New Puppy Tips

New Puppy? What To Do First

Have you just acquired a new puppy? If so, you are most likely excited yet a bit apprehensive about caring for your new pet. There are a few steps to take to ensure your puppy gets off to a great start with their health. Contact Bluegrass Animal Hospital in Knoxville to make an appointment for a good visit with our veterinarian for your puppy at our animal hospital. Here are some services we provide.

Routine Examinations

Our veterinarian will conduct examinations of your puppy to check on their well-being at recommended intervals. These sessions will help in monitoring your pet's vital signs and weight, which could signify difficulties if they are not within a normal range. If your pet is suffering from a medical problem, our veterinary team will assist in providing them with proper treatment so symptoms decrease or subside. During these meetings, our vet will provide you with recommendations regarding your dog's care and will answer any questions you may have about your pet.

Preventative Measures

There are several preventative measures to take to keep your puppy healthy and safe. Immunizations are provided to protect your dog against harmful diseases and conditions. You may want to try microchipping so your puppy has a better chance of being reunited with you should it get lost. Parasite prevention in the form of medication or care tips will also help to keep your pet comfortable. If your puppy contracts parasites, our vet will treat them problem promptly.

Medical Emergencies

If at any time your puppy gets injured or becomes ill, a trip to our animal hospital is necessary to remedy the problem. Our veterinarian is available to handle all types of emergencies, including those that require surgical procedures. If your pet gets hit by a car, fights with another animal, falls and gets hurt, or ate something poisonous, head to our practice for immediate assistance.
