Adolescent Check

An adolescent check is a half hour nurse clinic for adolescent puppies six or seven months old.

It is a long time between the second puppy vaccine and the first annual booster vaccine. These clinics provide an opportunity for you to bring your puppy to the surgery so that he or she to get to know and like us a little better.

We will perform a “mini clinical exam” making sure your puppy is quite happy to have his ears looked at, his mouth examined and his feet played with.

We will check his weight, make sure he is growing correctly and discuss his diet and the number of times a day to feed him.

We will check his teeth to make sure his adult dentition is coming through properly.

The clinic is also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have.These may be clinical (When should I get my puppy neutered? When do I need to worm him next?), or behavioural (My puppy jumps up at visitors, what can I do about this? Why has my puppy started to eat his own faeces?). Our experienced veterinary nurses are there to help and advise you.

Owning a dog can be extremely hard work but also very rewarding. The “teenage” months are often the most difficult and these nurse clinics are there to support you through them, as well as making sure that your puppy (and you) will enjoy coming to see us for the duration of his or her life.

Each thirty minute appointment costs £18.90

Please telephone the surgery to make an appointment.
