As soon as a new dog is brought into our program, it is taken to our veterinarian where it will receive a complete physical, vaccinations, heartworm and parasite check and microchip. Also, we immediately schedule a spay/neuter if needed.
During their time in our program, the dogs are taken regularly to the vet for noninvasive experiences. They may get weighed or just have a friendly exchange with staff. We do this to create positive experiences and to proof the dog to the vet, ensuring it will be well-behaved and calm during doctor visits. The week before delivery the dog will go back in for a complete exam to ensure that they are delivered to their new home in excellent health.
