Was out running my shorthair after work this evening just before dark. I heard a yelp and looked ahead about 75 yards and saw the dog jump back from something that was up against a big tree in some brush. Soon dawned on me that it was a ****. There appeared to be something seriously wrong with this **** as he had a hard time standing, or even moving much at all. First of all a raccoon out in the dead of winter in Minnesota tells me there is something wrong with it. It didn't appear to have any broken limbs just could not keep itself righted very long and would roll over on its side every now and then. I didn't see any wounds on the dog but I went and called the vet just to make sure. They told me that he is up to date with his rabie shots and that any other diseases it might have should not affect him from a bite. They said with humans there could be a problem, but not dogs that have had there vaccinations. Anyway I went back out and dispatched the **** just in case I wanted to have it tested, which would cost $75 - $100 if I so choose. My question is, do I have any reason to question the Vet on this. ?
