Dogs Life At Green Pastures

8 weeks - 6 months (Puppy)

 

My first visit to the vets with my new owner. I will start my vaccinations, worm & flea program and have a health check. The nurse will register me for 4 weeks free insurance, don't forget to continue my cover. I will be seen in 2 weeks time for my 2nd vaccination and microchip. You can safely walk me one week after this and know that if I get lost we can be re-united. I will also need my Parvoirus booster vaccine when I am 16 weeks old when my immunity lowers.

5-6 Months ( Junior)

It's time to neuter me! Now I've been neutered I will be more prone to weight gain so I need to have regular weight checks. My permanent teeth are coming through and need brushing to keep them in good condition. Please ask a veterinary nurse to show you how. Don't forget to continue with my worm and flea treatment. I'm so inquisitive I don't want to get itchy fleas or even worse the potenitally fatal Lungworm.

6 months - 2 years ( Prime of life)

I'm young and healthy so hopefully I will only need my annual booster vaccinations during this time. Keeping my worm and flea treatment up to date is important as i'm very sociable with animals and people. I've noticed I've put on a little weight since my neutering operation, the nurse said she would weigh me and give you advice for free, so I don't become obese! I need a neutered low calorie diet now. I may get behavioural issues developing at this time of my life. It's important to keep me physically and mentally active in my prime.

 

2 years - 8 years (Adult Small Breeds)

Please keep my treats to a minimum and feed me a good quality dog food, so I don't put on weight. Dental disease affects us small dogs the most. It's important to brush my teeth daily to prevent dental disease.

 

2 years - 6 years (Adult Medium Breeds)

 

Please keep my treats to a minimum and feed me a good quality dog food so I don't put on weight. Dental disease will be affecting me now so it's important to brush my teeth daily to prevent dental disease.

 

 

 

 

 

2 years - 5 years (Adult Large Breeds)

 

 

 

Please keep my treats to a minimum and feed me a good quality dog food, so I don't put on weight. I will need to start a joint supplement now to keep me mobile. Unfortunately us big dogs suffer from arthritis from a young age.

 

 

 

 

8 years - 15+ years (Mature Small Breeds)

I'm getting older now and slowing down. A joint supplement will help to keep me mobile. The vets offer a 10Plus examination which is like a doggy MOT! I will also be prone to heart problems and diabetes.

 

6 years - 12+ years (Mature Medium Breeds)

I'm getting older now and slowing down. A joint supplement will help to keep me mobile. The vets offer a 10Plus examination which is like a doggy MOT! I will also be prone to diabetes.
