Free Adolescent Assessment Clinic

new puppy lifestyle 12 sleeping

All puppies and kittens are invited to attend a free Adolescent Assessment at around 5 months old.  This is a realxed half hour appointment  where the nurse will check that your pet is developing well and discuss a wide range of health care topics.  Behaviour can start to change around this time and we can offer advice and reassurance. 

The assessment includes:

  • A full nose to tail examination
  • Weight check, diet and nutrition advice and how to monitor Body Condition Score
  • Mental stimulation and play, behavioural advice including managing boredom and 'home alone' for puppies
  • Parasite control (fleas, worms and mites
  • Dental care advice and teeth cleaning demonstration
  • Neutering advice

It's a great opportunity to raise any questions you may have about the care of your puppy or kitten and it helps them to become accustomed to visiting the vets in a relaxed environment.
