    Hi Everyone! I'm a little worried. A week and a half ago I rescued this 2 and a half month old sphynx kitten. She's gorgeous and super sweet. Everything seemed fine until Saturday we went to get her vaccines and she's been having diarrhea, she's been super sleepy and not active much like she...

    Quick Question - Distemper

    I'm very sorry, but I'm in a bit of a rush and don't have a lot of time to research this right now so I thought it might be best to simply ask the question to see if I could get a quick question.

He got his last set of fiv and luek. shots on wednesday so I am not sure if its related. But the shot was in his hip on that side, not his armpit. He is only 16 weeks old...

    Leukemia Vaccination?

    I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding vaccinations. I've already stopped giving the Rabies vaccine because it's unnecessary with both of the babies being inside only. But I was wondering if I should continue to get other vaccines, like the booster and leukemia vaccination? What do...

    I know there has been a post on which vaccines to use and not use - but I am at work and in a hurry. Dinka is at the vet this morning for his neuter. The tech said he has not had his leukemia vaccine. I told her that I would have to get back with her on that. Do I vaccinate?:Dizzy:
