National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day

new puppy albuquerque It is National Puppy Day! What a great day to go to your local shelter and rescue a super cute fluffy puppy.  But after you get your newest addition to your family, make sure you know what to do to get started on their life long veterinary health.

New Puppy Checklist

  • Vaccination – make sure you get in to get your shots updated
  • Pet license  – Albuquerque requires that you have a pet license, we can take care of that for you.
  • Microchipping – If your fur baby ever gets lost, a microchip will make it much easier for them to be returned to you safe and sound.
  • Spay and Neuter – Not all puppies and kittens come already spayed or neutered. You can get them fixed as young as 2 months.
  • Declaw – This is best to do when they are young and can be paired with their spay/neuter.
  • Flea and Tick treatment/prevention – It is a good idea to treat every new pet for flea and ticks as well as get them started on their semi-annual Frontline Flea and Tick prevention treatment.
  • Supplies – food, food bowl, water bowl, litter, toys, leash, collar, catnip, fur ball remedy, soft paws, water dish, dog bed, crate, treats.
