Puppy Care at DVAH

Puppy Wellness Care Is Important!

Canine Medicine

Do you have a new puppy? Congratulations on the new addition to your family! We can’t wait to meet them!

To ensure your new pet gets off to a healthy start one of the first things you should do is to bring them in to see us for a puppy wellness exam.

The Puppy Wellness Exam:

  • Your puppy will receive a full “nose-to-tail” physical examination. We will look for any signs of illness and make sure that your new pet is in good health.
  • Vaccinations and deworming as needed.
  • We will discuss the proper nutrition for your puppy.
  • Discuss with you the benefits and optimal timing of spaying or neutering your pet
  • Discuss at home dental care for your pet.
  • We will answer all of your questions regarding parasite protection, and overall health and touch on behavior, training, and grooming.

Please bring any information given to you by the breeder or shelter to your puppy’s first exam. This information should include a previous history of vaccines and deworming and any other health issues treated. Please bring a fresh stool sample to your exam.

Vaccines and Your Puppy

We believe in designing a personalized vaccine protocol for each puppy to maximize the protection against any diseases your puppy is likely to be exposed to. There are many diseases that are preventable through the judicious use of vaccines, so it is important to vaccinate your puppy against the diseases to which he or she may be exposed.

We welcome your questions and look forward to addressing any concerns you may have. The more educated you are about your puppy, the better you will be able to care for him or her, so we strive to offer you all the support you need.
