Over vaccination has been in the news a lot lately. Some information has been good and led to good discussions in the veterinary industry. Some information has been completely lacking in scientific fact. Vaccines are still your best defense against some very lethal diseases.
In dogs, because parvo and distemper have become rarer in the face of vaccination many people have become complacent in vaccinating their pets. Don’t do this! Parvo and distemper are both deadly diseases and still very much here. Yes, we are still seeing cases. Puppies should get a series of 3 vaccines. We give a combination vaccine for distemper and parvo. One shot for two diseases. Following that they should get yearly or every 3 years depending on the vaccine given.
Kittens should be given a series of three feline distemper/calici combination vaccine. Every 1 to 3 years after that. Read More
Who’s Actually Doing the Anesthetic Dental on Your Pet?
You might find this surprising but most veterinarians aren’t even in the room when your dog or cat gets a dental. Most often a technician performs this on your pet while they are under anesthesia. Your next question is probably “aren’t the doctors required to be there and do the procedure?” The answer is no. The veterinary industry as a whole lacks an entity that sets standards and enforces those standards.
Don’t panic! If your cat or dog is a patient at North County Animal Hospital, Dr. Sinko will ALWAYS perform the induction, place the esophageal tube and do the entire dental cleaning and extractions if necessary!
