How often do you take your puppy to the vet?

My puppy is 7 months old. She has all her shots as of now and the last time she was at the vet was last month when she was fixed. How often are they suppose to go... yearly?

She will have booster shots and an exam at around one year old.
She should see the Vet every year for a well check, heartworm test, etc. she will not need any of the major vaccines again till her 4th birthday. Unless you live in areas of Texas and California. They are back in the dark ages and insist on yearly rabies shots.
Any Vet that forces you to get vaccines yearly, other than rabies if legally required, should be replaced.

Some vaccines are done yearly and are not 'core' vaccines.
Lyme, Lepto, bordetella are not core and are usually done in the spring if you choose.
