I switched vets again. I am so much more comfortable with holistic than conventional that we'll make it work.
I wanted your input. I was surprised that the new vet recommended a leptospirosis vax so strongly until I got home and did some internet research. It turns out that Laurel leads a very high risk lifestyle and we are in a high risk area.
The shelters are full of people who look just like me, but I am not homeless. The shelters are full of dogs who look just like Laurel, but they are NOT Laurel. Toy breeds are at very high risk of adverse vaccine reactions and we are dealing with that already. I overvaccinated Laurel because we are in a very high risk area for parvo. The cytopoint is wearing off and she's scratching again.
The vet thinks she is Jack Russell and Chi, but she only weighs six pounds at eight months. I was told 3/4 Chi and 1/4 MinPin by the person I got her from and more likely Chi and Yorkie by friends and groomer.
I love my dog, but puppyhood has been exhausting because of all the drama! I don't mind paying for medical care, I just want my puppy to be healthy.
