Vaccination Guidelines and Spring Cleaning

Since 2003, veterinarians and dog owners have been able to look to a set of guidelines to decide how often to vaccinate their canine patients – and their pets. Editor Susan Chaney reports on the most recently updated “AAHA Canine Vaccination Guidelines,” published in the September-October 2011 issue of the Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association. Find out what the experts in vaccines and immunology have recommended, and learn how the standard of care varies greatly from practice to practice.

Now that winter has finally released its grip throughout most of the U.S., kennel managers everywhere have begun their “spring cleaning” chores in earnest. In today’s DFR, Kayla Bertagnolli talks about some of the ways we can keep our dogs comfortable as the seasons change. It’s time to put away those winter accessories, change up the feeding schedule, and make a little room for that kiddie pool again.

Ronald D. Schultz, Ph.D., of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine Department of Pathobiological Sciences has been part of the collaborative effort to develop and update the guidelines from their beginnings. more

Transitioning Through the Seasons
By Kayla Bertagnolli
It’s that time of year again to do some spring cleaning and adjust our daily routines now that the days are getting longer, the sun is brighter, and the weather is heating up.
I think it’s safe to say that the snow is officially gone from most regions of the country. (Please tell me I didn’t just jinx us Utah folks!) Although the TV weather person can tell us one thing, we all know that Mother Nature can surprise us with plans of her own. In these cases we just have to go with the flow. more
