    Default Vet Visits

    I am going to call the vet tomorrow to find out but wondering what your vet schedule is like with an EB. The last time I had to take Bear was months ago when he scratched his cornea. He isn't due for any more shots, I don't think until June. Should bullies go every couple months, 2x a year, yearly? I know the ones with ongoing problems its more but in general is there a suggestion on how often to go? Or just like any other breed?
    I didn't do it

    You're asking the wrong person when it comes to me and Maggie ..................... she's at the vets so much for various things that I'm thinking of renting a room there!

    I take my two boys every six months for a "well puppy" visit - I am more proactive about their health than my own - but I also have a wellness plan for that which provides two free comprehensive physicals per year plus free office visits. Still, I think it's a wise idea and helps keep them in great shape.

    With two bullies and one with medical issues, we are at the vets at least once a month.

    Now that you bring it up I'll have to ask Gracie's vet about wellness visits. She needs a shot next month but I don't know how often she needs it so I'll ask then. Thanx for bringing it up.

    Personally I go once a year for a standard full exam and every other month we stop in for anal gland expressions. We go thru periods where we have issues like that 6 month period of non-stop ear infections, surgery to remove the toy, allergy issues, when I freaked out about the head tremors and had them test him for everything LOL, etc so most of the time we end up in there for more than one exam a year but I make sure he gets at least one.

    I am there every 4-5 weeks to get his anal glands done, so our Vet see's Vegas on a regular basis, If something else comes up of course I take him in for that. He gets his yearly shots in June, and I just have doc give him a quick physical since we are there so often for the glands.

    I take Silva once a year for shots and then if something comes up we go, so maybe twice a year. I am very excited that I found a Vet bully and once Stella joins the family both will be going! I am not happy where I currently take Silva and have been on the hunt for a bully vet for a while, it is a long drive but I think definitely worth it!
