Puppy Care and Pet Care from Our Veterinarian

Pet owners, whether new or experienced, can be assured their new family members will receive the pet care their puppy might need at Doggie Dude Ranch in Ames, IA. Our animal hospital can provide veterinary pet care that covers a wide range of services by our veterinarian backed by our veterinary team. Our team is dedicated to helping maintain your puppy's health through his growing years and continue to provide dog care when he or she reaches adulthood. 

Puppy Care Services

One of the first steps in supporting your puppy's health is a visit to an animal hospital for a check-up. During the exam, our vet might check for any problems, such as a flea infestation, or any skin conditions, plus provide important vaccinations. These steps can be an important as part of your pet's preventative care regimen. 

Our veterinarian might ask you questions about your puppy's behavior, appetite, weight loss, or any changes you have observed. These general questions can help our vet put together a complete picture of your pet's overall health. If you plan to have your pet spayed or neutered, our vet will advise you on the appropriate age when the surgery can take place.

During the visit, you'll have an opportunity to ask our vet any questions you may have about proper puppy care, such as what type of food is recommended and which flea and tick medication is best for puppies.

If you plan to be away from home and need a safe and secure place for your dog to stay, we provide boarding services maintained and monitored by our staff. 


Once your puppy receives his initial vaccinations, it may be important that he receives follow-up vaccinations annually to support his immune system. A strong and healthy immune system works to stave off diseases, such as rabies, distemper, hepatitis, and parvovirus.
