Our puppy wellness program is designed to offer your new puppy all the benefits of veterinary services available to him or her from 6 weeks of age to 16 weeks of age. Included in this service is a series of examinations and vaccinations including Canine Distemper, Parvovirus, Adenovirus-2 strains, Bordetella & Parainfluenza to prevent kennnel cough & Rabies. Initial vaccinations can be started at 6 weeks of age. A series of booster vaccinations are given at 9, 12 & 16 weeks of age. It is very important that your puppy be brought in for boosters at the correct time to maximize the protection that the vaccines will give your puppy.
We recommend deworming for the most common intestinal worm of puppies – roundworms. Roundworms can cause gastrointestinal signs such as vomiting and/or diarrhea. We recommend deworming every 2 weeks until 4 months of age.
There are other parasites that can cause similar symptoms and can even cause your puppy to become anemic (low red blood cells). Performing a fecal test will allow us to treat your puppy accordingly. Although some worms are visible to the naked eye, most worm burdens are diagnosed by examining the stool of your puppy microscopically.
At each visit your puppy will be given a complete physical exam. Nutritional requirements will be discussed. House training, handling & any behavioral issues will be discussed. We are very happy to answer any questions you may have.
One of the most important things you can do to insure your new puppy lives a long & healthy life is to begin proper dental care at an early age. Studies have proven good dental care throughout the life of your dog will result in your dog living on average 2 years longer than without good dental care.
We will clip your puppies nails.
We strongly recommend you consider purchasing pet insurance as there are board certified veterinary specialists available to perform unique specialized procedures should your pet unfortunately require such a procedure to save its life.
