Royal Oak Pet Clinic
Your new puppy should visit a veterinarian as soon as possible. The initial visit will include a thorough physical examination to determine your puppy’s state of health. Dr. Chambers will check for external parasites (fleas, ticks, lice, ear mites) and for internal parasites (tapeworm, roundworm). Initial vaccinations will be administered and you will discuss the types of vaccinations your puppy needs, when they should be scheduled and receive advice about when your puppy should be spayed or neutered. This first health check will give your veterinarian the information she needs to advise you on your puppy’s diet and care.
