I give my dogs their shots myself and just out of curiosity asked why the "corona Vaccine" wasn't in my 7 in 1. They said it is not important, does anyone know why its listed as a vaccine to give puppies and boosters but its "not important"? THanks!
Corona is a puppy problem. If you pups are over 8wks old, chances are you wont have the problem. If you are breeding, you can purchase "the puppy shot" from several mags, and it has everything but lepto. I don't bother, my vet says as long as they are fine at 8wks, it isn't really needed. I give the shots, but all the pups see my vet for their puppy check up before they go to their new homes. I have never had a problem.
To the post saying I should have researched more before giving my pups their own shots- I bought the 7 in 1 at the vet. What more research do you need?? C'mon people, give me advice quit critisizing! I agree to the person who posted saying they give their pups all their own shots but go to the vet for a puppy check up. I think that's an awesome idea and I take my dogs once a year for a full check up.
and to think something like this might have been considered researching...sorry, some of these replies to my questions irk me. I'm here asking people who LOVE animals questions I may have and I get critisized.
As I said I am not sure. I do not give my pups or dogs the shots I take them to the vet so if I were gonna give them myself I would research BEFORE I did it and type things in the search engine like the question you asked here.I was not critisizing I was stating the truth you should research first if you are gonna take your animals care into your own hands.
You can buy anything at the vet and that dont mean you researched it. What does where you bought it have to do with research?
Calliedee, putting blind faith in your vet, or doctor, for that matter is a mistake. Vets get much of their education from pharmecuetical companies and the big, not so great, pet food companies. If vets researched everything they sold, no vet would sell Science Diet. At the end of last summer, my vet sold me Promeris for cats. Earlier this summer, the same vet told me flat out that they don't make Promeris for cats and never did. After arguing back and forth for a couple of minutes she sent the tech to see. I was right. Not only do they make Promeris for cats, but my vet had a huge display of the stuff behind their front counter. No vet can possibly know everything and the things they learn in school can be debunked a few years down the road. A good vet will continue to research things and be open to new ideas.
