3. FAQ for Dog Veterinarian Visits - Taking your dog to the veterinarian should be your first priority. This is especially true if you have other pets. It's a good idea to make sure your new pet is healthy and doesn't have any diseases or viruses he or she could transmit to other dogs in the house. The best way to find a veterinarian is by word of mouth. The dog shelter or rescue group where you adopted your dog may have a good recommendation. For proper preventative care, your dog should be examined by a veterinarian twice a year. A typical vet checkup includes searching for fleas using a special flea comb. Taking your dog's temperature, and a physical examination which will include checking your dog's ears, eyes, nose, teeth, skin, legs, joints, and genitals, and lymph nodes and listen to the heart and lungs. It will be common for the veterinarian to stress the importance of avoiding parasites, and will suggest options for flea and tick prevention and control.
The pets shown here have been adopted from the Oregon Humane Society over the past few days.

The Shelter Pet Project, launched in 2009, is a public service ad campaign focused on spreading the word that pets in shelters are wonderful and lovable, and encouraging potential adopters to consider the shelter as the first place to look when acquiring a “new best friend.”All of the pets listed on the and pages are available for adoption but each is in a different stage of getting their medical care. Before leaving for their forever homes, each pet is spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, brought up-to-date on vaccines, and dewormed. Some of our pets are still in the process of getting these services, and may not be available to be taken home immediately.
You must have an approved application before you meet any of our pets, so please allow plenty of time to fill out and talk with an adoption counselor about the kind of pet you’re looking for (Please note that you must be 21 years of age to adopt). To save time, you can complete our online application and submit it before you come or download a copy to bring with you. If you see a pet you are interested in, be sure to note his or her name on your application. Did you know that over 1,000 people per hour run a search right here looking to adopt a pet? Pet adoption is quickly becoming the preferred way to find a new dog, puppy, cat or kitten. Best of all, there are so many benefits when you adopt a dog or adopt a cat over buying. For instance, pet adoption will almost always be more affordable than buying a puppy for sale from a breeder or finding a kitten for sale from a litter. There are more benefits as well. Since pets in rescues and shelters usually come from a home where the owners ran out of money, got divorced, or had to move, it's common to find that the dogs and cats on our website are already housetrained, good with kids, or do well with other pets. People are finding out that buying a puppy for sale from a breeder isn't all it's cracked up to be and the stress of training a puppy is too much these days. Best of all, rescues care for their animals, and the dogs and cats don't leave the organization without having their shots and being taken to the vet. That means less stress, and more savings! So what are you waiting for? Go find that perfect pet!
