Here at Sherry's Cockapoos we work closely with our vet to insure that all puppies are in excellent health to the best of our knowledge.
|Our vet's name is
P.O. Box 1076
|Charles McWhorter is a fine vet and he is always there when I need him. Any time I need him, it doesn't matter if it is day, night, saturday or sundays all I have to do is call him. He is just a phone call away. You just don't find many vets like mine. All of my adult dogs are health checked and up to date on their shots.
Below are some pictures that I took on February 16,2009 when we took in Lacy cockapoo puppies when they were 6 weeks old to get health checked and their first set of puppy shots.
Our goal is to produce healthy,happy,loving,smart and well socialized puppies.
