do you take them to the vet to get a health test, or will most breeders have gotton one done?
I took mine the day after I got them for a quick check up. Generally the breeder will have had one done before they leave but its always better to double check
I've got a health check/vaccine booked tomorrow morning for Blu. Done the same with Cheeko aswell.
Same here, not that I distrusted the breeder but I trust my vet more .
when we got Meg we had her on a friday evening and she was booked in for Monday morning for health check and 1st injection
thanks alot guys
how much does it cost roughly for all the vaccines , the 2 sets i think it is ,
is it about 60 pounds for them all. so like 30 pound per set?
I took mine for a free health check the day after i bought him home.
I was advised to do it by the breeder for peace of mind that pup was healthy and well (shows her confidence in her own dogs ).
I think it's important just to be on the safe side, on occasions people have discovered problems they didnt know about (rare hopefully) and where able to return the pup to the breeder.
I took mine in for a check-up and his first vaccine the Tuesday after I got him on the Saturday. It cost me £55 for the check-up, full course of injections and a Drontal worming tablet.
I think the cost of the vaccines vary from area to area, it will depend on what you vet charges for a consultation fee, I think for Arran the whole lot cost me just over £70 and that was over 2 years ago.
All my puppies got a free health check before they left for there homes and got a print off for a clean bill of health. Getting 9 puppies in and out of the vet's however, was not easy!! Lol
My vet charges £25 for the 2 puppy injections and you get a free health check and puppy pack
My vets offer a free puppy check so mine will be booked in as soon as she gets home.
:O 25£ for the full vaccinations so she was able to go outside? thats real good!
Well, you'l lbe taking him/her within a couple of weeks for his/her vaccinations so I would leave it until then unless you are worried about something.
I got my pup when he was 10 weeks old.
We got him on a Saturday and was booked in at the vets for the Monday as he would need his vaccinations. He had a vet check by the breeder before hand.
With vaccinations, we don't have to pay a consultation fee,
For both vaccines, it was £41 =]
And we also got the first lot of flea and worming treatment free.
Most breeders will have had their puppies vet checked but you should still take them to your own vet for peace of mind and to get them registered.
I know that when my puppies leave (when we get some) they will have had their first jab, be flea and worm treated and have been microchipped.
Always do one yourself no matter how good the breeder is. It gives you peace of mind to know that everything is fine
I agree wholeheartedly. I wouldn't rest until my own vet gave him the once over.
my pups been both vet checked by their breeders before they let them go but adviced us to get them vet checked ourselves just incase their vet missed out on something and just to be sure
Yes we did exactly the same. We got Molly on Friday night and I booked her in at the vets the day after for the Monday and she had her 2nd vaccination as she had already had her first at the breeders.
