Health Checks

Each and every Alika Coton de Tulear undergoes extensive and continuing health exams, including bi-annual complete chemistry panels. The basic veterinary examination is conducted by Maria Peters, DVM, of the Evesham Veterinary Clinic. Specialists that are consulted whenever the need arises include those at the University of Pennsylvania Small Animal Hospital.

The buyers of Alika Cotons receive two health exams conducted on their pup at age 6 weeks and 10 weeks. The examinations take approximately 20 minutes each. The new owner is required by our contract to take his/her pup to their own veterinarian right after delivery, both to verify the findings of Alika Cotons' veterinarian and to establish a rapport between the pup and the new health care provider.
