Helpful pet care advice from Boundary Vet Clinic

As pet owners ourselves, we know that taking care of a new pet can be daunting.

Our small animal vets can advise you on looking after your puppy or kitten, and provide advice on other animals such as birds or pet rodents, including common health problems, recommended vaccinations and microchipping.

Looking after your puppy:

  • We recommend you get your first puppy vaccine at the age of 9 weeks, the second at 12 weeks, then a yearly booster.
  • The vaccine contains distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis and parvovirus.
  • We recommend an annual kennel cough vaccine.
  • Male dogs can be castrated from 6 months and for health reasons, we suggest all female dogs are spayed from 6 months onwards.
  • Microchips are inexpensive and invaluable to help identify and reunite pets with owners.
