The lady I got Summer from told me that Summer was up to date on all of her shots except rabies. So when Summer was spayed last week she got her rabies shot, too the same day. Well, this lady's vet faxed over all of Summer's records a few months ago when I got Summer to the vet that I use. Well yesterday I am sitting in class and my phone was vibrating...it was my vet. They said Summer missed her third distemper shot. Why they waited this long to tell me, I don't know. I thought that she was up to date? I mean, Im taking her on Monday to get the shot she supposedly missed...but is this bad? That she didn't get her shots in the right sequence or something? And if she did get this shot already will having a second be harmful? Im probably over reacting but I am mad at this lady.
Ace, Toby's records were all screwed up that came from his breeder too. The vet really had to disect them to figure out what he had already had. I hope they got it right. I don't think you are being a worry wart. I hope that Toby has gotten everything he should have and not too much of anything.
You shouldn't have anything to worry about, it is just a precaution. It won't hurt her to get it, even if she already has. Think of the animals in the shelter, well, at our shelter all animals are vaccinated as soon as they come in, and most of the time we have no record what so ever. She will be fine I am sure.
Thanks guys, I didn't even think about dogs that go to shelters. I guess an extra shot won't hurt it, it's better than her missing it all together. That lady who "bred" Summer's litter was an idiot, so I am not surprised. Oh well, off to the vet we go on Monday... =0)
well this is nothing to do with your situation, but a vet was wrong, my uncle and auntie breed show GSDs, they get all of there GSDs hips done when they turn 1, well anyway, my uncle took Keira the best shape dog they have to the vet to get her hips tested, and the vet said" they are no point sending the tests away as her hips are terrible" well my uncle sent them away anyway and they came back 7 out of 100 which is very very good. the same happened to another one of the GSDs and her hipse were 6. my aunt said that it was a new vett and idn't no much. so vets can be wrong
