Vaccinations - Yes? No?

 An Inexpensive Tool To Reduce Pet Vaccination

Check out this article on this website page to learn a tad bit more on all the goings on regarding what you can question regarding the vaccination of your dog.  One important fact too, is to understand your breed.

I've read, and have heard of at least 2 shelties that the diagnosis of autoimmune hemolytic anemia, occurred not long after vaccine boosters at middle age.  More and more research seems to be pointing us in the direction of over vaccination, which specifically has resulted in the Canine Rabies Challenge Fund.

Education on your pet's health is the first step.  I'm no expert, just always learning.  Science is moving at such a fast pace these days.

Also, for those of you in the Ottawa area, I can tell you there has already been an increase in the number of ticks found on dogs.  So if you're out in the woods, or even long grass don't forget to do a constant check on your dog.  Ticks can especially be found around the neck, ears, face and belly.  I understand right now that there is a 4 week backlog in getting the tick you find on your dog analyzed due to the high volume being seen.
