Puppy Health is Our #1 Priority
As part of the PuppySpot Difference, we are committed to placing healthy puppies into happy homes. To accomplish this, we have a number of measures in place to ensure the health of our puppies.
The Puppies Health Team
Our dedicated puppies Health Team is comprised of experts on puppy and adult dog care, including a consulting licensed veterinarian, Dr. Brandon Sinn, DVM and several experienced veterinary technicians.

Puppies Extensive Health Check Process
The puppies Health Team created a more than 30-point checklist to confirm and reconfirm that every puppy meets the company’s best-in-class health standards. The checklist is implemented after each puppy undergoes a comprehensive nose-to-tail health evaluation required to be completed by the breeder’s licensed veterinarian. The results of this health evaluation are reported through our mandatory Veterinary Health Report (VHR) to be completed shortly before your puppy comes home to ensure the puppy is healthy and the check was recent. The report is then reviewed for any issues or concerns noted by the breeder’s veterinarian. Once the puppy arrives home, we require you to bring him or her to your own veterinarian within two business days after arrival to re-verify the puppy’s health and activate our Health Guarantee.
About puppies Veterinary Health Report
Certified by a third-party, licensed veterinarian, the VHR requires an examination of a puppy’s ears, eyes, mouth, teeth, gums, respiratory system, cardiovascular system, musculoskeletal system, skin and coat, gastrointestinal system, and external genitalia.
Puppies Breeder Standards
Puppies requires all of its breeder partners to maintain a Program of Veterinary Care (PVC), have a formal relationship with an attending USDA-accredited veterinarian, implement daily exercise programs and dog-safe behavioral enrichment, report and address any issues, and much, much more. Please visit our puppies Standards page to learn more.
If a breeder partner fails to adhere to any aspect of puppies health standards, we automatically investigate and, if appropriate, remove them from our network.
Tracking Every Puppy’s Health
Apart from the measures above to safeguard the health of our puppies, we also have an extensive, internal proprietary tracking system for every puppy so we can monitor the puppy’s vaccine, de-worming and health records.
Our journey with you doesn’t end here. If you have any questions about your new four-legged family member, our team of experienced Vet Techs and dog loving Puppy Concierges would love to answer them for you!
