We just brought home a 10 week puppy from the humane society. She is very healthy and they fixed her already. Is it ok to wait to go to the vet till she needs her rabies shot or does she need a check up right off. We are to far away from the vet they recomend. ( a free visit) So we would take her to our own vet ( this would cost us). She has had one puppy shot and is due for another Dec. 24th. But we give those ourselves. We also have wormer that we bought at the vet for our other dogs. The wormer is by weight, so it is good for puppies. I was suprised to see in another thread that rabies shots should wait till 6 monthes of age. I am sure we don't want to wait till then to have a healthy baby check up. But I don't want to run up vet bills for no reason.
