  1. Rabies - what age for first vaccination?

    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...
  2. Has anyone gotten a rabies vaccine booster exemption?

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    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.

  6. What is a puppy's vaccination schedule?

    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 +...
