Puppy Wellness Care Exams in San Antonio
Puppies require a few extra visits in their first few weeks and months of life to receive thorough examinations to monitor their growth and overall health. This allows the vet to catch and treat any potential health concerns early on before they fully develop. These nose-to-tail puppy wellness exams are the ideal time to ask any questions you have and to receive other pet services like puppy vaccinations, sterilization, or microchipping.
Puppy Vaccinations and Boosters
Vaccines are a vital part of canine health, with core vaccines like rabies and DHPP being the most essential to give your puppy. The DHPP vaccine protects dogs against:
Our San Antonio veterinarian may also recommend non-core vaccines such as the ‘kennel cough’ vaccination if you have multiple pets or plan to board your pet or have them professionally groomed. We will also likely advise you about heart worm prevention methods as a part of your wellness routine.
Spaying and Neutering for Puppies
It has been proven that animals who are sterilized early in life typically live longer. Furthermore, they also tend to wander less looking for mates and are freed from the possibility of enduring unwanted and potentially dangerous pregnancies. Many animals actually have a calmer demeanor after spaying or neutering, and our vet recommends taking this action as early as six weeks of age.
Pet Microchipping and Parasite Prevention
Getting your puppy microchipped increases the odds of their safe return home when lost by more than 50 percent. It is one of the most affordable in-office procedures available, and there is no pain experienced nor is any anesthesia necessary. Of course, good health is challenging with flea and tick infestations, and we offer an array of affordable pet care preventive solutions in our office.
