Did they say why they had to shave?

No they didn't and I didn't ask. They were running behind and I had to get my son to a birthday party I didn't think to ask. But none of my other dogs have been shaved to be chipped but ive never chipped a dog this age.

This is something I struggle with being in the military and moving around .... It's hard to find drs and vets you trust 100%. This is my second vet in this area. The last one removed a lump off of Tazer. When I picked him up she never came to speak to me and when I asked they said she was busy. I grew up in a small town where the vet always talk to you after surgery and I expect that. So I was done. I like the new lady but have only been in there for routine checkup and the puppy.

You might not be doing exactly the same things he does, but, as long as he serves, the "FAMILY" serves!

Lady, I agree with you. Over the years, we've had quite a few military vets that weren't the best & I'd cringe when one of our fur babies had to be seen by the doc. The doc we had in VA was awesome with Maggie & Patch and so far the guy here in TX is great. Always talks to you, doesn't seem to rush you & if you need him to reexplain something, he does. We do have another vet off base though that we use for emergency's or when surgery is needed (had 2 vets like that in VA also). So I've been lucky here so far.

morgan is a year and a half. i'm thinking about getting her chipped. Mrs. Tpolley' work can do it for about $20~ with her discount. i keep hearing stories about dogs being kidnapped, especially boxers.

it would be nice if there was some way to get a smart phone to read a chip. that way if i'm at the dog park and find a dog with no owner i can scan it and possibly contact the owner.
