You, of course, need to take your dog to the vet if he has any noticeable symptoms or health issues. For example, you know that you need to visit the vet if your Goldendoodle is not eating, or if your pet suffers an injury. But that doesn’t mean you should only take your Goldendoodle to the vet when he is having health problems. So how often should you take your Goldendoodle to the vet?

Shots and vaccinations

You need to take your Goldendoodle puppy to the vet every 3 or 4 weeks for vaccinations and vet checkups until about 4 months.

The vet may start your Goldendoodle on flea and tick medications after 8 weeks. At 12 to 16 weeks, your vet may start your Goldendoodle on a heartworm preventative.

After your puppy gets all of his vaccinations, you won’t need to take your Goldendoodle to the vet until 6 months for his checkup.

You do need to bring your pup in for his vaccine booster shots for rabies and DHPP every 1-3 and 1-2 years, respectively.

Regular checkups

How often is regular? It varies depending on the age of your pet. Your Goldendoodle puppy needs to visit the vet more often than he will when he’s an adult.

After 6 months, you should take your Goldendoodle to the vet every year for an annual checkup. Although Goldendoodles are generally healthy dogs, it’s still a good idea to go in for regular wellness visits to make sure that your pup is as healthy as can be. The vet will make sure that your Goldendoodle develops properly and stays healthy.

Dogs older than seven years may need to visit the vet more than once a year. Older dogs are more prone to health problems, and regular visits help your vet detect or monitor health problems. Your vet will tell you how often he or she recommends that you bring your Goldendoodle in for a visit.

Our health guarantee

All of our Goldendoodle puppies receive their first round of shots, they visit the vet and are checked for worms regularly, and they get a complete health check before leaving for their new forever homes. Our Goldendoodle puppies also come home with a 2-year health guarantee.

In order to maintain this warranty, you must take your Goldendoodle puppy to be examined by a licensed veterinarian within 3 days of  your purchase. Failing to do so voids the health warranty.

Your Goldendoodle must also be kept under the care of a licensed veterinarian, and have all of the recommended vaccinations.
