When you are new to dog care it is important that you seek out the services of a vet for you and your small dog. Even if you already have a vet you should check up on them occasionally so you know what is going on with your pet’s health. Even though there are many people who choose to go the route of home veterinary care, the truth is that home-based veterinarians are often more experienced and can take better care of your animals.
When you have your pets spayed or neutered, you will no longer need to have a visit to the veterinarian for heartworm protection. The veterinarian will be able to prescribe and treat these heartworm infections for you as well as give you advice on how to prevent heartworm disease in the first place. When you spay or neuter your puppy you should take them to see the veterinarian within a month of the spaying or neutering to ensure they have been given the heartworm medication. Be sure to get them back to the vet the following month for a heartworm test.
Puppies and their pups (we call them kittens) go through changes in growth and development that come at different stages in the life of your dog. During this time their teeth, skin and coat can all change. It is during this time that they should have a yearly heart worm test performed by their veterinarian to make sure that there have not been any parasites present. If you have just recently adopted a puppy, this is an important procedure to complete as soon as possible so that the correct treatment can be administered.
Your veterinarian can also perform a quick physical exam of your puppy to determine if he or she has any parasites present or not. If you have not had your puppy examined recently then you should start today by scheduling a quick visit to the veterinarian for a heartworm test and/or physical exam. As a dog owner it is important that you understand your pet and the signs and symptoms so you can give your dog the proper care that he or she needs. If you take care of your pet then they will take care of you.
