Yes if you are going to go ahead with vaccinations, {or any injection} make sure the vet does it in the loose skin at the front of the thigh.

Discuss with your vet which vaccines you actually need - and the schedule, many now give them 3 yearly.

Also whether you should go ahead anyway - it says on the data sheet that vaccines should only be given to fit, health animals...

thanks for that
I find that the vets don't seem to know that much, only the specialists, is that the case where you are too?
