New Puppy

New Puppy

Owning a new puppy can be a very exciting(and busy!) time for pet owners. There are some crucial health care measures that need to be taken to ensure your new puppy gets the best start in life.

Puppies need a balanced, premium puppy food. Puppies grow and develop rapidly and have very different nutritional requirements to adult dogs. For example, puppies require additional calcium and energy to facilitate proper growth of bones and muscles, this ratio of calcium and energy can be different for small breeds to large breeds. It’s essential that you discuss the best nutritional plan for your puppy with a trained veterinary professional.

Parasite control is also very important for puppies as they are more likely to be carrying gastrointestinal worms at this stage in their life. An all wormer tablet should be given every 2 weeks until 12 weeks of age, every month until 6 months of age and then every 3 months for life. Heartworm prevention is even more important – the best way to prevent heart worm is with injectable medication administered by your vet, this removes the possibility of forgetting to give a dose, one missed monthly heartworm dose can result in heartworm infection. Tick prevention on the Northern Beaches is a must. The newer oral tick preventatives and tick collars are highly effective and very safe. Most of these products also prevent fleas for extended periods.

Vaccinations are also imperative to prevent deadly infectious diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis and infectious canine cough. During the vaccination consultation the veterinarian will also complete a full physical examination to ensure your puppy is healthy and fit for vaccination.
