Default Stupid Vet - grrrrrr - vent

So my aunt has a 14 year old pomeranian. Has never been super healthy. The vet she has been going to for the last 4 or 5 years drives me batty. Always pushing treatments, and test, and vaccinations, etc. Like last year, he convinced her a teeth cleaning HAD to be done. She was at the time not doing super well and 13. Her trachea collapsed and she was a mess when she got home. Vet however said she most of caught kennel cough in the neighborhood and thats what caused the problems. Thats just one example of this vet.

So yesterday....she goes in. Vet says she needs vaccinations. Vet gave her Rabies (will only give 1 year also), Bordatella, AND DHLPPC!!!!! All at the same time, all on a 14 year old dog with kidney issues (from tainted china treats) and who is on low dosages of phenobarb for some seizures. A dog who only goes outside to potty and walk around the total suburb neighborhood.

Sure enough, today she is a mess. Totally lethargic, wont eat or drink, muscle tremors, and tries to bite my aunt whenever she tries to pick her up. I went and picked up a couple homeopathics that should help (and last I heard she was doing a bit better, licked a bit of the medicine and the tremors stopped).

But seriously, this vet......tons of crap in the past but this is just beyond belief to me. Also considering my aunt is there monthly for glucosamine shots its not like he "thought" she wouldnt want to do extra trips.....and regardless of that there is NO WAY a 14 year old dog needs all of those.
