Where Pets are Family.

New Puppies and Kittens

Congratulations on your new furry friend!

 

Thank you for choosing us to help protect and care for the new addition to your family. Our puppy and kitten wellness programs are designed to help get your furry friend started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy or kitten's development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help them grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, socialization, and potty training.

Puppies

Schedule your puppy for his or her first exam as soon as possible after adopt. Until your puppy has received a complete series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new dog is protected against rabies, distemper, and parvovirus, among other diseases. Your puppy will also need to be tested and treated for intestinal parasites, which are extremely common in young dogs.

Most puppies have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although dogs can have worms without showing any symptoms). It is important for puppies to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your puppy is properly treated, you can keep your entire family (including other older pets) safe from these and other parasites.

Kittens

Schedule your kitten for his or her first exam as soon as possible after adoption. Until your kitten has received a complete series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new pet is protected against rabies and panleukopenia (distemper,) cali

Depending on your cat’s risk, we may also advise vaccinating him or her against other diseases, such as feline leukemia virus (FeLV. In addition, your kitten will need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young cats.

Most kittens have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause coughing, weight loss, and a potbellied appearance in cats (although they may not cause any symptoms).  It is important for kittens to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your kitten is properly treated, you can keep your entire family (including other older pets) safe from these and other parasites.

We look forward to meeting your new puppy or kitten! Schedule your appointment today.
