    The rabies is a 3 year shot per the records but saying I need to redo in 1. They used the defensor3, 345832, 3 year, killed

    She was laser spayed 12/2/20
    It’s not about “how far it goes” but what’s left as shots a dog had in the body. Vets will give dogs shot yearly or some every 3 yrs. But if a dog or cat still have traces in the blood work you can keep that paperwork of the results to prove your pet is still good n don’t need any shots or a specific one. Google Titer test..

    Thank you so much! I'm going to request my vet do the titer test before administering any November vaccines. I don't want Shirley to have to get anything she doesn't need and get only what she does. I'm thinking since Shirley isn't exposed to other dogs that the vet won't see a need to continue parvo or bordatella.

    Yes, check what your dog vet says. Castor once had a rabies shot as he went with us to Denmark (he loved Legoland!), and that offered a three-year protection. If I remember correctly, there were one-year and three-year rabies shots. We never renewed it as he hasn't been abroad since.

    check the wording on the reminder... does it say assessment or shot? Something new my vet started is a one year reminder assessment of the upcoming shot for the NEXT year. Very confusing

    Is it known if Shirley was vaccinated as a pup and prior to coming to you or could it be that the vet treats her like a pup (I am guessing here that pups get several shorts to build up some immunity?). Worth checking with the vet.

    I do not know anything other than she was a breeder surrender and was way overbred due to the amount of c-section scars even on her side. With her being bred and so much from a breeder, I'm sure they kept up on her shots to protect their money maker. I figured she went to the vet immediately upon arrival to the rescue and they may have just gave her everything to be safe, but I don't know what all is actually needed to be continued since she had to go somewhere where she would be the only dog (with me). She's aggressive towards other dogs is what the rescue told me. She has done well and not shown any aggression towards any dogs at the petsmart groomers, they do the express service while I wait and is why I take her there. I do not ever want her going back into a cage so I won't take her to a regular groomer or vet for grooming and leave her for the day to be caged. I live on acreage so she has no need to go to a dog park and I'm home 24/7 disabled so she has no need for daycare or anything of the sorts to be around other dogs and she doesn't get close to other dogs at the petsmart groomers.

    I see - Shirley is one lucky dog to be with you now! Could I just ask one more thing: what kind of grooming does she get? I have seen other bulldog owners here too talking about taking their dogs to the groomer's and I always wondered what they do there?! Shower and nails trimmed? Castor gets his nails trimmed when we take him to the vet and he only showers once or twice a year (I fully understand you may not be able to do that - Castor loves the shower, but my back will hurt for days afterwards and the bathroom will be soaking wet with dog shampoo all over the place!).

    I don't yet have full control over miss Shirley to attempt to have her in the shower with me yet (I would have my Great Danes literally shower with me about once a month) and I can't do the anal glands or deep ear cleaning with one working arm. What's included in the "bath and brush" I get for her is: the bath, anal glands, blow dry, deep ear cleaning, nail trim, brush, and a coat sheen to help reduce shedding. All for $33.00 here. Shirley's coat tends to get oily and she gets real itchy so when she's rubbing on everything she can I take her in. I'd rather spend the money and get her bathed etc than to allow her to get any skin irritations or anything else to cause her discomfort. I do brush her daily, but it's so hard to get her to stay standing and stretch them wrinkles out lol! I do not give her any people food, only her Zignature catfish (pretty sure that is cause of oily coat from the omegas and natural fish oil) and grandma Lucy's organic baked dog treats for her training sessions. Her foster mom at the rescue would give her smarties candy, I don't think that's good for dogs - any sugar or candy. Not like Shirley even chewed them anyways lol

    Thanks for explaining; sounds like a full spa treatment for Shirley :-)

    This was my thought. Since she was a rescue it could be they are treating her as a "puppy" with regards to shots as they might have no idea what, if anything, she has previously received.

    Have you tried any of the other Zignature proteins? Zignature is a good food and you can rotate between each bag. I personally like to rotate between different proteins.
