- When: Once a month, ask at your nearest Westmorland surgery for the date of the next party
- Where: Westmorland Vets, Riverside Business Park, Natland Rd, Kendal
- Time: 7.30pm
Once your puppy has had their initial vaccinations, we don’t often see them again until their booster or when they are ill. This means they will soon start associating the vets as a bad place to be!
Puppy clinics are aimed to give them a positive experience, not have any nasty injections and instead, just have a few cuddles from our Qualified Veterinary Nurses. We advise booking a FREE appointment that suits you once a month until they are 6 months old.
It is a great time to chat with our Nurses about any behavioural problems your puppy might have.
We will also weigh your puppy to make sure they are growing up well and give advice on the best flea and worm treatment so they grow into happy healthy adult dogs.
Vaccinations and Health Checks
There are a number of contagious diseases such as
which can affect puppies. These can cause severe illness or in many cases can be fatal.
Many of the diseases are preventable by vaccination. Having a full health check at the time of the vaccinations means you can be confident your puppy is happy and healthy.
1 on 1 chat with the nurse and Puppy Packs
When you first come to the practice, one of our nurses will have a 1 on 1 chat to make sure your puppy is settling in well at home and they will go through our ‘Puppy Packs’ to make sure you are happy with the care your puppy needs.
It’s a good chance to ask questions regarding food, behaviour and insurance.
Worm and Flea Treatment
It is very important that your puppy gets wormed from a young age as they can get large burdens of Roundworms from their mum! This can result in poor and stunted growth.
We will give you a free Advocate Spot on treatment to get rid of fleas and roundworms as well as a lot of other nasty mites. Depending on your puppy’s needs and lifestyle, other treatment may be required prior to the free sample.
Life Time Care Club
Our Life Time Care Club covers what insurance companies won’t. If you join today, we can offer you and your puppy a huge range of discounts, including a FREE 2nd vaccination.
