Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

what breed is she?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

the whole reason this is an issue is due to overdue rabies......if she were up to date on rabies.....none of this would be happening like this....

she is mixed..has black tongue so they say chow mix..had her 11 years she doesnt look like chow..just black tongue

i will...i wanted to say she was fearful in first facility ...we moved her to the one they usuallly use..no but eyes cloudy..never been apart from me has separation anxiety..i read vets and techs are bitten frequently at the vets and they dont go around trying to put it down

you are right....we are bitten frequently......and that is not a reason to put a dog down.....the problem is the lack of rabies vaccine...but many older dogs will bite.....if they have quarantined her for 10 days why cannot they just release her?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

what state do you live in?

ok..she was supposed to come home last monday till bite on vet tech..the public health guy said no one wanted to put her down and then i was served by city

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
i was just thinking a bite in a vets office is not the same as out in public..esp prolonged quarantine

why were you served by the city? For what?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
to come to town hall meeting to determine if vicious if found to be..have to get her out of town in three days or they seize her and euthanize her

well that is reasonable....will your vet say she is not vicious? She does not sound vicious...she sounds old and older dogs are grumpy...

i dont have a vet just moved here 2 months ago

would the vet at the facility speak for you or even the vet tech that was bitten could.....

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

the vet tech that was bitten should not your dog is just old and grumpy and not vicious....
