Yes. Someone mentioned rabies vaccine and I said I was pretty sure he hadn't had one because he was only 15 wks old when we got him.

I'm not sure where you live, but I would be getting that rabies shot ASAP...cause I know in my state (county) it is REQUIRED by law that any dog or cat 4 months or older HAS to have one

We're in NJ. I lived in NC when I was a teenager.

Same here. Don't get caught! Hopefully the vet will have some answers for you. Good luck.

We always had rabies done by 3 months but at puppy class they weren't required until 6 months.

At 5 months I'd have titers for Distemper and Parvo and if legally possible wait until 6+ months for Rabies.
If you have to have all, get them seperated by at least 2 weeks.
