Raising Healthy Puppies........Starts With Having Healthy Parents!
Our girls have routine annual check-ups and pre-breeding check-ups to ensure they are in perfect health to have a litter of puppies. Our breedings involve multiple trips to the girls veterinarian. These include progesterone testing every few days to determine the optimum breeding days, ultrasound to confirm pregnancy and then x-rays days before the whelping date to get an idea of the number of puppies. Mom and puppies return to the vets within 2-3 after being born to have their 1st health check-up and dew claw removal. Mom also gets a after puppies check-up! Puppies return to vets at 3 and 5 1/2 weeks of age for their first round of shots.
