Many veterinarians finish a puppy's first vaccinations with a reminder to come back at six months for yet another shot. You're probably wondering if this is really necessary or if the vet just wants to finance a lavish lifestyle. The truth is that while Parvo shots really can use a six month booster if your dog is exposed to a lot of other dogs, vets are usually trying to get you to come in with your puppy. Instead of lining their pockets, though, they are hoping to give your dog another check up before it reaches adult hood.
