I just want to rant. Its been two months but im still upset. My MIL knows how I feel about vaccination. I went to great lengths to keep my dog vax free. YES thats illegal, but I would also kill anyone that tried to vax my kids and I'd probably flee the country if they became mandatory.
Okay, so I even found a Holistic Vet who was against vax and willing to see my dog on the down low. I decided not to neuter the dog either. The only reason I had him see this vet was to get my MIL off my back. She claimed my dog was emaciated and that I wasn't fit to be a dog owner. Well, I got the vets seal of approval that my dog was a healthy, well behaved in-tact male that needed no medical intervention.
Still my MIL insisted that my dog needed shots to be groomed and needed to be neutered for behavior. Again, had the holistic vet see him, got the number to a groomer who didn't check vax status and had the vet write a note to my MIL that the dog's behavior was fine and even if it wasn't, at age 5, nothing would be changed by neutering him.
I also didn't have the dog registered. WHY? because they would want him vaccinated every year!
MIL knew all of this. She was fully aware of how much money i spent to keep the dog vax free and hidden from the state.
Well, I went on vacation for two weeks and guess who Neutered and FULLY vaccinated my dog while I was away?! YEP! And she went as far as telling the vet that did it, not to release any information about the dog to me! Then I find out, she registered my dog with the state, UNDER HER NAME! So now I have a neutered dog that I can't breed, he's completely vaccinated, not just the state required rabies, and the state thinks its her dog and is going to request vaccination records every year! I told her to tell the state he's dead because there is no way in hell im doing that every year!
AS a result, my new rule is that MIL is not allowed to be with the children alone. EVER. My SO thinks im paranoid, but why shouldn't I be?
I guess I need validation here. What would you do? She vaccinated him in June.
