PUPPY CHECK LIST
Our puppies are raised by responsible breeders, but we require the breeders to take the puppy to a licensed veterinarian for a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) which is a health comprehensive examination prior to traveling to you.
This health certification is inspected internally for any notes, concerns or questions.Once all the paperwork is in order we will contact you with the flight information or transit information.
We request that you take your puppy within (2) two working days to a veterinarian to
reconfirm the puppy’s health.
When you get a new puppy, one of the most important things to consider is your puppy’s first vet visit. This one trip can lay the foundation for great lifetime health! Here’s what you’ll need to know about your puppy’s first vet visit.
WHEN TO TAKE YOUR PUP FOR THEIR FIRST VISIT
Most puppies go home to their pet parents at around 8-12 weeks of age, and this is the perfect time for a first visit to the vet. Please do not wait and make sure to go within (2) days to confirm that the puppy is healthy.
Always remember to bring along the health certificate. Breeders start their pups’ vaccinations and deworming before sending them off to their new home, and if so, your veterinarian needs to know.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE FIRST VET VISIT
A lot takes place during your pup’s first visit to the vet, and if you aren’t prepared, some of it can seem confusing. Let’s take a look at what you should expect.
- Physical Examination:They will check your dog’s body, skin, coat, eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. They will also test your pup’s vision, hearing, and alertness.
- Vaccination:Fortunately, vaccinations are there to protect your pup.
- Fecal Exam and Deworming:
- Microchipping: A microchip is like an ID tag that lives inside of your dog’s body. It is about the size of a grain of rice and contains all of your pet’s information. If your pet is ever lost and returned to a shelter or vet’s office, the chip can be scanned and your pet safely returned to you. It’s great technology, and many veterinarians strongly recommend it. The cost is typically low and the procedure is simple — the chip is injected between your dog’s shoulder blades.
