Congratulations on your new puppy!
Our Puppy Wellness Program is designed to ensure your puppy is strong and healthy and will help set the foundation for your puppy’s long-term health.
The first two to six months are a critical period in your puppy’s development. Puppies have weaker immune systems than adults and, as a result, are more susceptible to infection from diseases and parasites.
Just as with human babies, puppies need to see their veterinarian on a more frequent schedule than do adult pets.
Puppies need a series of vaccinations given 3-4 weeks apart, between the ages of 8 and 16 weeks. We will make sure your new dog is protected against rabies, distemper, and parvovirus, among other diseases.
Whether your puppy was purchased from a breeder, adopted from a rescue group, or acquired from a friend or family member, puppies should get a physical on their first visit.
Please bring a written record of any medical or vaccination history you received on your first visit. We will also check the puppy for intestinal parasites, fleas, ear mites, and more. If possible, please bring a stool sample on your first visit to make this process easier.
We will also discuss housebreaking, training, grooming, feeding, heartworm prevention, and spaying or neutering.
We will happily work with you to provide you and your family the support and tools necessary to help your puppy grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, and socialization.
