Do all your pets receive heartworm, rabies and other preventative medications?

How do/can you keep track of all your animals for needed flea control, rabies, distemper, etc medications? Do you microchip them? My little Merlon Cocker Spaniel (10 years old) had skin cancer and it spread so quickly we had to euthanize him (July 2018) before it spread to his bones, which would have really caused him a lot of needless pain. What do you do in that sort of situation? Do you administer expensive chemotherapy with no assurance of any amelioration of it’s condition, or do you euthanize it, knowing a cure is hopeless?

I am sorry for the loss of your little Merlon Cocker Spaniel. All of our animals do have a microchip. Our onsite Hospital has an appointment book to keep track of needed treatments, preventative and otherwise. We do use chemotherapy and alternative therapy to treat cancer. We do not allow our animals to needlessly suffer. If pain cannot be managed an animal is euthanized. However, a diagnosis of a condition that is not curable does not mean that an animal is immediately euthanized.
