When it comes to taking your puppy to their very first vet visit, first-time pet parents might not know what to expect. In fact, there is a lot of excitement surrounding getting a new little bundle of joy in the form of a furry friend. The reality is, you will absolutely need to take your new pet to the vet as soon as possible to make sure they are up to date with all their shots and more. Ultimately, many new pet owners might not know what to expect when going to the vet for the first time with their brand new puppy. Here are some of the key things pet owners can expect during their puppy’s first vet visit.
Getting Key Information On Your Puppy
One of the first things your vet will do is weigh your puppy. In fact, weighing your puppy will allow your vet to gather the proper information regarding the overall health of your furry friend. The reality is, if your pet is either under or overweight, it can be quite damaging to their general health down the line.
Basic Vet Routine Visits
With your first pup, making sure all their organs are operating well and that their heart is beating properly makes all the difference in making sure that your pup stays healthy. In fact, the heart and lungs will be examined at the first vet visit by the use of a stethoscope, and the vet will also take their temperature. All this information ensures that your puppy is healthy. Ultimately, vets want to make sure your pup is healthy and if anything comes up, they’ll know when any issues arise and how best to deal with it.
