Adding a new puppy or kitten to the family is a cause for joy and celebration. Pets bring happiness and warmth into our lives with their funny antics and loving natures. We want to help your new pet live a long, healthy, and happy life.
Puppies and kittens require special care for their growth and development. Just like human children, pets will need to go to the vet’s office for a check-up more frequently than adults to ensure they receive the proper vaccinations and are free from any developmental issues.
If you have recently brought a new puppy or kitten home, or are considering doing so, consider the following list of suggested veterinary services.
Spay/neuter surgery is recommended for all companion animals that will not be intentionally and responsibly bred. The best time for health and behavioral reasons to spay/neuter a pet is before the dog or cat becomes sexually mature. If you are adopting a puppy or kitten soon, this should be on your radar for the near future.
Microchipping can save your pet’s life if they ever become lost or separated from your family. It allows a chip that is registered with your contact information to be with them at all times for the rest of their life. The procedure is simple, fast, and involves little to no pain.
Pet vaccinations are key to protecting dogs and cats from potentially life-threatening diseases. Both puppies and kittens should receive their vaccinations in a series of three spaced-out veterinary appointments.
