January is a cold month here in Arkansas and Findell Kennels is keeping it warm with long walks on three acres, running through the snow where possible and digging up moles. These are the most fun things to do.
January is also the time for all yearly shots. I still believe in giving yearly shots. There are a lot of people and breeders who are doing titers to check for the residuals of previous shots, however, I have not had problems with diseases and so why would I change something that works.
It's winter and it's cold so we are doing a good cleaning of parasites in the yard, and in the body. After a trip to the vet to ensure no one has heartworm, we will be doing a good worming to get rid of any parasites that might be hiding out inside our babies. Although we worm monthly during the summer, during the winter we skip a few months and give the bodies a rest from chemicals.
