Why or why not?
With light and love
nope....too many pets of friends have developed strange cysts and cancers...my unvaxed cats are indoor and are not at risk for anything.
I have to vaccinate my dog in order to get a document that allows me to take her on a plane. :-/
Yes, but because he has to be regisitered through military housing, and has to be updated on rabies. Also, parvo is VERY bad in this area, and in the last month, I've seen about 6 stories where dogs have died from parvo here. :/
Yes but just for rabies. It's required to get his registration. I don't know if there is a way around it legally. Also we live out in the country where he could come into contact with rabid animals, we don't need an Old Yeller sequel. I don't like to do it.
Quoting HiNeedNiki:I just posted about this saturday, am required legally to do it annually for rabies but I canceled the appointment for my cat, i'm afraid of injection site cancer, she's frail and indoors only.But if I get a dog i'll only maybe do it minimally his first year to keep health agreement n anyway I read a rabies shot actually lasts more like 7 years. I'm going to research first.Btw because my dog who died 2 yrs ago was not up to date at time of her death, I was actually DENIED the right to adopt from a shelter here!! So at next shelter I never told them I owned a dog but I messed up n said I own a cat (coz I wanted to get a dog who's good with cats) n they won't ley me adopt until she's UTD!
After the first few years I'm only required to get a rabies vax for my dog every three years bcause they say it lasts long enough.
i never even thought about it until this group. for any future pets, I'll only do what I absolutely have to by law.
Vet wants me to get the 2 month shots for my cats. They are indoor only cats. What do you all think?
