    I definetely wouldn't take them on leads.. your pups can pick up so-o many dangerous diseases that way, even PARVO! And once one gets it, it'll go through your litter like a wild fire, sparing none.
    Not until 2wks AFTER their 2ND vaccinations are they safe enough to walk around in public places!!
    Call your vet & ask if they'll do a home visit for you or call around till you find one that will, it won't be much dearer and will definetely worth it to keep them safe!!

    NO lead...too dangerous!

    If they are too big to put in a transport box...a big cardboard box...2 people...carry the puppies in and keep them off the floor in the vets. It is after all an animal hospital which means sick animals come through there

    I transported my puppies to the vet in a crate. Yes I had to wait until someone could go with me to help carrying it thru the door.

    I rang a few hours before my appointment to check if they had any parvo cases in because if they had I wouldn't of gone & to remind them I had a large crate of puppies coming in. They took me straight thru to a room when we arrived no hanging around in the waiting room.

    I picked up all the paperwork for their microchip etc the day before and filled out all the information I could to save time in the vet of which they were grateful for.
