Puppy and Kitten Care

Bringing a puppy or kitten into your family circle adds a new dimension to your lifestyle. Both pets are full of energy and have an inquisitive personality. One of the main things to know about puppies and kittens is that they need extra care while they are developing and growing. 

To get them started on the road to good health, a visit to our veterinary hospital is recommended. A veterinarian on our team will do an initial checkup to determine the status of your pet's health. If any recommendations are necessary, such as specific dietary requirements, or specific testing for an underlying or potential health issue, one of our vets will discuss these with you and form a plan of action.

As your puppy or kitten continues to grow, we will help guide your pet's journey to good health with age-appropriate suggestions for healthcare. This might include setting up a schedule for vaccinations. These are necessary whether your pet stays indoors or has access to the outside, such as puppy walks or playtime at the park. 

Protecting against parasites, such as fleas and ticks, are also part of your pet's health plan. We will discuss with you when it is time for preventative treatment, which may include oral medication. As your pet matures, you may also have questions about when your pet can be spayed or neutered. 

At Home Care

Puppies and kittens are a joy, but they can be a lot of work at the beginning. They need attention, positive support, a healthy diet, access to fresh water, and be kept safe and secure. Their daily regimen should also include a consistent routine and a plan of action for house training. For kittens, they should be introduced to a litter pan, and for puppies, frequent walks outside may be important. 

We are available to answer any questions you may have about the proper care for your puppy or kitten.
