I strongly advise all dog owners, not only V owners to seek out a reputable vet or vets when traveling to a remote site for visitation, hunting and the like. Our beautiful Vizsla, Brandi, was hit by a car during the Thanksgiving holiday in a somewhat remote Missouri town. Despite seemingly minor external injuries, I cannot speak of internal maladies, Brandi died of shock from the accident. We were unable to locate a vet within a 50 mike radius. When we finally did, and upon a 40 minute car ride, Brandi passed away at the animal hospital.
I have seen similar reminders to dog owners in several outdoor magazines, that is, to be sure to locate a vet in a remote location and ascertain his expected whereabouts during your stay. I must say that we will never travel with our new Vizsla without doing so and I wholeheartedly encourage all viewers of this message to take note!
Our Brandi was a special dog, with an exceptional temperament, an outstanding ability to hunt pheasants and was truly a joy to be with.
