Puppy and Kitten Wellness Care
Just as with human babies, puppies and kittens need to see their veterinarian on a more frequent schedule than do adult pets. The attention you pay to your new pet’s well-being will also pay off later with a healthier adult and senior pet.
New puppy and kittens must make their first appointments in treatment. After the initial visit they can use the Wellness Clinic for boosters.
Key facts about your new family member:
- Puppies and kittens have weaker immune systems than adults and, as a result, are more susceptible to infection from diseases and parasites.
- Puppies and kittens need a series of vaccinations given 3-4 weeks apart, between the ages of 8 and 16 weeks.
- They’re in a high growth stage and they need diets specially formulated for their nutritional needs.
- These youngsters need to be examined more often and more thoroughly than adult pets to make sure they’re developing properly.
