Hello, I have a 10 week old chihuahua female and my question is ...is it time for her shots and what shots are needed now. I know that I should get her a Parvo shot at a clinic but what others are necessary right now. I know that they sell a combo shot for puppy's at Wall-greens for about $15 dollars. Is that something that I should buy and do it myself? Thanks.
