When I took the pup to the vet I was told that until she has all her shots, I should avoid areas that lots of dogs go to; especially dog parks, trails and PETsMART. When I was in PETsMART today, I ran into a gal with a 12 week old pup who (inadvertently) confirmed that this was definitely good advice.
I mentioned what my vet had told me about bringing the pup to the store until she’d had all her shots. The gal looked at me sideways and said, “My puppy’s only 12 weeks, isn’t she too young to get any shots?” Not only did her puppy not have any shots, but she hadn’t even taken it to the vet yet. Oy!
