too, Sher! Newbies should check out the sticky "Waiting at the Rainbow Bridge" thread at the top of this forum. We all have beloved little buddies waiting for us just the other side of that rainbow. It's a rare phenomenon in drought-stricken California but I'll be watching for the next rainbow, remembering our babies that are waiting for us. Thanks, Tom, for the beautiful photo.

RE: What to do to correct dog agression to other dogs?

You've had her four years, Mike, and I know you're very attached to her. Would you say she is getting worse? I agree with the above responses and I'm worried that she is equally fond of you and trying to "Protect" you from everything and everybody. You've really got a stick of dynamite there. I agree with getting the muzzle and a very strong leash, but beyond that, I probably might ask the vet about some kind of medication to calm her down a bit. It must be hard on her to be on high alert all the time.

RE: Robin Williams

I keep thinking of his movie, THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP. It was a bizarre storyline but I just remember falling in love with Robin Williams, his acting range and his sad, sweet, funny and heart-wrenching character. At the end of that movie, an instrumental of "There will never be another you" was playing. How appropriate that message seems now.

RE: A wonderful animal rescuer has been lost!

Oh, what an absolutely tragic and heartbreaking loss! Hopefully, the good doctor has inspired others to carry on his work in his manner and spirit. There is just no understanding how these things can happen.

RE: Min Pin Healed from Deer Attack and has new little brother

Aww, without a doubt, Honey had a "paw" in guiding you to Scrappy. Excellent idea about the bells, too. Congrats to all!

RE: Min Pin Healed from Deer Attack and has new little brother

Oh, how cute! A lively, healthy young brother will no doubt give Rocky some extra quality time that he might not otherwise have had. I forget if Rocky was already blind or he lost his eyes in the deer attack. They sure do grieve the loss of a buddy. No doubt Rocky had missed Honey as you all do. Scrappy will realize Rocky's disability and help guide him, too. A total win-win situation. Good for you!

RE: RVs for dogs, no really

Way cute, but if I was buying one, I'd want an exterior finish. It would be a cute conversation piece on the patio, but take up too much room indoors.

RE: Our new girl!

Thanks everyone. one thing is for sure....she is fast! faster than our Shepherd was and our neighbors dogs! I hope she never takes off on me, I won`t catch her! LOL That's a serious possibility. Don't let her off leash until she's been to puppy training. Such a cutie.

RE: Prayers for my Macy

That does sound like some kind of pain level, possibly arthritis. If that's the problem, there are some vet pain meds that can give Macy quality of life for a very important period of time. I hope you take her to the vet as this is one thing you can control while you may not be able to help your uncle in a tangible way. I am sure your love and care for him speaks volumes, though. Be brave and your dog buddies will help you get through this.

RE: Prayers for my Macy

I think it's good to trust our instincts when it comes to pets. I'd take Macy to the vet, if only to relieve your mind. It could be something as simple as a foxtail in her ear, or maybe nothing, but then you'd have one less stress in your life. So sorry about the illness in your family. That's a heartbreaker. Take care of yourself.

Beautiful, Agnes! I can almost feel the cool, crisp air.

RE: What's with these crazy min pins?

Are MinPins barkers? I swear a leaf can drop in front of my friends MinPin and the dog goes off. The dog is hyper, but barks at everything that moves. Actually, he's very cute and playful dog. I think some of them are. I've heard min pins don't present well in shelters for that reason. They probably don't do well when they feel insecure,but our Darcy has a good, solid nervous system. She doesn't nuisance bark or startle at any new noise or situation. I have to say, she wasn't like that when we got her. She was pretty unstrung for awhile, but when she felt safe again, she turned into a very good dog. I think they will test the limits and when they get the message that their owner is in charge, they can relax and enjoy their spoiled doggy birthright. :B

RE: We adopted an American.

What a great program! I knew a lot of small California dogs are getting sent to the Northeast part of the States but never heard of them escaping over the border. Be prepared for a lot of "What breed of dog is he?" Just tell them he's American and they'll understand. :W BTW, those ears look kind of Papillon. Have fun!
