    Hi,

    Its been a couple of days since scooby had his water injection and it seems to have given him some relief , his chest seems a bit clearer and he is not coughing as frequently , we are going to see how he gets on as for the moment he seems comfortable.....

    Scooby's annual vaccination is due this month and Iam tempted to tell them not to bother with him being so ill as I fear it might make things worse? Any advice?

    Thanks for all your ongoing support , it means alot to me and the little guy....

    Love

    I'm glad Scooby is still remaining comfortable. Bless him, he is such a little fighter.

    I really think it would be unwise to vaccinate a dog as frail as Scooby.

    I would not booster Scooby. My Ebony has got a heart murmer and I have not boostered her for the last 2 years. A blood test confirmed that she still has full immunity. I am lucky i got a good and honest vet. Most vets will push for the booster.

    I'm glad you decided not to vaccinate. It wouldn't be advisable in his condition, and there is much debate about over vaccinating. I'm sure if you had a titer you would find he still has coverage. I didn't renew vaccinations with my ill dog, and felt confident he was better off not.

    Hugs to you both, and praying you have a bit more quality time with your little love.

    My vet doesn't vaccinate my severly affected 9 year old SM dog. She feels that she's been through enough with her surgery, etc. Good decision with Scooby, the dog with 100 lives. He is amazing!

    Happy Scooby has gotten some relief and is feeling a little better. I agree with everyone else about not vaccinating. Sydney was due for his this year and both vet and cardiologist said it wasn't necessary for him anymore. Good luck and keep us posted-

    Default An update about Scooby

    Hi All,

    Sorry not been online much had kids at home for summer holidays and then not been well so just getting back to normal.........

    Scooby is still here (he is a miracle) , we have had a couple of times when he was coughing more so I had him to the vet and he said his chest was fine so we r just keeping him on the tablets hes on at the moment.

    He has been my constant companion and now the kids are back at school its just the two of us again which I love.....

    We dont look too far ahead but we r loving our time together right now......

    Love
    Sharon and Scooby
