New puppies are always welcome at Garston Vets

At Garston Vets, we are always delighted to meet new additions to the family. We understand that getting a puppy can be quite an experience, so we try to make your visits as relaxed and helpful as possible.

Our puppy vaccination course starts with a first vaccination from 8 weeks of age, with the second vaccination 4 weeks later. Puppies are ready to explore the great outdoors 7 days after their 2nd vaccination, although full cover for Leptospirosis is not until 3 weeks after their second injection.

Please take a look at the benefits of joining one of our preventative health Wellness Plans at an early stage in your pet’s life – vaccinations, parasite medications, microchips & check ups can all be included.

To book a new puppy appointment, contact us to register your new pet and make an appointment.
