Your New Puppy’s Health

Familypet Vet - puppy outside

Starting from a young age it is recommended you start an at home “health check”. Doing this is great for your puppy to get them to tolerate someone examining them, especially getting used to having paws touched (we find a lot of puppies/dogs have a fear of having the nails clipped and just generally held).

It also helps us as veterinary practitioners to treat your puppy when needed. This can also be handy for yourself to notice when things aren’t quite right with your puppy/dog.
