    Thumbs upFirst Vet appointment for Lucic.

    Brought Lucic to "Villa Rica Animal Hospital" for his 1st vet appointment, after hearing and reading so many stories about bringing puppies to the Vet and Parvo risks, I was pleased the vet and staff were reassuring and friendly.

    Lucic received his 9 week; DHLP,P booster #2, Deworm #2, Corona virus #1, started heart worm and flea prevention. He never saw the injection coming, did not appear to know he had received one. Lucic was also treated for ear mites (could not see mites with the naked eye, vet let us view under microscope) this vet is very good with animals and people... so relieved.

    Has anyone ever used "Trifexis" for their Labs?

    Heard of Trifexis, but I use another product.
    Sounds like his vet check went smoothly.
    Week and a half to go for ours, 5 months...
    Lucic will be there in a flash!

    YES! ...I am from Boston, huge hockey/bruins fan, my kids and I decided on Lucic over Chara, Seguin or Puck

    You might want to do a little research, I wasn't aware that Corona was too prevalent, therefore, not needed in the round of vaccinations. We never include it in ours.

    I've never vaccinated for Corona either. OP - just because a vet offers you a vaccine, does not mean your dog has to have it or even needs it. It is WISE to find out what they will be offering in advance and do your own research. My vet offers several vaccines I do not get for my dogs - never had any kind of an issue with this. You want to be careful not to do too many vaccines/meds in one visit as well. Hard on little puppies systems.

    Well....you could have just named him Boston or Bruin. I was going to name my next chocolate male Bruin, but changed my mind.
    There are dogs on the other lab board with both of those names.

    I live north/west of Boston, near the Southern NH border.
    I miss hockey.
    The lockout sucks.

    Corona is generally a self limiting disease in puppies, In all my years of working in Vet medicine (over 25 years) I have never seen a puppy with Coron virus. Parvo is still rampant here in Arizona, just had a 5 year old Chihuahua euthanized for an advanced case of Parvo who had only had the initial vaccines.

    I must have misunderstood something, I thought only puppies were at risk for Parvo?

    no - all dogs are at risk for parvo. Your dog will need boosters at certain points OR you can titer to determine whether the dog still has adequate immunity (what I do for my medically fragile dog).
