Puppy Care Insights


Lawndale Veterinary Hospital’s 4th Annual Puppy Care Fair is fast approaching! Have you registered for an evening full of information, giveaways, and fun? If you either have a new puppy, or are considering adding one to your family, then Lawndale Veterinary Hospital invites you to join us on Tuesday evening, March 13th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM (RSVP by giving us a call or signing up here).

Adopting a puppy is always a very exciting time for pet owners. It is also a time ripe with opportunities for owners to help puppies develop and mature into healthy, well-adjusted, and well-behaved companions. Did you know that if you can establish routines such as potty training, crate training, dental care, and grooming (to name a few) with your puppy early on, this can set your puppy up for a lifetime of success with these habits? Furthermore, puppy socialization during the prime socialization window can help your puppy be more tolerant and less fearful of new or different circumstances. Working on basic behavior commands with your puppy will help your puppy be more obedient. This obedience will come in handy in so many different ways throughout life – and, your puppy will love the interaction time with you! Staying on top of puppy wellness visits will give you a regular opportunity to talk with our doctors about your questions or concerns. Importantly, these wellness visits will also help keep your puppy healthy and protected (through vaccinations and parasite prevention).

Lawndale Veterinary Hospital is always striving to help owners understand all the ins and outs of raising puppies. In addition to our puppy wellness exam visits and our annual puppy care fair, we have also put together our ‘Paws to Protect: Puppies’ section on our website. We hope that providing you with these resources and tools will help empower you, as your puppy’s care giver, to fully understand all the ways you can best care for your puppy. And even more than that, we want you to know that Lawndale Veterinary Hospital is here to partner with you every step of the way during your puppy’s growth, development, and maturity!

Are you considering joining us for the Puppy Care Fair? All puppies (and their owners!) are invited! We will have information on topics such as wellness care, puppy training, parasite prevention, vaccinations, first aid, nutrition, microchips, pet insurance, and the importance of spaying and neutering. This is a chance to not only learn important puppy care information, but also ask your own questions! So don’t miss out on an opportunity to not only learn helpful puppy information, but also receive free puppy goodies, free food (for humans!), a discount towards your puppy’s spay or neuter procedure, and the chance to win a free microchip.

We look forward to meeting your puppy and seeing you at our 4th Annual Puppy Care Fair!
