Thanks for the link to "TAMU". I should always have that one available though.

I don't know enough to do their job (in general), and do take their feedback into account before making decisions. Suja

Which IMO is generally a very good idea. After all they are the ones that have gone to school.
I too prefer to take information gathered and then have a general discussion.
Around here many people can take the approach of
walking in the door requesting only this vaccine or that and refusing others.
But my comfort zone
forces me to want to talk about it. Just
as *if* I were diagnosed with cancer I would
want to educate myself and then talk in an educated manner about all of my options.

The TAMU protocol would "look better" if I could find the actual school site.
Some vets can be really old fashioned and I'm not sure what this particular one is like.

surprisingly, the old-fashioned ones are IME the least likely to question your decisions! that's from the perspective of having gone mostly to country vets, though.
I don't want her to think that I'm pulling this out my ass, 'cause they're much less likely to give you grief if they realize that you may have actually done research.

absolutely! not only is it a good idea to know what you're talking about, but the more you know ahead of time, the better advocate you'll be for your pet.
Generally speaking, I ask them what they think of something first, and have discussions based on their responses. I don't know enough to do their job (in general), and do take their feedback into account before making decisions.

i'm not suggesting you not talk it over with your vet and come to a mutual decision on it. it's obviously a good thing to talk to a new vet as much as possible so you can sound them out. what i mean is that, when i've done my research ahead of time and have simply asked for Procedure X as if i know what i'm talking about, i've not been challenged. AFAICT the vets i've gone to haven't had their feathers ruffled by my being up-front and decisive about what i want.

Here's something from IVIS, the International Veterinary Information Service: http://www.ivis.org/advances/Infect Dis Carmichael/schultz/chapter frm.asp?LA=1

Awesome! Thank you, Melanie.()

Suja, you can also get a very nice PDF version of that info by clicking on the "Print" link on that same page.

Q: Because it reverses the logical flow of conversation. A: Why is top posting frowned upon?
i'm not sure why you'd "need" it, as it's up to you whether or not your dog is vaccinated. i've yet to be second guessed by a vet on my vaccination choices, even for my old cats who get *no* vax.
I recently had to switch vets because of disagreements over vaccination schedules. We were supposed to get together and discuss the current research on vaccination, but never had time and finally I just gave up and started going to a different vet.

Who says the people that choose NOT to vaccinate are not educated in the matter?
Further vaccinations do get the vet more money,huh?
