My American bulldog 8 yrs old had passed as he was boarded at my vets ! I always boarded him their yearly so I could visit family n he would get all his shots then ! Each time he came out when I pkd him up his head hung down like he was outta it , till he realized he was goin home ! 3 months ago I went to my brothers funeral to come back to the vet calling me n telling me he past away n they didnt know what happened ! I am sooooo heart broken without him !! He's the only dog I made sure was vaccinated! Other dogs I did not vaccinate n they lived a long life!

Wonderful website. Recently rescued a kitten who has ringworm. She was prescribed lime/sulpher dip which is working but has not totally cleared it. Have dipped 6 times. Also applying a topical antifungal. How do you manage ringworm at your shelter? My kitten is seperated from my two dogs and eight cats but I am afraid of them catching it. I have gotten ringworm and am being treated by a derm. Does the ringworm usually resolve? What type of disinfectant do you use at the shelter? Any info you could share on the subject would be very appreciated. Thank you

I have a 1 year old Cat that just had 5 Kittens, I want to get her Spayed, How much would i be looking at to spay her and one of her kittens? She has not been vaccinated, So I am guessing that will be necessary as well.

Several years ago Leo wrote in one of his newsletters that cats who have had annual shots for several years (I forget the exact wording here) do not need to continue with them. In fact, a visit to the vet can do more harm than good since it is possible for them to pick up a virus while there. I have not been giving my cats shots and they remain healthy, but I worry that I am doing them some sort of harm, especially since they are indoor/outdoor pets. I'd appreciate your comments.

We have rescued many Shelties over the last 20+ years and they have all enjoyed a good life until they reach about 12 - 13 years. We know that at least four of our Shelties have died of cancer: pancreas, prostate, bladder and lung. They all have been given premium dog food, regular checkups. We have read that flea control could be one of the reasons for the cancer or we could be "over" vaccinating our pets. Can you please share your thoughts on this?

I live in the Northeast. My vet has recommended giving my 2 year old Amstaff the lyme vaccination. We do get ticks in our area, but I am concerned about subjecting her to more. Do you know how safe these vaccines are?
