Our Services Offered with New Puppy Evaluations

Comprehensive Physical Examination

Our veterinarians thoroughly examine your puppy, assessing their body condition, coat, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and overall demeanor. This evaluation helps us identify any signs of illness or developmental abnormalities.

Vaccination Consultation

We discuss your puppy’s vaccination needs based on age, breed, lifestyle, and risk factors. This allows us to develop a customized vaccination schedule to protect your puppy against common infectious diseases like distemper, parvovirus, and rabies.

Parasite Screening and Prevention

We perform a fecal examination to check for intestinal parasites and recommend appropriate deworming medications. Additionally, we discuss the importance of year-round parasite prevention, including flea, tick, and heartworm prevention, to keep your puppy healthy and parasite-free.

Nutritional Guidance

Proper nutrition is crucial for your puppy’s growth and development. We guide you in selecting a high-quality diet tailored to your puppy’s age, breed, and nutritional needs. Our team will also discuss feeding schedules, portion sizes, and appropriate treats.
