Yearly vaccines necessary?

I brought my one year 3 month Beagle mix to the vet for her annual heartworm test and refill of meds and also for the Frontline supply.

The test, the year supply of Heartworm tablets, and 7 months worth of Frontline was about $225...and on top of that they told me that she is due for her yearly vaccines which need to be done each and every year.

I thought vaccines were only required during the dog's first year?

And does that sound a lot for medications?

The Heartworm was about $120 (one year) and the Frontline was about $75 for 7 months...and they said you need to test yearly for Heartworm even though she's on the meds..

We also just get the rabies, heartworm check, and bordetella. Titer the rest.

pamperedpups.....how do you prevent heartworms? I once had a irish setter that we missed giving the preventive for a few months because of a lay off (still no excuse, and we were young) and she got heartworm and we hand to do the treatment with her.
Thank-You for the link for the lyme disease.....:)
I was just showing my DH our state/county.....and I passed it on, too....Thanks again!!
