Dogs are great pets, and bringing a new puppy into your home can be a very rewarding and fun time. Below are some notes to help you keep your puppy healthy and happy.
Vaccination will protect your pup from Distemper, Canine Infectious Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza and Bordetella by stimulating its immune system to produce antibodies against these nasty diseases. Treatment for these diseases is expensive and not always successful.
A microchip can be a lifesaver – it is the only way to contact you should your dog become lost and is presented to a vet or the pound. Please make sure you keep your details up to date with council.
An alternative to the Proheart® injection is monthly tablets for heartworm prevention.
Puppy Preschool is a fun way to socialise your pup and also begin some basic training to help avoid behaviour problems in the future.
