Another distemper?

Eddies

Eddies a ham!
Eddie had his shots, was weighed, & had a good vet report but the vet wants to give an extra distemper; The vet said he would feel better knowing Eddie is better protected; how many are normal & why should he get yet another one? As a nurse I know giving babies extra Flu shots won't increase the protection of the original set of shots/ Eddie has not missed his vaccination dates...

Ack. What is it with all the spider haters around here? There is a group here who suggested all sorts of violent means to send my black widow to the Rainbow Bridge. They would probably argue that spiders go to the Sooty Web rather than the Bridge. As long as she keeps eating the earwigs in my garden, she is welcome to stay. Now earwigs, that's an icky bug I have no issues squishing.

As long as Eddie is over 12 weeks old and has had at least two vaccinations, I would not worry about giving him a third. If he's only had one then he definitely needs a booster.

I'm fine with spiders (well there was that one in Africa that was over a foot long and creeped me out a bit) but I'm with you on earwigs - ugly, icky buggers!

A foot long spider!? You could put a saddle on that thing and go for a ride.
