Keeping Your Pet On A Stress Free Path To Wellness

Puppy evaluations:

Things to consider

1.  Vaccinate with a series of boosters to give your puppy immunity against contagious diseases.

2.  Sound nutrition is the foundation on which your puppy's health is built. Please feed the highest quality food available to you.

3. Protect your puppy against internal parasites. Follow CDC recommendations by deworming as a puppy, then repeat yearly. Have a stool exam at least once a year, more often if parasites have been a problem. 

4.  Protect against external parasites as well. Apply topical flea and tick prevention all year round.

5.  Provide your pet with the following items:

Food and water bowls


Portable Kennel

Collar and leash

I.D. Tags


Nail Clippers

6.  Invest in obedience training to keep your pet a happy and problem-free member of your family.

7.  Spend time while your puppy is young, getting them accustomed to different people and experiences:

Car rides

Socializing with other dogs

Interaction with children and strangers

Handle their feet, ears and mouth daily

Grooming and brushing

Leash walking
