At Braid Vets we offer an  unrivalled service for new puppies! We recognize the importance of “getting it right” in your new pup’s first year, so we recommend a  series of visits to the practice for regular health exams and advice.

pic-puppyWe encourage you to bring your new puppy in the first few days after his/her arrival. This enables our vet to carry out a full health exam to give you  peace of mind. Our Veterinary Nurse will then run through our Puppy Pack, covering topics such as feeding, house training, our Braid Vets Health Plan, flea and worm treatments, microchipping, and Pet Insurance.

Two visits are required for routine vaccinations, starting from 7 weeks of age.

Once your puppy has had its first vaccination we invite you to attend one of our evening Puppy Parties, run by our Veterinary Nurses. These are great fun for all!

We then invite you to return with your puppy for further check-ups, at six months old with a vet, and at nine and twelve months with a Veterinary Nurse, to  monitor health and development and to address any issues you may be experiencing.

The cost of all of these health exam visits is included in the fee for your puppy’s vaccinations; however the evening Puppy Party is charged at  an extra £10.

It is our aim that we do what we can to ensure that, by your puppy’s first birthday, you have a “bomb-proof” pet!
