Puppy’s First Visit To The Vet

Monday, November 2, 2015

puppyvetWhen you first get a puppy, you’ll need to take him in to the veterinarian for a proper exam and vaccination. Some puppy shots are administered in a series. If it’s a new vet, you’ll probably get to know him/her quite well during the initial period. After the initial series of shots, most healthy dogs only need to visit the veterinarian only once a year for their annual vaccinations and a brief checkup. Older dogs may need to get more frequent exams. It’s a good idea to ask about special geriatric screenings. Most veterinarians will recommend a bi annual visit. No matter what your dogs age is, any sudden changes in his behavior or eating habits should be reported to a veterinarian. Your treatment options are always better when you catch a problem early on. Always refer to your vet for pet medications. Never try to administer anything yourself. This will keep your new pet healthy and happy.
