Give Your Puppy a Great Start Toward a Long, Healthy Life


The Puppy Wellness Program is designed to help you practice and maintain proper preventive health care for you new puppy and give him or her a great start toward a long, healthy life. From puppy shots to a healthy diet and socialization, we are here to help with your new family member.

The first few months of your puppy's life are the time when he or she is most at risk from contagious diseases and parasites and in need of many vaccines. Regular veterinary care, vaccinations, socialization, and training advice are essential components in keeping your newest family member as healthy as possible. 

To achieve this goal, we offer a Puppy Wellness Plan for all recommended preventive care for the first year of your puppy's life, including unlimited exams/office visits and year-round flea and heartworm prevention. This vaccination schedule and treatment plan follows the recommendations of the American Animal Hospital Association.
