I don't give it. It doesn't last a whole year. A friend of mine took two puppies to the vet for the shop, and put them back in the car for a 5-minute ride home. She went to the back to get them out, and one was fine, the other was dead. That scares me more than the disease does. If the dog gets sick, you can give them antibiotics. But if the dog dies from trying to prevent it, you just feel awful. For a while, my vet was making me sign a paper saying I refused the shot. Now they don't.
With the river behind me, rats do come up, and I poison them, but the dogs do get one now and again. Thankfully, they just kill and do not try to eat them. Evenso, that's scary too.
Quinnie is going in on Thursday for her boosters. What to do?
