we had to get rid of our rottie due to circumstances beyond our control and our son was really sad so we got him a new little puppy last night.. she is 6 weeks old .. we are techincally supposed toget her registered with in her first week here but she cannot get registered until she gets her rabies shot,does any one know when she can get her shots and her deworming?
Most Vets, including myself, will not do the rabies vaccine prior to 12 weeks of age. I refuse to vaccinate some breeds, in particular giant breeds, until they are 1 year of age. Some breeds are predisposed to vaccine related HOD (a painful, non-correctable bone disorder). I also do not recommend Lepto in vaccines on dogs under 1 year unless you are in a Lepto epidemic area. Lepto is from icteric pigs. What are you registering puppy for, that the vaccine has to be done.
