Hot Shots: Pet Vaccinations
Customize vaccinations for your allergic dog
When Sandy Groom of Aurora, Illinois, flipped through her mail one afternoon, she paused to read a postcard from her veterinarian: Max, her 8-year-old terrier mix, was due for his annual shots. Glancing at Max who lay curled at her feet, Groom shook her head. The dog had been battling itchy skin and hot spots due to worsening seasonal allergies. Groom wondered whether booster shots might compromise his already weakened immune system. She put down the mail and dialed the vet.
