Welll rang breeder and we are bringing George home on the 25th so that's a week on Monday!!! So will be going to bed at 7 for the next week to get lots of sleep in before he gets here. He comes with a vet check from the breeder but do I need to get him to my vets before his 10 week vaccination to have a check there, what do you think.:)

I took Lolly as I just wanted to get her booked in and have peace of mind from my vets. But our vets are soooo good. All puppy checks are free. They see puppies once a month to weigh them and get them used to being handled by the vet and you only pay for any treatment they give.
I went for one appointment and it was worming time. I asked the vet to give it to Lolly as I'd had a job with the previous tablet. I'd only taken my credit card in my pocket and was very embarassed when I went to pay and it was only £4!!! I only had to pay for the worming tablet!

So might be worth checking with your vets what puppy service they provide. some have puppy parties and creches

There should be no need for you to take him to the vets before the 2nd vaccination, they will give him a good look over then :)

25th .... yippy :)

Aw poor Dylan, where was he from , bless him
He was from a breeder in Maldon, Essex, who was a cocker spaniel breeder with their first cockapoo litter. They did spray him with flea treatment when we picked him up, but the first day we removed in excess of 100 fleas. I've never seen anything like it. Still, after one advocate treatment and a switch to NI, and he was absolutely fine.

Aw Helen he must have been so uncomfortable bless him. The only reason I asked about the vet thing was incase there was (god forbid)
something wrong with him how would I stand with the breeder.
Have absolutely no reason to think that there will be by the way

I'm sure he'll be absolutely fine. I'm not sure, but I suspect that breeders give some kind of health warranty?? I'm sure that JD would be able to advise if this is the norm or not. Some give one month PetPlan insurance. I have to say though, that by the time you get them home, you're so in love that you'd never take them back no matter what was wrong with them. :love-eyes:

Hi again Jayne
forgot to say you get one months petplan insurance - they are fully wormed and have advocate [worm and flea treatment] so that should give you peace of mind! x

You need to check with your breeder as to whether George has insurance, has been de-fleaed, wormed etc, Ours had no insurance and no vaccinations, so we had them vet checked at 8 wks .

My breeder told me to take Betty to the vets to ensure that i was happy she was fit and well. My vets don't charge you for this either and give you loads of info and some treats etc (seem to remember getting a frontline flee thing too) and advised me on worming too so I was glad I went the day after I picked her up.

when are you starting your own insurance. or are you insuring him?


all of ours had their insurance set up before we got them, they were set to strat on the day we coloected them. so that the insurances over laped.

i know two people one who let the insurance laps before starting a new one and the other started it just before the insurance from the breeder ran out can remember what went wrong but both pups had an isue on got a cut paw i think but that might have been when she was older and switching insurance, anyway, check the small print some companys have a change over thing where their is like a 5 week peiriod that id something happens within the pariod you arent covered. i think its to prevent people from switching for a better deal when they know something is going to go wrong.

Poor Dylan.. that is a horrible start .. I hope you told the breeder. Things like that make me so cross, and it takes alot to ruffle my feathers, but thst is not good practice ... it upsets me. xxx Lucky Dylan has you now xxxx

Yes I did tell the breeder. The pups were raised in a stable and I guess the whole place must have been infested. But although that was definitely a point against the breeder, I did end up with a wonderful pup, so all was right in the end :)
