sea4th Posted July 11, 2007 Report Share Posted July 11, 2007 Is there any reason in particular the "all in one" shot no longer includes lepto? Is there any reason why a vet clinic would not provide lepto vaccs. There is an animal clinic closer to me that I had started taking my rescues to. Stella was one of the dogs that I paid to have everything done on her. Stella's new owner, my daughter, took her to the vet today for a final round of shots and to have her stitches removed. That vet is the one who noticed the absence of lepto in her vet records. When I called - and I didn't like their attitude, they said they don't give them, wouldn't tell me why, that they just don't, almost as though my asking was an annoyance. I called back, pissed off about the attitude I encountered and got a hold of someone a little more diplomatic who said they see no cases of lepto in NE Ohio that they've stopped giving it (hmmm. Maybe because the vaccs eradicated cases of lepto?), that they don't even carry it anymore and I should just tell new owners that we don't have lepto in NE Ohio anymore and their own vet should administer it. 'scuse me - I told her. I had a friend who lost her BC to lepto a couple of years back. I'd be interested in feedback on this. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
