My Belgian Malinois Wafel hurt his knee a couple weeks ago, I took him for x-rays and there was nothing definitive so I just gave him rest with hopes that it would heal. Fast forward a couple weeks and he is still showing signs of pain and loss of muscle tone on that leg.  I have known for quite a while that one of the vets at Sajo Farm Veterinary Hospital was a Malinois person so I called and within an hour they had received my x-rays from another vet, reviewed his records and had me in an exam room with Dr. Johnson.  He definitely showed during the exam more pain than he had previously. The exam was fairly quick and she gave me her recommendations for Wafel who is a Mobility Service Dog, yup, a mobility service dog who is having mobility problems.  What impressed me most was that we talked for quite a while about the breed and what we both do with them, she listened to all my concerns and I never felt rushed to vacate the exam room. It was great to feel that a vet would stay in the exam room and answer any question I had and was interested in me and my dog. Aside from Dr Johnson the rest of the staff that I interacted with were very personable and friendly. After this experience Wafel will definitely be seeing Dr Johnson in the future and I will recommend her and the Sajo Farm team to my clients especially the ones with working dogs.

I don’t do Lepto or Bordetella with my dog. Do your own research to keep your dog safe. Vets like Banfield who offer wellness plans will try to push every vaccine on you because its included with the price and your paying for it anyway, sootiness the cost is higher if you use a certain vaccine as in side affect. Some immunizations have side affects that are much worse than if they actually contracted the ailment. Research this and make an educated decision for yourself and know what your dogs risk factors are.
