Our Canton Veterinarians Shares What to Expect for Your Puppy's First YearPuppy care in canton oh

Whether you've recently adopted a puppy or plan to bring one home in the near future, our Canton veterinarians are here to help with all your growing pup's health and wellness needs. At Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic, we specialize in the care of your furry friends.

Taking Care of Your New Puppy's Health By Vaccinating, Microchipping, Spay & Neutering

We know that bringing a new puppy home can be both exciting and a little intimidating. You may be wondering what to expect and what responsibilities you'll have as a new puppy owner. Of course, the health of your new dog is a top priority, which is why we recommend that you bring your dog in for a wellness exam in our office. This will allow us to physically examine your new puppy and make sure there are no health concerns. We can also use this time to make sure your new puppy is up-to-date on all its necessary vaccinations, such as:

  • rabies
  • bordetella
  • distemper
  • parvovirus

While your pet is here, our veterinarian will also likely speak with you about having your puppy spayed or neutered. Depending on the age and size of your puppy, we may even be able to schedule the spay/neuter appointment while you're here. This is an important procedure to have done that will help do your part to control the pet population and protect your dog's reproductive health.

Finally, if your puppy was not microchipped when you adopted him or her, we can handle this here in our office. Microchipping your puppy takes just a few moments and can help increase your chances of recovering your pet in the event that he or she becomes missing.
