Supporting Breeders to Improve the Health and Well-being of Dogs
LOS ANGELES, CA – PuppySpot.com, a
service connecting dog lovers with responsible breeders nationwide,
today announced a national series of health clinics to further enhance the health and well-being of the
puppies raised by its network of breeders. PuppySpot is working with the American Kennel Club (AKC) to
execute this program, providing important health screenings for breeding dogs.
The first PuppySpot health clinic was held in Lebanon, MO on June 20. Additional clinics are being planned
for the remainder of 2017. The free health examinations include hip, elbow, cardiac, dental and patellar
checks. Additional services will be offered at some health clinics as well, including Orthopedic Foundation
for Animals (OFA) certification. Participating breeders will also have an opportunity to speak with
representatives from both PuppySpot and AKC for more information about placing their puppies in happy homes
and registering their dogs with the AKC.
PuppySpot’s carefully screened and vetted breeder partners are
required to go above and beyond industry standards, which includes obtaining comprehensive
health evaluations for every puppy they place
through PuppySpot and keeping their puppies up-to-date on all vaccinations and de-wormings. Every puppy must
pass a thorough health check before PuppySpot will clear a puppy to travel to its forever home. As a final check and to activate PuppySpot’s industry-leading
Health Guarantee, PuppySpot also mandates its customers
take their puppy to a licensed veterinarian within 48 hours of receiving their puppy.
“We are thrilled to partner with AKC on this unique and important initiative,” said
Greg Liberman, Chief Executive
Officer of PuppySpot. “The health of the puppies we place is our number one priority, so we’re proud to
offer this additional service and assist our breeder community in providing the highest-quality veterinary
service to the animals in their care.”
“As part of AKC’s 130-plus years commitment to advance the health and well-being of all dogs, we are
committed to improving breeder education and breeder access to canine health screenings,” said David Roberts, AKC’s Breeder Development Executive. “We appreciate PuppySpot inviting us to work with them to make
these health clinics possible.”
