    Bella is 12 almost weeks old. On her vaccination card she has all the boxes ticked except rabies. When would this be due? Can she go out for walks now and mix with other dogs? Would she be due any boosters soon?
    How often can she be treated for worms and fleas?
    She is scratching but i can't see any fleas - any ideas?

    I am new at all this so any info, no matter how small, would be great! :)

    Are you in the UK? If so and you are not planning on taking her abroad with you you won't need the rabies shot:D

    I believe fleas are monthly and worms are 3 monthly but check the instructions of whatever you use.

    What breed of dog is she?
    You need to treat for fleas monthly and worms is usually 3 monthly. has she had her full injections now, if so about a week to ten days after the last one she can go out for walks. remember to limit the time you walk her as she is only 12 weeks old.
    I get Holly's flea and worm treatment from the vet.

    Scratching can sometimes be a sign that the pup is nervous. Our boy was a bit scratchy when we first got him (rescue pup though) but soon stopped it after he felt more secure. No fleas or anything there.
