All of us at Green Prairie Animal Hospitals LOVE new puppies! By brining your puppy to us as soon as possible, we can be sure that you and your new puppy off to a healthy start!

Your puppy visit will include a full nose-to-tail physical examination. We will look for any signs of illness or dental problems to be sure that your puppy is in good health.

Do you have questions about your new puppy, such as integrating your new puppy into your home, what you should feed your puppy, how you should start training your puppy, what vaccinations your puppy has received or should receive? Your first puppy visit with Green Prairie is the best time to ask any and all questions you may have about your new puppy. Even if you are a very experienced pet owner and have had puppies before, each pet is unique and offers an opportunity to learn something new! We welcome your questions and look forward to addressing any concerns you may have.

Your puppy wellness visits also present an opportunity to discuss your new puppy's recommended vaccine schedule, based on risk of exposure to preventable diseases, and the best plan for parasite testing, treatment, and prevention. Our doctors and other staff members are well-educated about veterinary vaccines and parasite control, and our goal is to give you the products to protect your puppy. We will review your pet's vaccine and deworming schedule and discuss the best way to continue, so don't forget to bring any records that you have received.

We will work hard to help you understand your pet's health considerations, and we encourage you to be involved in decisions regarding your puppy or kitten's health care. Puppy visits are an excellent way to get your new pet started on the road to a happy and healthy life. Let's take these important first steps together.

Our Vaccine Philosophy

Vaccines are important in preventing serious disease in dogs and cats. Because no vaccine is 100% effective or 100% free of side effects (such as allergic reaction, shock, autoimmune disease, and others), it is important to design a personalized vaccine protocol for each dog and cat, maximizing protection against the diseases your pet is likely to be exposed to.

Our current vaccine recommendations are based on up-to-date research and the incidence of disease in our area. During your pet's exam we will ask you questions to assess your pet’s individual risk. We will then design a customized vaccine protocol for your pet. This protocol can be modified as needed when that lifestyle changes, so be sure to let us know so we can keep your pet protected!
