Bullet’s visit to the vet – 19 July 2016

Dr Steinmann begins clinical examination
On 19th July, we took Bullet to ProVet Wildlife Services, in Hoedspruit, for his vaccination and general examination. Dr Liesel Steinmann was the vet on call, and attended to the puppy. We are pleased that at just 11 weeks old, Bullet weighs a good 4.9kg; a steady increase from the 3.5kg he weighed on the 4th of July.

On arrival, Bullet received a full clinical examination which was followed by a deworming tablet and a ‘scrub’ of his ears.

This was Bullet’s second trip to the vet for the ‘5-in-1 vaccines’. These vaccines are very important for puppies as they help to protect them against canine distemper, adenovirus type 2, parainfluenza and parvovirus. Adenovirus type 2 is especially dangerous as it contains two strains of the virus, type 1 and type 2.

His next visit to the vet will be in a month’s time for the last ‘5-in-1 vaccines’, and his first shots against rabies.
The little puppy was well-behaved and cooperative throughout his examination.
Proud parents, we are!
The visit to the vet is done

      Hi Shaun,
      We got Bullet from a breeding place called Carogan Kennels in Pretoria.
