A word about vaccinations: there is a school of thought out there that says Cavaliers with advanced MVD/CHD shouldn't get vaccine boosters. There is a chance of a reaction to the shot that could prove fatal or at least send me to the emergency room. I don't like the shots of course, but the county says I need a booster to renew my license. At least the county will accept a letter from Dr. Barrett exempting me.

Darcy, you make a very good point. As a general rule, no dog which is not in good health should be vaccinated. And, if you will excuse me for saying so, Darcy, since you have MVD, you are not in the best of health. Some states and counties accept letters from an unhealthy dog's vet to excuse the dog from having to be re-vaccinated for rabies. Hopefully, more unhealthy dogs will take advantage of these exceptions to otherwise manadatory vaccination laws.
