  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all - my husband and I finally managed to luck into a puppy that we'll be bringing home in the coming weeks (yay!!). When we pick him up, he'll be 8 weeks old and will have only had one round of vaccinations organized by his breeder. We live in a major city in an apartment building downtown...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello! I was wondering what others here have chosen to do in my situation. I can have my pup vaccinated Monday at 17 weeks and two days old for rabies, or hold off until 6 months. My state doesn't have a requirement as to which is required. Two vets at my practice say always give rabies...

    I really don't want to give my pup anymore vaccines. Her titers all came back fine (no booster needed) but we skipped rabies since it's required by law. Thinking more about it, I really don't want to compromise her system anymore. My other option would be to find a TF mercury free version of the...
  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We are getting our first puppy June 11, at 8 weeks old.

My primary (part-time) job is welcoming of...

    I heard you can choose not to vaccinate your dog (just liek you wouldn't vaccinate against the flu all the time). Besides rabies, what are the optional vaccines?
  8. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I'm confused as to how many total shots pups are suppsoed to have. I went to a new vet today and she was concerned as to why my 11 week old hasn't had her 2nd set of the combo vaccine yet. 6 weeks (from breeder): DAPP + deworming 8 weeks (when I first got her): Lepto and Bortatella only +...
