Vaccinations and preventative maintenance

I read so many different things on this I am truly having a hard time with what I should/should not do.

SO my questions to ALL would be in regards to yearly (after the first year shots)- what do you do with your dogs for monthly or yearly PM? I know some states vary this question in regards to rabies.

Also what do you use if anything for a heart worm medication and fleas?

I hear of the downside in some of this now with cancers etc and it concerns me, AS Well how do the Vets feel about these things? I know when I mention breeder mine rolls his eyes, just being honest and it can be hard at times to get the questions answered that I want so I am learning to change my delivery on that because I respect and have learned a lot from breeders and many on here.

After the first year booster, I follow the law on the rabies and I might revaccinate everything at three years (or I might not depending on what the risk factors are for the particular dog and my lifestyle at the time). After that we are done. Bordatella as needed. If showing a dog I used to get the bordatella once a year. Heartworm monthly. Flea meds only needed if you live somewhere there are fleas. Different stuff works different ways depending on the local fleas.
