First questions to always ask a vet: Their opinion on raw food and their opinion on keeping intact dogs.Most of them turn into monsters.I'm sorry you had to experience this though. :(
Then he wanted to cut his nails, even though we told him that he freaks out when we try. He had two techs come in, force Goro on his side and hold him down. After a lot of Goro screams, me yelling for him to stop, Goro's peeing and crapping himself, the vet yelled at us saying it was our fault that he was like that. We told him that the breed in general doesn't like getting their nails clipped and that we have tried to expose him to getting his nails trimmed in the past. He flat out told us "You're lying" and stormed out the run to clean himself off (Goro peed on him). It was horrible!
How long is a titer considered valid? Do you have to do them every year?
How long is it valid
@PoeticDragon, I was planning on sending any future blood work for Kouda to Dr Dodds so she can check his thyroid again. Depending on how close you are to Garden Grove, you wouldn't even have to ship it.Prices here:http://labordatenbank.com/cake/hemopet/samples/hemopet_form
Honestly you really have to be prepared for whatever they may throw at you. There is a balance when you find the right one....Basically advocate for your dog(s) like you would do for your kids. Change does not happen in a vacuum. I know some of the training centers here are a bit more flexible so the titers are being honored if there is proof of initial vaccs (three rounds).
I actually care about my dogs not picking up parvo/distemper, far more than licensing, classes, or kenneling.
