Visiting a Vet For the First Time With a New Puppy

Wednesday, August 5, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

When 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.
