Is $100 Enough To Bring To Get My Puppy’s Shots? I Have A Coupon For A Free Exam, But Not For The Shots.?

$100 should be sufficient for the first round of shots…
You do realize that the puppy will get 3 rounds of shots before it’s fully vaccinated right?
Where I live, each round was $68. The first round was taken care of by the breeder, so out of pocket cost for the remaining 2 rounds was $136

    $100 should be plenty if the exam is already free. Generally at 12 weeks old a puppy only needs one or two shots…a distemper booster and maybe a bordatella vaccine if she didn’t get that at her last visit. At that age, she is still too young for rabies. If Lyme is a big concern in your area, your vet might recommend that. You should also bring in a fecal sample for them to test even if they are going to do a deworming anyway because the medication that is used for prophylactic (preventative) wormings only covers some of the parasites that your puppy could have picked up. Usually fecals are about the same as the cost of a vaccine, although all vets have slightly different fees and your vet might charge a little more.

    Depends on where you live and how expensive your vet is – my vet was only 45.00 for shots including office visit. If it is twelve weeks old and all it’s shots are up to date – it should just need the 12 week and the 14 week booster – then at 16 weeks !st rabies shot – then you are done til the following year. Should be enough – at least for this time.

    Should definitely be enough. Vaccinations are not terribly expensive.
    I paid $75 overall for my cat’s vaccinations (and that included an office visit of about $40, so the vaccinations were actually around $30-40)
    Dog vaccinations shouldn’t be too much different in pricing.

    When I took my pit bull to get shots i think it cost me 70 bucks..
    Oh, and with my first pitbull I gave him his shots at home. you can buy them at a farm supply store and ask how to administer them

    Well the shots depend on where you live. I would call another vet and ask what they charge, to give yourself an idea.

    You should call and ask the vets. Different places have different prices.
