This first consultation with one of our Vets will include a weight check for your puppy, discussion of fleas, worms, insurance, microchipping, diet, behaviour, neutering…. Whatever you need to discuss. The vet will give your puppy a full top to tail health check-up, and once they are pleased that your puppy is in good health, they will receive their first vaccination.

You will need to book a second vaccination for your puppy exactly 4 weeks after the first. Your puppy will be re-weighed and checked before the Vet administers their second vaccination.

PUPPY JOURNEY

Puppy Parties and Puppy Club

Our Puppy Parties and Puppy Club provide all the support and advice you might need during those early weeks as well as socialisation opportunities for your growing puppy.  These are designed for puppies up to 4 months of age.

From 12 weeks, we offer Puppy Gold, supplying flea and worming treatments for the next 4 months’ as your puppy grows – as well as offering a substantial discount on treatments, this includes a consultation with a veterinary nurse each month, where you can weigh your puppy and get any additional advice you need.

Puppy Platinum is a unique new bundle combining the Puppy Plus Pack and Puppy Gold with the added benefit of receiving a 10% discount on veterinary consultations and nurse appointments for nail clipping included free.

At six months, your puppy can join our popular Mounts Bay Pets Health club – membership of the Pet Health Club provides all the routine preventative treatment your puppy will need as he or she matures.  Annual vaccinations, flea and worm treatment, nail clipping and health monitoring are all included.  You also benefit from membership discounts on food, consultation fees and procedures such as neutering.

Neutering

We recommend neutering of puppies from about 8 months of age, sometimes earlier for males, depending on breed.  We recommend this for health reasons, as neutering reduces risks of cancer in later life and ….????…as well as having a positive impact on behaviour.  For advice on when to neuter, do call us for advice on 01736 330331.

Insurance

In order to give peace of mind in the early weeks of puppy ownership, we offer four weeks’ free insurance cover which can be initiated immediately after any examination by the vet.  This is available to any uninsured puppy up to the age of one. The cover is provided with no obligation, simply allowing you time to research and decide on an insurer and policy of your choice.   We recommend insurance as the best way of ensuring you have the best options available to you in the event of injury or illness.    Please click here for more information about Insurance.

Puppy Club and Puppy Parties

Having a new puppy is an exciting time and these first few months of life have been shown to be a very significant developmental period as your puppy builds the foundations for lifelong social skills.   Everyone at Mounts Bay Vets wants to help you give your puppy the best start you can, and our regular Puppy Parties provide a great space for social contact and learning, building up positive experiences that will help them develop confidence and trust. 

In addition to the Puppy Parties, we run an online Puppy Club on facebook and by email – this contains freshly updated posts and videos relevant to your puppy’s journey.

Aims of our Puppy Classes: 

  • Familiarity with the veterinary surgery: To provide a positive introduction to the veterinary environment so that future visits will be as stress free as possible.
  • Socialisation – to give your puppy the opportunity to meet and play with other puppies of similar age in a safe supported environment.
  • Education – to provide you with as much help and advice as you need so that you can establish a lifelong bond with your puppy.

Puppy Parties and the Puppy Club cover a huge range of topics from nutrition and parasite treatment to toilet training and separation anxiety, social games and recall to lead-walking and travel.   

A new Puppy Party series starts every month and comprises an initial one-to-one meeting with one of our veterinary nurses (in person or by telephone) followed by three hour-long evening sessions at the practice with a group of up to 6 puppies.  For more information and to book onto a class, please call the practice on 01736 330331.  Spaces are limited and the parties are very popular – we book on a first come first served basis.
