At Family Pet Animal Hospital, we want to establish the health of your puppy and ensure that your new companion receives everything they need to have a healthy start. We are here to provide your puppy with everything he or she needs to grow up healthy and strong. During your puppy’s first visit with us, we will perform a thorough examination to look for any potential health issues, and create a customized vaccine schedule that is best for your puppy during their first few months of life.
In addition to the core set of vaccinations that will keep your pet healthy, our veterinarians will create a vaccine schedule that fits your puppy’s needs and lifestyle. This will ensure that your pet is protected from diseases he or she is likely to be exposed to. There are many diseases that are preventable through the judicious use of vaccines, so it is important to create an individualized protocol early in life to protect both your puppy and your family.
We recommend microchipping your new puppy so he or she can return home safely if they are lost or stolen. The unique identifier from your pet’s microchip will help bring them home safely, providing shelters and animal hospitals with your contact information to reunite you with your pet.

For your puppy’s first exam, we ask that you bring any health information provided to you by the seller or shelter. We also ask that you bring a fresh stool sample, and bring your puppy on a leash or in a secure carrier for the safety of your pet and the other guests.
