Package Details:

Who is eligible for package?
  • The Healthy Start package is designed for puppies and kittens who are between age 8 – 16 weeks old when starting the package.
Tips for scheduling
  • Vaccines are included in each Healthy Start visit, therefore, for their safety, please be sure that no vaccines have been administered to your puppy or kitten within 14 days of the first visit. Vaccines trigger the immune system to produce antibodies to protect the pet against the particular disease. The immune response can be diminished and interference can occur if additional vaccines are given within 2 weeks.
  • Some breeders may require a health exam within a specific time. These time limitations generally prevent us from being able to start the package at the initial vet visit, as it may be required within days of the last breeder vaccines being given. We’ll get you scheduled to start the package at the next visit when vaccines are due and can be administered safely.
  • Providing records ahead of time will allow us to ensure that appointments are scheduled appropriately.
Important notes
  • The Healthy Start Package is for preventative care only. Sick visits and medications are not included.
  • The total number of visits, fecal tests, doses of dewormer, and DAP/FVRCP vaccinations will be based on the age of the patient at the first package visit.
  • Intestinal parasite screening will be completed at each visit but a stool sample must be provided by the pet owner at appointment start time. Samples cannot be brought at a later date.
  • Pyrantel Pamoate Dewormer treats for hookworms and roundworms, the two most common intestinal parasites. Medications to treat for other parasites that could be diagnosed are not included.
  • Heartworm and flea/tick prevention are not included in the package, but are recommended for every pet to receive every month for their entire life.
Payment and Contract
  • Payment is due in FULL at the first Healthy Start visit. 
  • The Healthy Start Package charges are non-refundable and the package is non-transferable.
  • A signed contract must be on file in order to receive included services and pricing. It is not necessary to complete the contract until the first Healthy Start visit, but it is linked here if you would like to review it ahead of time.
