puppies, shots?

How old do puppies have to be before you can worm them and start their shots?

  • They can give them a dewormer at 6 and 12 weeks as for rabies and parvo they usually wait until they are four months.

  • Actually if you buy wormer at Walmart, you can start deworming at 2 weeks.

    I was wondering on the other shots because I have a puppy and my pekepoo already had hers done... so when I call my vet at 9am I'll come back and letcha know

  • I bought my puppy from a a very good, professional breeder/trainer and she always has the vet give them shots at 8, 10 and 12 weeks and has them de-wormed at the 10 week visit. That way they only need a shot at 6 months and a booster and the Rabies shot at 1 year when they are neutered. After that they need a booster once a year for the 6-way and once every 3 years for the Rabies.
