I have a question about my puppy. Nothing is the matter.

Hi. I have a question about my puppy.JA: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with your puppy?Customer: Nothing is the matter. It's more of a general question. I got his sister about 7 weeks ago at 8 weeks old and have been taking her to get rounds of shots at the vet after she received an initial 5 way shot. She's had 2 rounds with 1 more to go that includes rabies and such. I just got this puppy (her brother) this weekend, now 15 weeks old. The owner said that he had a 5 way (same time she did) and also a "9 way?" I want them to get on the same type of schedule but have no idea what shots he needs to catch up. The only thing I know that he needs for sure is rabies and kennel cough.JA: Coughing can be worrying. The Veterinarian will know what you should do. What is the puppy's name?Customer: He's not coughing. Not at all what I said. I'm assuming I'm typing to automated answers?JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your puppy?Customer: Yep, Just as I thought

I will be adopting a 6 year old dachshund. I don't know the dogs shot history. What types of shots should they get initially and then what is the schedule of shots they should be getting moving forward? I know flea and heart worm medication needs to be given monthly but what else? Thanks.

I purchased a german short haired pointer from a breeder

Hello, i purchased a german short haired pointer from a breeder about three weeks ago. The puppy already had received one round of vaccinations from the breeder . I took him to a vet last week to get his 12 week vaccinations and the vet told me that he was given the vaccinations to early and it was basically like injecting water, so the veterinarian recommended starting over with the all of the vaccinations. I'm concerned about over-vaccination. Should i be concerned or just continue with the vaccination schedule as planned?

I brought home my 2 Siberian puppies yesterday. The breeder

I brought home my 2 Siberian puppies yesterday. The breeder hadn't feed them breakfast or dinner to print car sickness etc. I gave them a 1/4 ration when we arrived home then a few hours later another 1/2. They are energetic, calm, drinking, playing etc. They developed diarrhea last evening, varying consistencies, no unusual smell, mucous or blood. They have had their first round of vaccines, have been wormed 3x since birth. I purchased them from a reputable AKC breeder.

Hi have a new puppy, just got off the plane last night and he will twist his tail sharply to the side and sort of snap back at his hind leg.I was thinking it could be gas?? Now it is almost 8 am and he still does the same thing. He can stand normally, tail straight and then a few seconds letter he kind of crunches to the side tail twisted sideways and favoring that back hind almost like he is crippling up on that one back side
