You -WANT- to take your puppy to the vet? As in you haven't yet and the dog still shots and a check up?

For a puppy visit if you are getting all the shots and a routine check it its generally runs me around $110. I have seen some as low as $75.

Just a wellness check at my vet for my dogs when they were puppies was $27.50. Throw in a round of shots and he didn't charge the office visit fee but it was still $140. Fecal examine is $10.

If I went to a low cost clinic by me just to get heartworm I paid $54 per year per dog. My vet wanted $127 for a years worth of meds per dog. Nail trims are $9.00 for my good dogs and $22.00 for the ones that don't like their feet touched and needed 3 people plus myself to get them done.

If you need shots for your puppy and money is tight you can either go to Pet Vaccinations: Dog Vaccines, Cat Vaccines at Luv My Pet - Petco and find somewhere close to you. Or a lot of members administer the shots themselves by getting them from a feed store. I would try to stay away from the Lepto shot for your puppy. I heard bad things about it. Only shot you can't give him is a rabies shot. That has to be done by a vet.

WOW, is all I can say. Not trying to be a dick but that should be first hand knowledge, the peditrician and the vet are #1 and #2 in my speed dial on my cell, should be the same for any bully breed owner, from dog on dog accidents to taking a bad step while running, these dogs get hurt not often but they do.

HA see I'm not the only one going Bully.

Vet check up and Shots within a week, preferably within days of getting a pup. Dogs are like children they are expensive! Already put a couple grand into my 7month pup.

I agree with you here. Longest I have gone without a wellness check on a new puppy was 2 days. I never got a dog from an impulse decision. I knew when I would be getting him and always set up a vet appointment for either that day, if I got him in the morning, or the following day if I picked him up late afternoon or evening.

yup. kenyas vet is my best friend.. i call that woman more than anyone lol...

Drew, it shouldnt matter how much it cost, u need to shop around and find a vet u like anyway. also, like BBB said dog are like children. I have spent soooo much money on kenya, its crazy, and thats just the way it is. so prepare to give up alot of things and fork out the cash

Depends where you live, first wellness visit for shots i had in Central NJ, $400! (but included heartworm, flea prevention, and microchip)
Long Island NY- $250
Maryland- $150, and I brought my bully for demodex scrape, and that was included in the $150.

you know, when i got kenya, my vet wanted to charge an arm and a leg for the shots. luckily for me i have somethine in my area called VIP PET CLINIC its a mobile clinic that does only the vaccs/rabies... so i went thru them, payed 25bucks for each series and got her microchipped for $10... check and see if u have somethine like tha tin ur area...

. cute girl btw
