Airedale Puppy Exam

Today we went to the veterinarian for an Airedale Puppy Exam for all nine puppies.

Annie’s six week old puppies went to the veterinarian today for a physical checkup. Although, this is not a requirement, and often not done by breeders of companion dogs, I felt that it would be worthwhile as a little extra insurance that there were no health issues with the pups before they went to their forever homes.

The biggest problem I had was transporting all nine puppies to the vets. With them weighing between 7 to 8 pounds each, I put them in three different cardboard boxes before putting them in the backseat of the car. When we got to the vets and got them in the exam room I consolidated them into two boxes. I had a big cargo mat in the back of the car and so on the way home we discarded the boxes and put them all on the mat. Luckily, because they had just had breakfast about an hour before going to the vets when we were finished with the exam they were all ready for their nap.

The good news is that all nine puppies passed with flying colors. Part of the exam included eyes, ears, noses and mouths, as well as their heart rate and rhythm and their lungs. Also there abdomens were checked as well as all joints to ensure that they had a full range of motion without any pain.

Also, each puppy had a weigh-in. And just from last Sunday when we weighed them, they had all gained additional weight. Below I’ve listed their current weights.
