Puppy Care & Vaccinations

Congratulations on your new puppy! We can't wait to meet your new family member.

It is important to have your new puppy examined by one of our veterinarians to make sure they are healthy and to vaccinate your puppy against serious, preventable diseases. Our veterinarians will make sure they receive a good healthy start in life through comprehensive puppy exams, vaccinations, parasite protection, nutrition and exercise advice.

Your puppy's first wellness exam includes a thorough “nose to tail” physical exam and allows us to establish an individualized wellness plan for your puppy going forward. Your puppy’s first wellness exam includes the following beneficial components:

  • Comprehensive physical exam.
  • Intestinal parasite screening
  • Intestinal parasite deworming
  • Development of a vaccination program based on your puppy’s lifestyle and exposure risk
  • Heartworm preventative recommendations
  • Recommendations for flea and tick prevention
  • Behavior and housetraining recommendations
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise and behavior guidance
  • Pet insurance recommendations

For your first puppy visit, we request that you bring the following:

  • Your puppy on a leash or in a dog carrier
  • All paperwork pertaining to the previous care of your puppy including all previous immunizations, deworming, medications and any veterinary records you may have. You may email these records to us as well.
  • Any questions you may have regarding your puppy’s health or behavior
  • A fresh stool sample (less than 12 hours old)
