Dr Kensik checked each puppy individually to listen for genetic defects.
She checked their hearts for heart murmurs, their eyes for signs of cataracts, their ears for ear mites. She checked their mouths for a good bite and cleft pallet. She looked over their whole physique to see that they had a sound structure.
Happily, all the puppies were reported to be in good health.

The vet techs then weighed each puppy and gave them a dewormer.

These booster shots will need to be repeated in three weeks. Be sure to mark your calendars so you don't forget to make an appointment to see the veterinary for your puppies boosters around May 23. At that time, your veterinary will also prescribe Heart Worm medication that you will need to administer monthly throughout the year. Your veterinary will also start your puppy on Flea medication. With the weather heating up, it will be very important to protect your puppy from parasites.
I will send home with each family a Puppy Packet with their individual shot records, Registration papers, and other helpful information about caring for your new puppy.
If you don't already have a veterinary and groomer in mind, do your research now. Ask your friends for their recommendations. You will find that veterinaries vary tremendously in their fees and routine procedures and patient manner. I like to call ahead before a visit to know what procedures are routine, and what I can expect for a bill.
