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.

Visit one of our hospitals with your new puppy for a FREE health checkup to ensure they have the best chance of settling into their new home smoothly. Our vets will conduct a full physical examination and discuss important health care measures to keep your new puppy healthy and happy.

Nutrition

Puppies need a balanced, premium quality puppy food.Puppies grow and develop rapidly and have very different nutritionalrequirements to adult dogs. For example, puppies require additional calcium andenergy to facilitate proper growth of bones and muscles, this ratio of calciumand energy can be different for small breeds to large breeds. It’s essentialthat you discuss the best nutritional plan for your puppy with a trainedveterinary professional. At Sydney Animal Hospitals, we are committed toproviding your puppy with the best nutrition available, following a free healthcheck your puppy will receive a FREE bag of Hill’s Science Diet Puppy Food totrial.

Parasite control

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 heartworm is with injectable medication administered by your vet, this removes the possibility of forgetting to give a dose as one missed monthly heartworm dose can result in heartworm infection. Puppies need to start this heartworm prevention medication at 12 weeks of age, they will then need a booster at 6 month of age and then need repeat injections every year at the same time as their annual vaccinations.

Tick and flea prevention is also a must. The newer oral flea and tick preventatives and tick collars are highly effective and very safe. These products prevent these parasites for extended periods. Paralysis ticks can be rapidly fatal for dogs of any age, for more information on paralysis ticks visit our webpage here: Paralysis Tick Emergency Care

Vaccinations

Vaccinations are also imperative to prevent deadlyinfectious diseases such as parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis and infectiouscanine cough. During the vaccination consultation, the veterinarian will alsocomplete a full physical examination to ensure your puppy is healthy and fitfor vaccination. Puppies need vaccinations at 6-8 weeks of age, 10-12 weeks ofage and 14-16 weeks of age. After these vaccinations are completed your puppywill then be able to safely mix with older dogs at dog parks and public placeswithout the risk of acquiring these infectious diseases.
