Our puppy wellness program is designed to offer your new puppy all the benefits of veterinary services available to him / or her from 6 weeks of age to 16 weeks of age. Included in this service is a series of examinations where you and the veterinarian will discuss many aspects of care including such topics as nutrition, dental care, and behaviour. For your first visit with your puppy our veterinarians schedule extra time to ensure all of your health and training questions are answered. In addition, your puppy will receive a series of health-protecting vaccinations. You will be asked to bring a stool sample from your puppy to be tested microscopically for parasites or “worms”. Parasites can cause gastrointestinal signs such as vomiting and / or diarrhea and can be a serious health concern for both your puppy and people if left untreated. Performing a fecal test will allow us to treat your puppy accordingly. Although some worms are visible to the naked eye, most worm burdens are diagnosed by examining the stool of your puppy microscopically. We know with a new puppy you may have many questions. We welcome you to call us anytime and look forward to a long and caring relationship with your pet!
