Getting a new puppy is a lot of fun- and also a lot of work. Luckily though, a good vet can make the process a little easier. Vets often offer “puppy packages”, which bundle some of the most common puppy services into one (or several) convenient vet visits. So what should this puppy package include? We’ll give you the facts below.
What is a Puppy Package?
A puppy package covers all of the basic services needed to keep a young dog healthy. This includes vaccines and parasite control, and deworming treatment (if needed). Some puppy packages will include other services such as tooth brushing and nail trims. If these services aren’t included, then they can be added for a small fee.
What to Expect at the Appointment
If you’ve had dogs or cats before, then you know what happens at a vet appointment. But if this puppy is your first pet, then you might be wondering what to expect. Well, going to the vet is very similar to going to the doctor’s office. The vet will listen to your dog’s heart and lungs and perform a basic physical exam, sometimes with blood work. They will also talk with you about any symptoms they are experiencing and help you plan a healthy lifestyle based on your dog’s needs. It’s quick, easy, and the best way to protect your dog’s health.
Information About Spaying and Neutering
When you visit the vet for a puppy package, he or she will talk to you about your spaying/neutering options. Spaying and neutering are essential for good health and also for animal control in the community. Spaying and neutering are also very simple processes that will not hurt your animal.
Getting Your Puppy Used to the Vet
This is another important reason to choose a puppy package. Going to the vet is simply a part of a healthy pet’s life. But that doesn’t mean pets always enjoy it! Taking your dog to the vet regularly from their puppy years onward will help them get used to the vet, preventing fear and discomfort.
