Congratulations on your new puppy!
Whether this is your first puppy, first pet ever, or your a professional puppy owner, we are here to help you understand how to care for them. We want you to be able to understand their wants and needs. Alongside making sure they are full vaccinated and ready to play with other dogs at the park!
Schedule your puppy for their first exam as soon as possible. Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, they are susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases.
We can vaccinate your new dog against:
- Lyme disease
- Bordetella (kennel cough)
Some of these are elective, but others are core vaccines to make sure your puppy lives a long and healthy life.
Here at Beach Avenue Animal Hospital we also work with the best brand for flea and tick prevention. Learning about the importance of flea and tick prevention is an important step to owning a dog. So make sure you chat with the Doctor to learn more!
Most puppies have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms). It is important for puppies to be treated for roundworms. Not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your puppy is treated, you can keep your entire family safe from these and other parasites.
