WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN CARING FOR YOUR
                           NEW PUPPY

 Vaccines are usually done at three separate appointments at
   8, 12 and 16 weeks of age. Your puppy will receive core
   vaccines for Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza,
   Parvovirus, and Rabies. Non core vaccines will also be
   discussed and will be administered based on the lifestyle of
   your puppy and risk potential. All vaccines will need to be
   repeated when your puppy is one year of age. After this your
   Veterinarian will be customizing your pet’s vaccine and exam
   schedule to match your dog’s lifestyle.

 Deworming is an important step in maintaining your puppy’s
   health and preventing transmission of parasites to you and
   your family. Due to the high potential of your new puppy
   carrying parasites we follow the strategic deworming
   protocol developed by The Companion Animal Parasite Council
   (CAPC). Your puppy will be dewormed every two weeks until 3
   months of age, then once monthly until 6 months of age. We
   then recommend continuing strategic deworming once every
   three months to keep your pet parasite free.

 Fecal Analysis is recommended at your first puppy
   appointment and repeated at the time of spay/neuter. This
   will ensure we are not missing any parasites. We recommend
   repeating a fecal analysis yearly to ensure we are keeping
   your pet free of intestinal parasites and preventing
   transmission of parasites to other pets or to your family.
