“Dear PoPville,

We just got a new puppy this weekend- her name is Maggie and she’s an 8-week-old Goldendoodle. We are in love.

Of course two days after we get her home, I open PoPville and I see the rabies report. I’m kinda freaking out because we literally just got her this weekend and she still needs all of her puppy shots.

With all this in mind, first- am I overreacting? and second- does anyone have any recommendations of vets in or around DC that offer comprehensive puppy vaccinations and checkups for one price? I remember with our first dog, Scout, we paid close to $1000 for all the startup vet visits, and I’m trying to avoid that the second time around. And in light of all the recent rabies reports, I want to make sure I get all of this squared away as soon as possible so Maggie doesn’t get sick.”
