Control at puberty

For the animal in puberty, the health check naturally follows the pattern outlined earlier, but because puberty (around 6 – 7 months of age) is a pivotal moment in the puppy’s life, we warmly recommend a puberty visit. The specific emphases here are:

  • Monitoring growth and weight curves
  • Discussing changing nutritional needs
  • Checking cleanliness
  • Detect early behavioural problems
  • Evaluate teeth changes
  • Discuss contraception
