🐶 Our puppy consultations are designed to give your new puppy a positive initial experience with veterinary care and give your puppy the best start in life. Our initial consultation with new puppies lasts 45 minutes to give us plenty of opportunity to discuss any questions you may have and make the experience as positive as possible for you and your puppy. The consultation being in your home takes away the risk of your puppy meeting unvaccinated animals at a veterinary practice and makes the visit less stressful for all involved.
🐶 We vaccinate all puppies against distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus and leptospirosis. Our vaccines are licensed to finish the primary course at 10 weeks of age, however in accordance with the WSAVA Vaccination Guideline Group we advise a final vaccination against distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus at 16 weeks of age or older as some puppies will not be fully protected before this. We offer a blood test 4 weeks after your puppy’s final vaccination to make sure that they are protected against the core diseases as expected. As long as they have responded appropriately, core vaccinations will then only be needed every 3 years as a maximum.
🐶 We recommend vaccination against kennel cough for all puppies as they are at higher risk of this disease when going to training classes and meeting lots of dogs for the first time.
🐶 We recommend vaccinating against the 4 available strains of leptospirosis, however we can offer a more basic vaccination against just the main 2 strains if requested.
🐶 Our puppy vaccination program includes regular weight checks, nutrition advice and parasite control advice to make sure your puppy is as healthy as possible as they grow into adulthood.
