Puppy Wellness

Our puppy wellness program is designed to help get your puppy on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, and socialization.

Schedule your puppy for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will ensure your new dog is protected against rabies, distemper, and parvovirus, among other diseases. Your puppy must also be tested and treated for parasites, which are extremely common in young dogs.

Vet examining puppy
Most puppies have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms). Puppies need to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite that can be transmitted from pets to people. Ensuring your puppy is treated correctly can protect your entire family from these and other parasites.
