The Value of Your Puppy’s Preventive Exam
A puppy’s immune system is still developing, which makes them more vulnerable to illness. This is why your puppy needs to have their first preventive exam as soon as possible.

Your puppy’s first exam will include:

  • A comprehensive physical examination
  • Intestinal parasite screening
  • A customized vaccination program
  • Flea, heartworm, and tick prevention and treatment
  • Behavior and house-training advice
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Puppy vaccinations

Our veterinarian will create a tailored vaccine schedule that will address your puppy’s needs and lifestyle. We do not believe in unnecessary vaccination, so we will choose only those vaccines that your individual puppy needs. This method will protect your new puppy from any diseases he or she is likely to contract. There are many diseases that are preventable through the use of vaccines, so it is important to create an individualized protocol early in life to protect both your puppy and your family.

Microchips for Your Dog
Just as vaccines protect your pet from disease and illness, microchips help keep your puppy safe if they are lost or stolen. The unique identifier in your pet’s microchip will help bring them home safely, providing shelters and animal hospitals with your contact information to reunite you with your pet.

Your Puppy’s First Visit
In preparation for your puppy’s first care visit with us, it is helpful to bring the health information provided to you by the seller or shelter. We also ask that you bring a fresh stool sample and bring your puppy on a leash or in a secure carrier.
