Congratulations on your new puppy! Thank you for choosing us to help protect and care for your new addition to your family.
Our preventive programs are designed to help get your puppy started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behaviour, and socialization.
By scheduling your puppy’s exam as soon as possible we can discuss vaccine protocols and any concerns you may have. Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will vaccinate your new dog against rabies, distemper, and parvovirus, among other diseases. Your puppy will also need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young dogs.
Many puppies have intestinal parasites that may cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms). Some of these intestinal parasites, such as roundworms, can be transmitted to people. By ensuring that your puppy is treated, you can keep your entire family safe from these and other parasites.
We look forward to meeting your new puppy! Schedule your appointment today.
