Puppy Vet Care
Congratulations on your new puppy!
At Giles County Animal Hospital, our veterinarians cannot wait to meet your new puppy! We are eager to make sure that your pup has everything he or she needs for his or her first few months of life with you.
Because a puppy’s immune system is still developing, it is important that they are protected against diseases and illnesses they are vulnerable to—which is why our veterinarians create a unique vaccination plan just for your puppy! Taking into account their breed, size, lifestyle and environment, and current health, our veterinarians will create a preventative health plan that will keep your puppy happy and healthy from nose to tail!
Puppy Care at Giles County Animal Hospital includes:
- Behavioral and housetraining recommendations
- Comprehensive wellness exam
- Customized vaccination and preventative health plan
- Dietary and nutritional recommendations
- Flea and tick control
- Parasite and heartworm prevention
Your puppy’s wellness exam is a great time to ask your veterinarian any questions you may have regarding the health and behavior of your pup. Our veterinarians are well-versed in things including diet and exercise, behavioral issues, housetraining, spay/neuter, and much, much more! Their top priority is always the health and wellbeing of your family pet!
Preparing for your puppy’s first visit
For the first exam, we suggest that you bring any health information from the seller, breeder, or shelter from which should include a history of prior vaccinations and deworming. We also ask that you bring a fresh stool sample, and bring your puppy on a leash or in a secure carrier.
**It is important that you continue to feed your puppy what he or she was given at the pet store or shelter. You and your veterinarian can discuss your puppy’s future nutritional needs during your pup’s first visit.**
Please call us today with any questions or concerns regarding your puppy’s health and behavior, or to schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians.
