First visit to the veterinarian

The puppy will normally have been given at least an initial vaccination and perhaps identification before it is sold or adopted. The seller should provide the new owner with the dog’s vaccination and ID card.

The first check-ups

It is always preferable to have a complete veterinary examination carried out on the puppy after purchase. In fact, if problems come to light and you wish to withdraw from the purchase this examination is obligatory. The veterinarian will do a full check up on the dog, verifying that it is not suffering from any infectious diseases, parasites or physiological problems. He or she will also give the puppy any vaccinations it may need, microchip it if required (electronic ID tag) and provide advice on diet and preventative worming treatment.
