Guys what shots besides the palvo and distemper{breeder gave} should I have to get? What about heartworm meds? And since my dog like to play in the yard, what should I do to keep fleas and ticks away...

Well, in a few weeks you will get the second distemper/parvovirus shot, and then a third 3-4 weeks after. Rabies is done typically around 3-4 months old. I wait till 6 months though just because I prefer to space out vaccines.

When your pup is 6 months you can get a heartworm test. My vet gives heartworm preventative starting at around 4 months simply because where I live fleas and ticks are EVERYWHERE!

Advantage II can be applied to puppies 8 weeks and older for flea/tick control. It is available at Petco, Petsmart and other similar stores.

You can get the kennel cough, Lyme, Lepto shots but they are not necessary. Talk to your vet and do some research on the different vaccines and decide which extra ones you'd like to do. :)
