Care For Your New Puppy

Health

We cannot stress enough how very important it is for you to keep your puppy current on his/her vaccinations and away from other animals until AFTER the first three sets of vaccinations and rabies shots have been given.

Be sure to review the shot record we have provided as we vaccinate on schedule so be sure to see your veterinarian as soon as your baby comes home so they can continue the vaccination/protective measures and vaccinate for rabies as well.

Remember Other unvaccinated animals can carry and pass along fatal diseases to your puppy. Please be cautious with your new baby!

Parasites to prevent:

Your Veterinarian

Within a few days of taking your new puppy home, you should bring him to your vet for a general exam. Your vet can help identify any potential heath issues early on, and advise you on caring for your puppy long-term. This initial visit also opens the doors of communication with you and your vet. Over the course of your puppy's first six months, you will see a lot of your vet. This begins with vaccines and usually leads to spay or neuter. Typically, puppies should be spayed or neutered around six months of age.

Supplies

Your new puppy will need certain items from the very start. Most important items include

Some if these items can last as your puppy ages, but bear in mind that most of them will need to be replaced when your puppy grows. Collars may be adjustable to a certain point. A kennel can be purchased in a larger size for the future, but should be blocked off with boxes or other objects to make it the right size for the puppy.
