    Rabies Vaccination Required?

    i'm a vet tech too & mrweaw's got it right :) if your vet says differently, i'd be concerned. new york is the same; all cats, dogs, ferrets & horses need to be rabies vaccinated by law. i'm rabies vaccinated as well, as are most techs & all vets. usually your vet will just give you a letter or...

    back flipping chin

    raz's newest thing is to do back flips over her bath house. i caught her doing it last week, just a few times, but now she'll do a back flip over it 10-12 times in a row for no good reason! i've even caught her doing a few back flips when the bath house isn't there, but only ever in the location...

    Fleece Collar Pattern

    my vet made me one out of an old xray film -- it worked really well, you may want to see if your vet will let you have some films that didn't develop right to keep on hand. it's nice b/c we cut out just the right size for his head & kept the rest for anybody else, since my furballs aren't all...

    Giardia testing question

    i'm not sure which method of testing your vet is doing for giardia -- it can be found a few different ways. if your vet is doing the SNAP test for it, those **** things cost about $20 a piece (i did inventory at my old clinic), which says they're doing a pretty high mark up on their lab fees...

    Stinky Chins

    i know it seems obvious, but is anybody peeing in their bath house? one of mine peed in his house during bath time & then proceeded to roll in the pee filled dust -- ick!! his fur smelled to high heaven. i had to scrub the beejesus out of the house (wet dust doesn't come off easily), then refill...
