If you are interested in getting a puppy or a kitten as a pet, knowing how to care for it properly is extremely important so it remains in the best of health.

Our vet will provide you with puppy care or kitten care recommendations to help your pet get off to the right start.

Routine Examinations And Primary Care

Our veterinarian will alert you as to the frequency they recommend your pet come to our practice for routine wellness examinations. In addition, if your pet requires any type of emergency care, our vet will handle situations promptly and effectively.

Administration Of Vaccinations

Your puppy or kitten will require some vaccinations to protect it against a variety of medical conditions. Our vet will discuss the importance of each type of available vaccination and at what time in your pet's life it should be administered. If you want additional information about a vaccination we offer, simply let our vet know and documentation will be provided to you to read over if you choose.

Parasite Control Measures

A pet with a parasite problem will suffer not just from health issues, but anxiety and depression as well in many cases. It is best to protect your pet against parasites like fleas, ticks, roundworm, and heartworm by using appropriate medications which are provided by our practitioner.

Spaying and Neutering

If you do not intend on breeding your new pet, having it spayed or neutered is best. These procedures are conducted in our practice in a surgical setting. In addition to stopping unwanted pregnancies, spaying and neutering also minimize the chance of some reproductive cancers in pets. Our vet will discuss the process with you during your pet's first well check at our facility. 

Dietary Considerations

If your pet requires a specific diet, our vet will discuss your options to ensure they receive the best nutrition available. Our vet will also help you obtain necessary food choices if needed. At each good visit, your pet's weight will be monitored to ensure your pet's dietary needs are being met.

Behavior Training & Socialization

Your kitten or puppy needs plenty of socialization, whether it is with people or other animals. In addition, behavioral training may be necessary. Our vet has information about groups to help with these topics.
