Veterinary Services | new puppy
Congratulations on your new Puppy!
We just can't wait to meet the newest addition to your family. Please bring your new puppy in as soon as possible after you bring him/her home. It is important to your Puppy's long term health that we examine your puppy to identify any potential health issues early on. We will answer your questions on caring for your puppy long-term, including food and nutrition questions, vaccinations, other health topics and behavioral issues. Your puppy's diet can make all the difference in his future health and well-being. Before you decide on a puppy food, talk to us. There are so many choices available and we want you to be able to choose the right food for your Puppy.
What to bring with you:
- The completed new client form

The initial exam will include:
- Complete physical exam
