Puppy and Kitten Care
Are you the proud owner of a new puppy or kitten? Their early care is such an important part of ensuring that they lead a long and healthy life. At Kindness Animal Hosptial, we recommend that all new puppies and kittens be brought into our hospital for an initial examination within the first week of being welcomed into your home. This helps us to identify any potential causes for concern as well as to begin preventing future health issues.
Some of the issues that we’ll discuss with you at your new pet’s first visit to our practice include:
- Behavior and training
- Dietary choices
- Potty training
- Preventative medicines
- Weight management
- ...and more
The Importance of Vaccinations for Puppy and Kittens
When choosing the appropriate vaccinations for your pet, we will conduct a lifestyle evaluation to help determine which diseases your pet is most likely to encounter and need to be protected from. Some of the most common questions we’ll ask about your pet’s lifestyle include:
- Does your pet go to the beach?
- Does your pet lie in the grass?
- Does your pet play with children?
- Does your pet travel?
- What are the features of your neighborhood? (Often including wildlife or water features.)
- Where does your pet play?
We will base your young pet’s vaccination schedule on a recommended vaccine schedule, making adjustments for their particular lifestyle needs.
