I would like to take Honey out of the country one day - I've dreamed of taking her on holiday to Ibiza with me! So if I ever do, she will need a rabies shot

I did read a lot about sweet Gino. To be honest, I wouldn't have thought twice about the vet recommending annual boosters if I hadn't of read a few threads he was mentioned in. Xx

I'm not sure tbh, the breeder only gives them the first set and that's it, even the ones she keeps, but I might get him checked in a year or two for piece of mind..

I'm the same! When Max's breeder said that she doesn't vaccinate I was really confused as to why not, until I did some reading up on here! I was chatting with some friends the other day and it came up in conversation and I told them that Max wasn't vaccinated and they were really shocked. It's sad how few people are aware of the risks

Agreed, I was just the same though, would have just gone along with it - the vet says I should be doing it so I don't question it right! X

I'm glad you asked this question because I've been wondering about this. Vets really push the boosters. They kept telling me to come back for boosters every time I went in to get the first shots done. I wouldn't have known not to go, but then our dogs when I was a kid were never taken in for boosters.

They really push for boosters bc they think if you don't do an annual booster, you won't ever come back for an annual check up, which is where they make a huge chunk of their money. The sad thing is that I think people would go there for an annual checkup even if boosters were not needed. For example, I still go every year for physical check up, labs, and even dentals for Lola.

Is it just a check up? I'd be worried they'd ask me if they've had their boosters... I don't do well with arguing with people if they have a different opinion. I guess I'll have to cross that road.

Of course at the checkup they will ask and recommend a booster but you can ask for titers at that point or if you want to wait on titers, just tell them u plan on doing titers soon. I know what u mean by not wanting to be confrontational but at the end of the day, those are your babies not theirs. So u get to decide what you want to do, not them bc if something bad (heaven forbid) does happen as a result of the vaccine they recommended, u think they're gonna pay for it emotionally and financially? Nope, only u and hubby. If they really push and don't want to titer, then I would find a new vet love.
