  i was talking with a co worker the other night, and we were discussing whether or not it is important to keep your dog up to date on their shots...what are your thoughts? do you keep them up to date? or not vaccinate at all? what are the pros and cons?

Yes! Not only for my doggie's health, but because the place we board him while we are on vacation requires it.

We will be getting a dog very soon and plan to stay up to date on vaccinations. Our dog will travel with us and I want to protect it as well as others.

My cat is 18 and I have not been the best at getting her shots. She is 18 and stays inside. She got a rabies vaccine and one other so she could be boarded a couple night 1 1/2 years ago. 3 years before that she got a rabies vax. She has has antibiotics twice in 18 years. One was because she caught a virus from a mouse she caught and the other was for an abscess.

I used to have a regular vet. However, everytime I went in...I would be told that the bill would be around $60. Id go to pick up my dog and the bill would be twice that if not more. This happend EVERYTIME! My dog would be given "tests" that I didnt ask for. Finally after 5 years I stopped going. Mostly, B/C I became very ill and could no longer afford such expense. I dont like picking between my meds or the dogs, but Im sorry, I love my daughter doggie and our old salt dog, but I come first. However, I do think its important to get the most important biggie shots.I found that our Ag store has a vet that comes in twice a week to give "maintenance meds" to dogs. Its much cheapter, I know EXACTLY what I am paying for. He doesnt "pad" the bill with un needed tests when my dogs are healthy. I do think getting the big shots, and heartworm meds with tick and flea management is important. Dogs feel pain and discomfort just as we do. Dont get a dog if your not going to have interaction with them, feed them right, and keep up with basic medical care, and also emergency care. I dont understand people who get a dog and treat it terrible. I would prefer an evening with my dog than some people and family I know! LOL!

Yes absolutely. If you have dogs, you have to take care of them which includes getting them their shots, vaccinations, checkups, and I get mine groomed! I just love them so much, they are part of my family!

Two of my dogs get all the shots and my other dog only gets the rabies shot. She has reaction to all the other shots.
