There is a canine health record you can download from: www.ofice1000.com. I handed this to all of the owners of the puppies from the litter. The sheet will tell you when they need to have what shot as well as gives you a place to record the shots. I found it by doing an internet search for canine health record. Hope this helps.

My girl was fixed at 5 months old and the vet said the earlier the better!!
I think inbetween 5 and 6 months your dog should be fixed and spayed.
My girl is almost a yr now and due for her next set of shots!
good luck to u

When my dog was a puppy she had a DHLPPC which is a combination vaccine against distemper, parvo, etc, and 2 boosters before she was 6 months old and then an annual booster. She got her first rabies vaccine when she was 5 months old. Your vet will tell you specifically which vaccines your puppy needs. They will not harm the puppies. I believe they can be spayed/neutered at 5-6 months. I have been told spaying should be done before the first heat cycle. My dog was 8 months old when she was spayed.

I believe the pet has to be at least six months old, healthy, and not underweight to be spayed or neutered. There is a series of shots, so you should ask your vet.

All good questions and I'd ask your vet. I have always had my dogs neutered/spayed by six months old.
