vets don't want unvaccinated animals in their clinics because they are trying 
to protect against the spread of disease. I was at the vet a few months ago 
when someone brought in a puppy which clearly had Parvo & placed it on the 
floor! The vet quickly took car of the issue, but if others had been in there 
with unvaccinated animals it could have been a real problem.

It's really hard for me to understand why a vet wouldn't operate on a cat 
without vaccinations.  What if surgery is imminently required, does he wait 
until the cat is vaccinated, and then operate, even if it may be dangerous for 
the cat to wait?  This also means that a sick cat would have to be vaccinated, 
doesn't it?  Very odd! Natalie

My vet will not operate if the animal does not have vaccinations up to date and 
if tey are running a fevor, have open wounds, etc.  He treats the wounds, fevor 
first, then when they are healed, does surgery.
