We've teamed up with our friends at Pets at Home to record an episode of the Puppy Podcast. In this episode, we talk about how social distancing and face coverings can affect our furry friends.
About the episode
In this episode of the puppy podcast our vets, Dr Sam and Dr Huw, talk us through the things you can be doing, as pet owners, to make sure our puppies don’t miss out on socialisation or important preventative care, such as vaccinations and neutering.
They also talk us through the steps we’ve taken in vet practices to try and keep everyone safe aswell as making any new family members feel as welcome and comfortable as possible, such as getting them used to people wearing face coverings.

Face coverings can worry dogs because they take in a lot of information from reading people's facial expressions.

Puppies can be fearful of certain experiences if they do not have exposure to these things early on.
