Puppy Essentials

  • COLLAR & LEASH: We recommend ones that glow for nighttime walks or embroidered items for easy identification.
  • ID TAG: We recommend ID tags just in case your pet gets lost, especially during summertime when fireworks and storms happen.
  • MICROCHIP: Microchipping your pet will vastly increase chances of reuniting, should your pet become lost. It the size of a grain of rice and can be updated right from your phone or computer.
  • HARNESS: Harnesses are great for keeping pressure off of a puppy’s developing trachea and neck muscles.
  • BED OR COT: Beds not only provide comfy spaces but also can be used as a great training tool.
  • CRATE: Crates can be used to provide a safe space for your pet, as a training tool or for transport.
  • DIET: Finding the right diet for your pet can be challenging. All three of these brands are available on our online Pharmacy. Check our site for more details or give us a call!
  • TREATS: Most of our patients enjoy Lean Treats at the hospital! Grandma Lucy’s is available on our online Pharmacy. Great for training!
  • PUZZLES: Puzzles keep a growing puppy’s mind stimulated and helps keep them from feeling bored or anxious.
