I understand completely your nervousness abut shots ..
I waited a long time before I would allow the vet to administer the rabies shot and we had many conversations about it and which vaccine to use . Eventually it came down to the fact that the it is the law ..
Our vet is 45 minutes from our home .. I alays stay up there for at least an hour after the appointment just in case they would have an adverse reaction .. So far we have never had a problem .. I just put them in the stroller and walk them around and observe them .. They have been fine ..
Both our dogs have had bordatella shots - it is done throught the nose and they both tolerated it well .. I do not board them but they had to get them because of obedience classes and just in case .. The vet insisted and I understood why perfectly ..
My pointer had kennel cough once and it is so debilitating to the dog .. I had no idea what it was .. until I took him to the vet .. I was so annoyed as he never should have gotten it .. Live and learn ..
