Re: Re: cats teeth and other ways to spend our money


Yes, a lot of talk has been made about pets getting cancer from too frequent
vaccinations.  It has been suggested that it is only necessary for an indoor
pets to get the rabies vac every 3 yrs.  Mine need them every year because
they are outdoors.  Also, the manufacturer, who of course does not agree,
will pay up to $1500 in medical care if the pet does contract a problem
related to vaccinations.
