Veterinary Visits

Just like you, your puppy needs immunisations and regular visits to the doctor to maintain optimal health. Together, you and your veterinarian can provide your puppy with the best care for a long, healthy life. Your veterinarian is the best source of information for your puppy's health, so it is important to follow his or her recommendations to ensure a great start for a long, healthy life.

The sooner you visit the veterinarian, the better. Puppies should be vaccinated at an early age. Your veterinarian will start your puppy on a vaccination schedule and will advise you when boosters are necessary. Make sure your pet gets a regular veterinary checkup every six months or as recommended by your veterinarian.

When you take your puppy to the veterinarian, you should know what to expect. Some of the common diagnostic tests your veterinarian may want to perform include faecal examinations to check for internal parasites and blood tests to check for diseases. During the physical exam, your veterinarian will feel your puppy's abdomen, listen to the chest, check the condition of the coat, look in the ears for infection and ear mites, and inspect the mouth for tartar buildup or gum disease.
