i was just after some personal opinions on this matter i will have to deal with. i'm bringing home a pup in 2 1/2 weeks time and it will be 8 weeks old by then. (big excited jump for joy !!!) as i have done with all other dogs, they get their vaccinations, then the booster once a year and also heartguard and worming and all that stuff.
my puppy will be living w/ my partners dog, Moto. now my partner has never given his dogs anything other than the puppy vaccinations. no annual ones, heartguard treatment or anything else. he's 1st dog lived to 14 and had a great life. Moto is 4 and completely healthy. (lots of good luck !!) it's obviously his personal choice but if it was me, i'd want to eliminate any risk that could make my dog sick. you'd be kicking yourself if you didn't right ? and then find out you lost your dog to something that could have been prevented.
so my questions is: when the pup comes home, is it okay for him to be w/ Moto ?? and i just keep them both out of public places until the pup is covered after his last vaccine ??? i'm just worried that maybe Moto could catch something from another dog and then pass it on ??
or should i push to tell my partner that Moto should take on a regular routine of heartguard/vaccinations etc. ? i'm even happy to pay for it.
what would you do ?
i just don't want to bring home my little fluffball and something go wrong. it would be heartbreaking !!!
thanks in advance !!
