SPRING IS NEAR AND SO ARE TICKS, MOSQUITOS and critters

by ROSEPOINT KENNELS on 03/19/15

NOW is the time to start heartguard and frontline.  Early prevention is the key to keeping your hunting companion healthy.   Its more affordable then treatment or even painful death.  Stick with name brands, trust, tried and true.  Do not use knock offs.  Especially Pet Armor although the main ingredient is the same, the inert ingredients are very posionous as we found out the hard way and lot two pups from using this product.  Its also a good time to get an a current rabies shot and annual lepto shot as critters are waking up from winter.

Dangers of common veterinary vaccine practices

by ROSEPOINT KENNELS on 02/17/15

For years we have advised our new clients about the dangers of  multi vaccine reactions,  puppies and dogs should only be vaccinated on full stomachs and when completely healthly and not during stressedful periods.  Vaccines should be giving seperately, with a minium of a 3 week period in between shots.  A 5 way shot is fine.  A RABIES shot should NEVER be give with any other shot or 2 months before being bred.   Just this weekend we recieve a call from one of our dog owners, thier vet gave a lymes, rabies and 7 way,  a couple weeks later the dog developed a fast growing mass the size of a orange at the injection site..  So again we caution you not to give more then one vaccine at a time.
