    Default SM and annual injection?

    Sophie is due again (actually overdue) for annual vacination against some of those dreaded deseases, I thougth I read on here once there is a preferred spot to have them injected when they have SM. Could someone please refresh my memory on this?

    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?
