This is a grim reminder of why we all need to keep our pet vaccinations up to date. It doesn't have to be your pet that bites another animal or a human. A bite by another animal, in this case a coyote, can mean the difference between life and death for your pet because if you can't afford the expensive quarantine, your pet will have to be euthanized. So keep the date marked on your calendar. That way, if the reminder from your vet's office is lost in the mail, you will still know he or she is due for a booster.
We just had a similar case locally but we don't know what choice the pet owner made. You can read the news story here.
For those of you who use Blogger, we thought we would post this from The Real Blogger Status blog, in case any of you get an urge to change your blog name or email address and your Google account no longer recognizes you.
We would like to refer you to Life With Dogs' post today on Oliver Alert. It is traumatic to lose a pet and never know what happened to it. Oliver is still missing, but his disappearance is helping many other lost and found pets to be reunited with their family.
We hope you haven't forgotten what we look like. Jan is still hogging the computer and we only get crumbs. But we have some posts coming up whenever we can sneak some extra time to blog.
