To help your puppy stay happy and healthy, it’s a good idea to carry out a simple health check. Follow the steps in our puppy health care guide to check his health in between visits to the vet.
In order to regularly monitor your puppy’s health, you will first need to get them used to being handled and examined. Once they are comfortable with you touching their ears and paws, it will be a lot easier to gently examine them.
Preparing your puppy for their health check
Position your puppy on the table that you’ve already set up, putting a towel on the table in order to stop them from slipping. Give them a little bit of fuss; paying your puppy attention is not only important to keep them happy, but will also help you gain their trust and build a good relationship with them.
Begin by brushing and stroking their body.
