Default Feeling so happy!

We had an appt. w/a new (to us) vet in Vienna at 5:00 today to get a rabies shot for Kitzel so he could travel back to the US in a couple of weeks as international guidelines state a new shot every year---although he had the 3 yr shot last time around that is no where near expired. We ordered per telephone a special shot that he has had w/out incident---arrived on schedule & waited until we were in the "inner office" when I told the vet our situation. I told her I am happy to pay for the vaccine & I will abide by her wishes but would prefer that she put the stamps in the passport for Kitzel, date them & "toss" the vaccine! She, surprisingly, agreed w/us & was very accommodating!!!! I am sworn to secrecy! Now we can travel w/out any fear & he was so happy to leave w/out a shot! Sure I had to pay & glady did so! It doesn't hurt to ask.

Great that the vet was so accommodating. Sounds like she really understood where you were coming from and put the dog first. Hope you have a wonderful trip!

Kitzi is 8 now & has pretty much had a rabies shot since he was born---he is showing signs of age w/his ever apparent limp, but he is a trooper! We could have done it w/out a lot of anxiety but I did not want to risk it if I didn't have to. Now w/Lisi it is a completely different story---another rabies or any kind of vaccine could end her life quickly---so I make sure that doesn't happen however I can. Sometimes in life we find "grace" and it is a beautiful thing!

Sandi - that's wonderful. The vet definitely put Kitzi at the center of her judgment. I had no idea you had to get the shot yearly to travel abroad. Kind of sucks since most people get the 3 year shot. Wish they'd keep up with the times and change that!

She agreed that it is a crazy rule! Kitzi was so happy to get out of that office w/out any treatment---he jumped like a little mountain goat on the way home.
