My dog Panzer is a nine year old Havanese. My current vet is

Hi, My dog Panzer is a nine year old Havanese. My current vet is way too expensive and my Trupanion Insurance is expensive as well (paid $600 in premiums last year and they covered nothing). I am thinking of changing insurance and changing vets. I have a free consultation and exam scheduled with Banfield Pet Hospital that is located in PetSmart. I have most of his records, but would like to organize them a little bit better in preparation for the visit. Can you kindly supply me with a list of all the vaccines and tests that are routinely done. On the bills I have from the vet office, I do see a lot of them with there next due date. For example:Rabies vaccine 3 years = due 10/26/17Heartworm and Tick Disease - last done 10/26/16Fecal stool sample for Giardia (antechamber) - last done 10/27/16Bordetella Intransal - last done 4/21/16In addition to the above, Panzer gets a CBC every six months because he had a positive reading for anaplasma. I opted not to treat him as the vet says he may never get the disease, but was exposed to it, so we just monitor his white count. Am I missing anything? For example, how often is the Bordetella intranasal given? Are most annual, with the exception of his rabies that I do every three years. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Our Fox Terrier and Dachshund received both the Rabies and

hello, our Fox Terrier and Dachshund received both the Rabies and Bordetelia (not sure of spelling?) vaccies at the same time... Our Dachshund was drowsy and lethargioc the the next day, but fine now. Our Fox the following day woke up peeing on the bed and vomiting numerous times frothy and was obviously disorientated and stumbling. We put it down to a stroke and took her to the hospital. she today is still like a recovering stroke victim, with poor stability and a right-sided body problems.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the fox terrier?Customer: Our question is, will she be able to recover? we feel that the evidence is not a stroke but rather the vacines?!

I have 2 dogs, a beagle and a mutt. Last couple of days the mutt has been hacking, then puking. Planned to take her to the vet, but she was fine yesterday and no problems since. This morning the beagle started puking, she is snorting big time tho. No hacking, just snores heavily while sleeping, then wakes herself up to snorting for a good 2 or 3 min. Then pukes. Could it just be a bug they both caught?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the beagle?Customer: The beagle is over weight, but they are both very happy dogs.

I have a three month old puppy that got into cat litter

I have a three month old puppy that got into cat litter about 8 hours ago. She has been consistently throwing up every 15-20 minutes since then. I think that the longest she has gone has been half an hour between episodes. She has what seems like dry heaves/a hoarse cough sound and then throws up. I put her food up about 4 hours ago. Still have water down. She acts hungry, she has been drinking, she has been playing normal. A week ago she had bordetella vaccine and 1 round of puppy shots. Since this is not slowing down should I head to the emergency vet?
