Puppy Visit Overview

Yay! You've made it to your pup's next vet visit! Just to recap, here’s what to expect at each veterinary visits at Carolina Ranch. Between 8 and 16 weeks of age, we’ll want to see your puppy every 3-4 weeks. At each visit, we'll do the following:

  • INTESTINAL PARASITE PREVENTION – We’ll perform a fecal test at each puppy visit so please bring a stool sample to your puppy’s appointment. We’ll also deworm your puppy at each visit.
  • PREVENTIONS – We’ll ensure your puppy has the appropriate heartworm and flea/tick prevention for their weight at each visit.
  • EDUCATION – We’ll provide handouts and educational information to help you and your puppy navigate puppyhood successfully.
