Question Questions for First Annual Exam

Beamer is going to the vet tomorrow for his 1st Annual Exam. (Beamer is my first dog ever, so...)

What questions should I be asking the vet? I want to make sure he gives a thorough exam on all of Beamers parts..

Help me out guys!

Most vets will check the heart, patella's, weight, ears and just generally go over the dog. I don't recommend letting them give the annual booster and rabies at the same time if he hasn't had the rabies already.

Ryan this is your opportunity to find out why Beamer likes to hump so much LOL

I always wait 3 weeks between boosters & rabbies shot, I think my vet requires at least 2 weeks on all small dogs.

In addition to the items listed above, your veterinarian will probably check out Beamer's teeth too. If he has any plaque building up, you'll probably hear some tips on dental care. You might want to ask his opinion on the types of bones to allow Beamer to chew on since you give him bones. He may caution you on some different types.

Good luck for a perfect check-up, Beamer!
