is there a national registry of shots given to dogs. We have a dog , shishu poodle mix, puppy about 3-6 months old 7 lbs, with little to no history, we were given a card with the vaccination stickers, but it only has the stickers and date, does not have who or where it was given or any other info. is there a way to validate whether the dog got these shots with just these stickers?

I had a good expeirence the first time I used you so I would like your advice again: I am going to be getting a puppy from someone who is not a breeder, it was an accidental. The breed of the dog is a queensland, and what age can she be separated from the mother? Currently she is 4 weeks old I know it should be somewhere between 6 and 8 weeks old.I give my dogs all their booster shots but can you tell me what schedule and time frame for the parvo and booster shots for the puppy as well as wormer I currently use Pancur wormer on my older queensland.Thank YouMary Ferreira

My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard

My dog was diagnosed with kennel cough. Given the standard antibiotic and temaril p. Since being on the temaril, he's had zero coughing episodes. I know conditions typically get worse, and he has not. Whatever was causing it has not seemed to progress as he shows no other signs of being ill. He's eating, playing, chasing aquirrels and mailmen, barking at the kids on the street and such. The vet listened closely to his heart and lungs and heard nothing. He just said that his tonsils were slightly inflamed. Now, I'm not sure how he got sick. He doesn't interact with other dogs. He hasn't gotten loose. He went to a groomer 3 weeks ago, but the incubation period is 3 to 10 days, so he likely didn't get it there. So that scares me. But all things being said, he is perfectly normal while on the temaril/antibiotics coctail. Is there any kind of indication I would see that he is getting better? Or is the temaril just masking the issue and will he regress when we stop the meds?

2 weeks now we have noticed our puppy doing this odd

for about 2 weeks now we have noticed our puppy doing this odd chattering with her mouth. we first noticed it when we went to give her a treat, we thought it was just her being impatient and anxious for her treat. this morning my son pointed out there is now a strong constant twitching on the top of her skull above her eyes and between her ears, her whole heads appears to move, my son said "it looks like her brain it trying to pop out". when she's laying still the movement is very obvious, when she lifts her head up from a laying position her whole head wobbles like she's loosing control of it. yet when she is walking or being pet it seems to stop. she's eating and drinking and is behaving normal, a little more calm than usual but not a big change in her behavior to be alarmed. any idea what the twitching could be.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the puppy. What is the puppy's name?Customer: chevy she is about 11 months old.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the puppy?Customer: shes over all healthy. she chews on random things. mostly wood, shes chewed up my raised garden bed and some plywood we put up to stop the dogs from getting into our pool area. but she hasn't strange after chewing on them.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

I noticed that my dog's gums are darker this morning than

Hi. I noticed that my dog's gums are darker this morning than normal. He is a 3 year old yellow lab mix and has healthy teeth. He has not been over heated at all - I live in northern Michigan and the temp has been in the 60's and 70's over the last week. The gum just above his teeth are his normal pink, but they are quite dark starting about 1/2 inch above that. He shows no sign of illness and is pooping and peeing normally. Tghis happened overnight.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: Bullet. He was found as a stray on a military rifle range when he was 9 months old. The only new thing is that he has a big bone that he has been chewing on - it has not splintered - it is too big and tough for that. This is not the first time he has had a bone like this and he has not been chewing it more than usualJA: Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bullet?Customer: just the change in gum color. what can cause that?JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Our regular vet is not a believer in annual booster

Our regular vet is not a believer in annual booster vaccines. Our female border collie had her puppy shots and one year boosters. We would like to have her spayed and every where that we call want her vaccinations up to date. Our vet insists this is not necessary but unfortunately she is not able to do surgery herself. Do you know of clinics in the west GTA that would support us?
