Milo's vet visit

O.K. I had Milo at the vet today. He's scheduled for his neutering on September 18th. At that time they'll remove his four canines, saving him an unnecessary anesthesia. They'll also give him his rabies shot and heartworm test then. I would have waited a little longer to do the neutering but I don't want to risk any problems with the teeth.

For the veterans here, does it sound alright to do all the above at once? BTW, I loved the vet we saw today. Her name is Dr. Paiva and I'm told she appears on Animal Planet all the time. I'll have to watch.

Geri, they have a great website. Looks like a nice place - I liked what they had to say. I use All Creatures in Long Beach, but just in case, it's nice to have a backup.

Geri,
I like to break it up. I don't give combo shots or shots during surgery, as their immune systems are down. I like to wait until they are strong before shots esp. rabies.
I don't do shots anymore, just titres. Oh, except rabies by law.

Milo is 6 months old.

Michele, what were you looking at? I'm confused.

Geri, I did a search for Dr. Paiva and got a website for an animal hospital called Companions. But now that I looked at it again, it might not be the right one. It looks like a good place, though. Sorry for the confusion.

Michele,

I've actually heard some very good things about that place. I've heard the women who own it really love the animals and take time to make you comfortable with their treatment and care. I've considered changing because Wantagh Animal Hospital is so different since the last time I used them. It just didn't feel as if even the help liked the animals and cared about what was happening with them. I almost bolted today while I was waiting with Milo for his appointment. I must say the place is always mobbed. Because I got this doctor I'll stay with it for awhile and see how it goes. Unfortunately though I was told she's only there on Mondays and Saturdays since her primary work is in the city.

We'll see. She did do one other thing right though. She picked him up and hugged and kissed him and told me he was absolutely beautiful, and so sweet.

Well Milo and I are anxiously awaiting our play time too. I must say he met yet another havanese today when I took him back to the office. It was a very petite girl and she was crying and pulling for him. He approached very tentatively and seemed a little afraid of her. He's incredible with people -- all people and he's very comfortable with the other dogs currently in my house. They all hang out together and have no problem . . . other than the fact that he goes after all their food.
