An Owner's Guide: Caring for a New Puppy

Congratulations on the adoption of your new furry friend!

We’re here to help you on your journey as a new pet parent--as your experts and friends when it comes to making important decisions surrounding your new puppy’s health and wellness.

Our online puppy packs are designed to provide you with valuable information about raising the healthiest, happiest puppy possible. Our puppy packs work best cohesively with in-house wellness visits to Bayside Animal Hospital and the help of our pet medical experts.

Dr. Given, Tami, Joy, and the rest of the staff were amazingly helpful when I called and needed to bring my dog in the same day because he was bitten by another dog. They were extremely accommodating, fast, informative, and so sweet to my dog. They made things as easy as possible for us. — Erin Moeller

Our first experience was amazing. Once we walked through the doors, Everyone we came into contact with was so welcoming. The tech was so calm and sweet with my pup and Dr. Shepherd was very thorough in his examination and listened to all of my concerns as well as went over the X-rays with me thoroughly while also making a plan for referral. He definitely gained our trust, and we look forward to seeing you all again in the near future. Thank y'all all so much. 😉 — Mary Hopkins
