Why didn’t my vet tell me to get a Bordatella
vaccination and/or a fecal exam?

For dogs that aren’t engaged with other dogs on a regular basis, like at the dog park or dog day care, a fecal exam is not necessary. Most vets will ask owners if they plan to take their dog(s) to daycare or parks and plan vaccinations accordingly. If you pooch is mostly with you in your home, goes out to play and take the occasional lease walk, you probably will only get baseline vaccinations; Rabies and DHLPP. Your dog will probably only requires a fecal exam if there is an on-going digestive issue.
