  • Southern Illinois recommendations...

    Hello! We will be bringing our first Dane home in about 6 weeks and I am looking for a Dane savvy vet in Southern Illinois. The vet that we take our two labs to is very thorough with their care and we are happy with her but I get the feeling that she doesn't have much experience with Danes. She suggested spaying at 4-5 months!?!? Too early!!

    I have been asking all of our friends with dogs who they go to...several of our friends have Mastiffs....but none of them go to the same vet and have varied opinions of each others vet..

    Anyway, just looking for some suggestions and personal experience if anyone in my area is on here. Thanks!

    Can you be more specific than Southern IL? Are you close to Springfield?

      No, we are more south. I live in Murphysboro. Which is about 8 miles from Carbondale and 15 miles from Marion, Il.

            Emily,

            I live in Spfld. Surprisingly, I just learned that our long term veterinarian (Brewer Animal Hosp) is not a fan of GD. I find that disheartening.

            May I ask who your vet is?

            Thanx.

                I don't personally know of any vets down that way as I'm outside Chicago, but I was thinking to maybe post a question on the fb page of the rescue I volunteer with? We have volunteers and followers all over IN and IL (and elsewhere). I think we had a homecheck in your neck of the woods recently, your town name sounds very familiar.
