After bringing a new puppy home they will need time to adjust. Your goal should be to help your little one bond with his/her new family. This will help minimize stress on your new puppy after having left their mother and littermates. At home, play, exercise, social contact, feeding, and good veterinary care are basic requirements. Behavioral training is important! Training leads to a happier pet and a rewarding relationship with your new puppy. Be sure to enroll your puppy in a puppy training class and read your puppy emails that you will receive from us.

They are great! They fit me in for an emergency appointment same day and are very professional in manner. Dr Rutledge was so gentle with our furbaby pitbull Kilo and the service was phenomenal.

Thank you Cherry Ridge Vet.
