Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, it is cheaper often to get just the needed shots but often vets have a "puppy package" which includes basic shots,flea medication as well as a couple other company sponsored products. Ours was around $65 but of course it depends on the vet.
(Be sure you find out exactly what kind of shots your pup has already been given(write it down & take it with you) so your vet gives only the needed shot.)
We found this package very helpful and the confidence that the dog was given a good start in life was a comfort too.
This is a really good site that actually explains what dogs need and why.
