Puppy Health Certificates (continued) The Canine Health Information


Center (CHIC) is a centralized canine health database. It maintains information on the health issues prevalent in specific breeds like hip dysplasia, cardiac disease, and thyroid disease among many others. Anyone can look up health tested dogs in their database. You will need the regis- tered AKC name of the puppy’s parents. Many pet stores obtain their


puppies for sale from puppy mills. Do your homework and investigate before making such an important and long term decision. Veterinarians are advocates for the


animals. We take an oath to protect ani- mal health and welfare, and to prevent or relieve animal suffering. The Certificate of Veterinary Inspection gives us a tangi- ble way to ensure pups are physically healthy before starting their life with a new owner. It’s so easy to fall in love with a new


puppy. By the time the puppy has had it first vet visit, the new owners have already bonded with the puppy. As a veterinarian, it’s absolutely heart- breaking to diagnose genetic or congenital problems during a new puppy exam, which requires the owner to have to make difficult and painful decisions. Please do your research before buying a puppy from a responsible breeder, and know your rights. Make sure you receive that


Certificate of Veterinary Inspection health certificate.

Puppy mills are commercial dog breeding operations that place


profit over the health and well-being of the breeder dogs and litters of pup- pies. The two primary sales outlets for puppies bred in puppy mills: 1) pet retail stores that sell puppies; 2) the internet. In 2018, an investigation by the Florida Department of Health iden- tified pet store puppies as the source of an outbreak of Campylobactor infections which was passed by pup- pies to 118 people across 18 states.
