When Does My Pup Need To Be Vaccinated?
At 6-8 weeks of age puppies should receive their first vaccination; this is temporary and needs to be followed up with another at 12 weeks and 16 weeks. Not long after the 16 week vaccination your pet can be taken out in public areas. An annual booster is recommended each year for ongoing protection.

What Is The Best Flea And Tick Product For My Dog?
Bravecto is a chewable tablet that treats and controls fleas for 3 months and ticks for 4 months. Bravecto can be given from 8 weeks of age. Come in and talk to our team about the best product for your pet.
At What Age Should My Pet Be Desexed?
While your pets can be desexed as early as 6 weeks of age, we desex most of our patients between 5 and 6 months . We also generally recommend, unless necessary for medical reasons , not to desex a female pet whilst in season/heat. This can make the surgery potentially more complicated.
