Today was Bucky's and Lily's trip to the vet. I still can't get over how amazing our vet is. It's unfortunate that she doesn't treat birds (at least,she's never said she does). She might, but I spaced today and forgot to ask. Neither Elsa nor Gilbert have had to have a vet's visit since I got them, but a friend of ours has the number of a good avian vet for when and if we need one. Anyways, Bucky was a very good boy and was very calm the whole time. Lily is anxious and fear aggressive in nature, but she calms right down once she's in the exam room with the vet and the assistant. Lily doesn't need her shots for another three years, but Bucky isn't quite old enough for the three-year shots yet. Next thing on the agenda for Bucky is to get a walking harness and an appointment for him to get neutered. Our local humane society does spay and neuter surgeries for free for pets owned by city residents.
I'm glad the vet appointment went well with both Lily and Bucky!
Maybe it is standart procedure over there, but I find it odd that adult dogs only get vaccines every three years.
Here in my country it's twice per year and one of the obligatory vaccines that they take each year is the Rabies shot. The other vaccine varies, sometimes it's a combo of different immunizations, while others it's just the one depending on the dog's vaccination record. Dogs also get dewormed every 3 months.
RIP sweet Tito (Summer 2008 - January 17th 2013).
You are missed and never will be forgotten.
Until we started going to this vet, I didn't know we could do the every three years shots. We started doing it because shots stress Lily out, so the vet offered the three year vaccines so she wouldn't get stressed as often. With Bucky, I believe he has to be at least 1 year old before he can get the three year vaccine. And we still get them dewormed, as well.
