New Puppy

My new puppy is coming in for an appointment what can I expect?

Puppies come in several times over the first 6 months for a series of vaccines and exams. Depending on your puppy’s age, the appointments can vary slightly.

At 8 weeks

– A complete exam (nose to tail) to be sure everything looks, feels, and sounds the way it’s supposed to
– Weight check
– A fecal analysis to check for any intestinal parasites
– Begin a Distemper (DHPP) Vaccine series (1st of 3)
– Discuss any questions or concerns, including general puppy care and training
– Dispense Interceptor for heartworm prevention
– Dispense Vectra 3D for flea and tick prevention
– Begin de-worming protocol

At 12 weeks

– A complete exam: It is important to have a full exam every four weeks as our puppies grow because the body is growing and developing so rapidly a concern may arise in a short period of time.
– Weight check
– Distemper (DHPP) Vaccine (2nd of 3)
