Our puppy wellness program is designed to offer your new puppy all the benefits of veterinary services available to him / or her from 6 weeks of age to 16 weeks of age. Included in this service is a series of examinations and vaccinations including rabies, distemper, parvovirus, etc. In addition, your puppy will be tested for worms and be treated for the most common intestinal worm of puppies – roundworms. Most Roundworm infections do not have symptoms, but some may cause gastrointestinal signs such as vomiting and / or diarrhea. Performing a fecal test will allow us to treat your puppy accordingly. Although some worms are visible to the naked eye, most worm burdens are diagnosed by examining the stool of your puppy microscopically.
We will also try to simplify for you all the options for heartworm and flea control, and direct you to those products that meet your personal needs.
Dr. Todd and the team at Fonthill Animal Hospital love to help our Puppy families. We are a terrific resource for you, from advice on house breaking, training, behaviour concerns and nutrition – just give us a call!
