Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I went to the vet when nala had an allergic reaction to something she ate. The vet said that her cloudy eye might be cataract and that could be a sign diabetes and that it will also requirr surgery and at he animal shelter which is county operated they may have lied about vaccinating her and it would be a good idea to do the shots again is most of this credible? Or was he trying to swindle me I'm looking out for nalas best interest and I don't know if I should go with it or not

Do you have documentation about the shots from the shelter? Sometimes all they give is rabies shots, but that depends on local standards they do.

DO not over vaccinate her - just get a titer test. Much safer for her,

Did he record these things? You may want to invest in pet insurance. I STRONGLY suggest looking into finding CERF clinics are dog shows in your area.

You don't have to be a show dog to get an exam:

I'd agree titer for vaccine coverage before you just jab her again. Do a blood test to confirm or disprove diabetes, you'll want to know if your dog has blood sugar issues and how to treat. Allergy test if haven't done one already, if she's on a food with grains I'd suggest that be a first change. Lastly, find a certified canine ophthalmologist to check the eyes.

Ditto on the pet insurance. Megan asked if he recorded these things because it would be pre-existing condition not covered by any pet insurance. They ask for all the back records for your pet.

Do you feel comfortable with your vet and do they get good reviews?

im sorry about all the bad news for Nala. If you can, I would try taking her to another vet just for a second opinion. It seems like that one is just guessing at the whole diabetes thing (but im no expert.) Maybe ask around for someone friends/coworkers use that they trust and is also not terribly expensive. I hope you get some good news soon!

are there any veterinary schools/colleges nearby? they have students and teachers in all areas of medicine to work on the dogs - and are usually less expensive. I live in Illinois and I drove to wisconsin for my girls serious medical issues. best of luck - waiting to hear good news.......
