If you really want your dog to remain healthy, you have to vaccinate it appropriately. Dogs are susceptible to a wide range of diseases, some of which are highly fatal. Therefore it is imperative to protecting your dog against these conditions by giving her the right vaccination. However, not everybody can vaccinate a dog. In fact, it is advisable that you hire vaccination services from a qualified veterinarian if you do not have the required expertise to do it. But this can be rather expensive especially since some of these vaccinations are supposed to be done frequently. The best thing therefore is to learn a few useful tips on how to vaccinate a dog.
Although you may be a bit nervous at first, you will be accustomed to it sooner than you imagine. Most dog vaccines are provided under the skin above the shoulder. The good thing is that there are numerous websites that offer tutorials on how to give dog vaccinations. Some of these sites even provide videos on the same. So it is easy for you to learn the important steps that you need to follow. Another important thing that you need to take into account is the type of vaccine you give the dog. If you are not careful, you may end up giving the wrong vaccine to your dog. So you should take time to research on the appropriate vaccines.
Before you inject the dog, ensure that the needle is properly tightened on the syringe. Also, ensure that the liquid in the syringe is thoroughly mixed by shaking it for some time before you inject the dog. It is important to ensure that the amount you draw from the vial is the appropriate one for your dog. Hold the dog tight when you are injecting it to prevent movement which can cause the needle to break in the dog.03.6.13

In this last part of my little “Connecting With Your Labrador Puppy” series I will show you what you need to do when your Labrador, as a puppy or as an adult hurts himself in whatever way. Not knowing what the right thing to do in this type of situation can lead to traumatic experiences for your dog or even worse, to a great amount of aggressiveness towards you for no apparent reason. I will give you an example so that you understand this concept better. I’m warning you now, do not disregard this despite the fact that it is a little counter intuitive.
So the best example is when you take your dog to the vet to have him vaccinated. How does your dog behave in this situation? I would be willing to bet that 90% of dogs hate going to the vet and when they realize that you are taking them there, they either become aggressive, either run the other way no matter what you tell them.
So why does this happen?
I can tell you that it’s not because of the pain caused by the needle going through their skin. And you may be like “Whaat?” The fact is that dogs care more about you, their leader than about physical pain. Are you beginning to see where I’m getting at? The reason why they don’t like it there is because every time you went there with him and he got his shot, you started freaking out and trying to calm him down when you were more scared than he was.
A dog that loves you so much doesn’t like to see you like that. It’s a state of mind that they can feel. Imagine now that feeling that you’re getting when you worry about someone or when you sincerely “feel their pain”. Your temperature starts rising and you’re almost starting to sweat. That is the feeling of losing control. There are certain chemicals that are running through are bodies at those times and dogs can feel them like we can feel pain. This is basically fear. A trained guard dog, or an aggressive dog that is not familiar with you, will start barking at you and even chasing you when they feel the fear in you. But when your dog feels the fear in his leader, he feels vulnerable.
I hope it makes sense to you, because it is such an important thing to understand if you want to be that best leader for your dog. As you were reading this you might have remembered a moment in your life when you started freaking out about your dog getting hurt. Because of the way he made you feel, he will avoid that situation forever.
So what is the right thing to do?
What you should do is very obvious and it’s something that you should apply in every situation. What you have to do is be a true leader, keep your act together. Don’t feel sorry for him, don’t cry, don’t go hug him. If it’s a minor injury let him be, if it’s something more serious, think of the best thing to do in that situation and do it. Don’t waste time whining.
If you want more proof, think about a homeless dog. It’s got a broken leg, half the teeth he should have and every step he makes sends a sting through his body. Does he whine? No. When you come to him and pet him, he starts wagging his tail like nothing ever happened.
Try it once and you will see. If your dog hurts himself somehow, just look at him. What he will do is he will make a high pitch sound the moment the hit happens. That’s mostly because of the scare. Then he will lick or smell that spot for a second or two and walk away immediately.
This is just the most obvious benefit but follow my tips and your Labrador puppy will look at going to the vet like it’s where you get the food and not the place that makes you weak.01.8.13
