At Tamar Vets, we are always delighted to meet new additions to the family.
We understand that getting a puppy can be a whole new experience, so we try to make your visits to the vets as helpful as possible.
Our puppy vaccination course starts with a first vaccination from 6-8 weeks of age, with the second vaccination 2-4 weeks later, normally at 10 weeks of age. Puppies are ready to explore the great outdoors 7 days after their 2nd vaccination.
What to expect on your first visit
You will have a consultation with one of our Vets.
Your puppy will be weighed and then the Vet will discuss a range of preventative healthcare topics including fleas, worms, insurance, microchipping, diet, behaviour, and neutering (and anything else you want to talk about!).The vet will then give your puppy a full top to tail health check up. Once the vet is pleased that your puppy is in good health they will receive their first vaccination.
You will receive a Puppy Pack.
This is a really useful pack to have for any new puppy owner. We have spent time keeping it up to date with the most useful product information leaflets for you. We have also included fact sheets about behaviour and training, a fun socialisation chart for all the family to get involved with plus a complimentary voucher for your puppy to try Royal Canin’s puppy diet.
What to expect on your second visit
Your puppy will be re-weighed and checked before the Veterinary surgeon administers their second vaccination. Our Vet will also be available to answer any new questions that you may have for them.
We are hoping soon, to be inviting all our puppies to Tamar Vets Puppy Parties. These will be run monthly by Senior Qualified nurses and our receptionists. Puppy parties are a great opportunity for your puppies to come into the surgery in a friendly environment and socialise with others of a similar age. It’s also a lovely opportunity for owners to come and learn a little bit about separation anxiety in puppies, toilet training and anything else that you want to know! Tell us what you think.
