Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • My dog ​​is getting aggressive. I was told that there is a vaccine that helps soothe or put her back to normal. Is it true?

    There is not a vaccine that can help with aggressiveness. However, there are some medications and other treatments that can help.

    I recommend that you take her to see your veterinarian. They can examine her and make sure that there is not an underlying medical cause for her aggressiveness. If there is an underlying medical cause then treating that will often take care of the issue. If there is not an underlying medical cause your veterinarian can recommend a behavior modification treatment plan that is specific to her.
