Puppies

Vaccinations: Your puppy will require a vaccination between the ages of 6-8 weeks and again between weeks 10-12. Remember they’re not fully protected until 10-14 days after the final vaccination. They’ll also need a yearly booster to maintain their protection.

Heartworm: A parasite that can have dire consequences for any animal, especially a young pup. Protection should be started from 12 weeks of age and Vets on Call offers a very convenient monthly treatment that we tailor to your pup’s needs throughout their life.

Fleas: These little guys can make your pup extremely itchy and very uncomfortable. Luckily they are easily treated through routine prevention. Talk to us about our convenient monthly protection plan.

Worming: Your pup needs to be wormed every 2 weeks until they are 12 weeks of age. Following that it’s a simple monthly tablet. This is including in our convenient parasite prevention plan, just chat to one of our vets about this.

Microchipping: This is your pet’s unique identifier and is your best chance of having them safely returned to you if they get lost. You’ll also need a microchip number to register your pet with your local council.

Feeding: A good quality, balanced diet is critical to your pet’s health. Our vets will help you with establishing the best diet and feeding regime for your new family member.

Desexing: This is a procedure usually performed between 4-6 months. It prevents unwanted pregnancies but also has numerous health and behavioural benefits.

Insurance: Unfortunately, there is no assistance from the government for pet healthcare, however you can get pet insurance to help with any unexpected costs. The fine print can be a bit tricky so speak with one of our vets and we’ll happily point you in the right direction.
