Puppy Care in Dubuque, IA
Bringing home a new family member is exciting & overwhelming! Our goal is to help you and your new pet adjust to life together! One of the first things you should do when you bring your new puppy home is to introduce them to us– your veterinary team at Colonial Terrance Animal Hospital. Our puppy care offers an excellent opportunity to get you and your new pet off on the right foot (and paw)!
Full Nose to Tail Physical Examination
Your puppy visit will include a full “nose-to-tail” physical examination. We will look for any signs of illness and make sure that your new pet is in good health. We will help answer questions about nutrition, training, vaccinations, grooming, parasite protection, and overall health. Even the most experienced pet owners have questions since each pet is unique and offers an opportunity to learn something new! We welcome your questions and look forward to addressing any concerns you may have. The more educated you are about your puppy care, the better you will be able to care for him or her, so we strive to offer you all the support you need.
Puppy Wellness Visits
Puppy wellness visits also present an opportunity to discuss your new pet’s recommended vaccine schedule and the best plan for parasite testing, treatment, and prevention. Our doctors and other staff members are well-educated about veterinary vaccines and parasite control, and our goal is to give you the best advice for your puppy. We will review your pet’s vaccine and deworming schedule and discuss the best way to continue, so don’t forget to bring any records that you have received.
We will work hard to help you understand your pet’s health considerations, and we encourage you to be involved in decisions regarding your puppy’s health care. Puppy visits are an excellent way to get your new pet started on the road to a happy and healthy life. Let’s take these important first steps together.
