Our mobile veterinary doctors will perform a thorough nose-to-tail check-up and gather any medical history you have on your pet to determine the health of your puppy. This will also provide an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about taking care of your new pet. Our mobile vets have plenty of experience in helping new pet owners provide a great start on life. Some of the topics that you may wish to consider include the following:
- Symptoms of diseases
- Puppy diets
- Potty training
- Vaccination schedules
Most of these issues are equal for all puppies, however, our animal doctors will account for other features including age, breed, current behavioral, health issues, and your pet’s lifestyle, to recommend the best puppy care plan for your pet.
Understanding the best quality puppy food is a critical aspect of reliable puppy care. In fact, your puppy's body is growing in various ways that will greatly impact the quality of his or her life for the coming years. It is vitally important that you select a puppy diet that has been expertly formulated for growing puppies. Talk to one of our animal doctors for help in choosing the best food for your puppy.
Generally speaking, this schedule can be used to ensure your puppy is fed well throughout the day:
- Age six to twelve months: two meals daily
- Age three-six months: two-three meals daily
- Age six- sixteen weeks: three-four meals daily
We strongly recommend never sharing a plate with your pet. Puppies will usually beg for everything you are eating, and you might be tempted to offer them some small amounts of your food. Some food is toxic to pets or at the very least, not healthy. Keep your new pet on the right track by providing only veterinarian-recommended food and treats for your puppy.
