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?

My doberman puppy went to the vet to have her ears taped, for which they sedated her. They also gave her a rabies shot and microchip. She was fine and slept on the way home. She's almost 13 weeks. She woke up and we went on a short/slow version of our evening walk as she is a little lethargic. She started peeing often especially as we got closer to home, quite often as we neared peed in the floor then several times outside again. Little to no volume on most of this

I have a female 7-year old cocker spaniel and my dog has a

Hi. I have a female 7-year old cocker spaniel and my dog has a dropped jaw, is drooling, gagging. She is listless and has trouble eating and drinking. She seems to urinate and have bowel movements normally. She drags her back legs sometimes but today seems OK in that department. The vet prescribed anti-inflammatory medication which seems to have helped with the legs but not the jaw or drooling. We have been to the vet many times now, all blood tests and 2 tick panel tests have come back negative. She had her rabies vaccination last year and is up-to-date on all her other vaccinations. What should we do now?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help your spaniel. What is the spaniel's name?Customer: CharliJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Charli?Customer: She was healthy until two weeks ago. She is allergic to rice chaff BUT she only encounters that once a year.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

It kinda looks like he's wearing a swimmer's tube. this morning when I cleaned the yard , his poop was all black.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name?Customer: BullwinkleJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bullwinkle?Customer: He has never had a reaction to any vaccine before, but the last time he had the rabies was 2-3 years ago.JA: OK.
