Did you know that a puppy should be examined and vaccinated for life threatening diseases such as parvovirus at around eight weeks of age? At that time your vet will advise you regarding nutrition and deworming. There will be three visits for a series of innoculations in the pups first few months. During these visits the puppy will be examined for evidence of inherited diseases such as heart murmurs and infectious diseases such as kennel cough. You can use these visits to ask your questions about behaviour problems and house training as well.
