Anything And Everything I Can Learn...
We made the decision to add a beautiful Australian Shepherd boy to our family and will have him the first week of February. Will be 8 weeks old, AKC, tail docked (which I would have preferred it to be intact but it was done before we found them) dew claws removed, will have first set of shots, vet checked, health certificate, etc.
I have been staying up every night until the wee hours of the morning researching the breed, finding the best foods for him, training myself on how to properly train a dog and basically learning everything I can. But what I would like to know more about is medical wise.
I will obviously take him to my vet to figure it all out when he's here, but I'm impatient and want to know now. :)
What is the vaccination schedule we should go by, when should we have him neutered, what are the best flea/tick meds (Ive always used Advantage but seen someone said something about seizures..?)
I just want to know as much as possible to make sure we do everything right. Ive got the giving him lots of love and attention down tho! Can't wait til our little man is here!! Sorry it was so long. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
