A puppy shots timeline is the same as a puppy's vaccination schedule for the whole year. A professional and licensed veterinarian can provide a vaccination schedule for the whole year. Each veterinarian may recommend a slightly different schedule based on the puppy's health condition and risk factors.

Aside from the regular vaccination schedule, a puppy shots timeline may also include a variety of tests and medications for the puppy's first year. These may include a fecal test, a heartworm test and prevention medications. Some veterinarians may include the cost of each test and vaccinations per the request of the owner or have it prepared for the client in advance.
