Our pets are like family. We see ourselves in them.
We celebrate characteristics in our cats and dogs
that we think we’ve bestowed upon them, such as your
cat’s love of your favorite blanket or your dog’s
ability to know when somebody needs a little extra
love and attention

Come see for yourself!
We want you to compare and judge our dog
foods for yourself! Bring in the ingredient list
from your bag of food and compare it to the
ingredients found in the foods at Nickel Plate
Mills. We guarantee that our foods have all of the
ingredients to look for and none of the ones to
avoid. We will be happy to help you find a food that
is healthier and better tasting for your dog!
MINIMAL VACCINE USE
W. Jean Dodds, DVM
938 Stanford Street
Santa Monica, CA 90403
Note: The following vaccine protocol is offered for those dogs where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable. The schedule is one I recommend and should not be interpreted to mean that other protocols recommended by a veterinarian would be less satisfactory. It's a matter of professional judgment and choice.
|Age of Pups
|9 - 10 weeks
||Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Intervet
Progard Puppy DPV)

Perform vaccine antibody titers for panleukopenia virus every three years thereafter, or more often, if desired. Vaccinate for rabies virus according to the law, except where circumstances indicate that a written waiver needs to be obtained from the primary care veterinarian. In that case, a rabies antibody titer can also be performed to accompany the waiver request. See
