Puppy & Kitten Care

Bringing home a new puppy or kitten is an exciting time for pet owners, whether it's your first or tenth new pet. By purchasing, adopting, or rescuing a puppy or kitten, you have taken on the responsibility of providing the care it needs to live a long, happy and healthy life.


Puppy and kitten-hood is often a time when you will have many questions about your new pet's care, and we are here to support you with exceptional pet care and guidance. All of us share your joy at welcoming this new family member into your life.

Just like infant children, your puppy or kitten will need specialized care during his or her first months of life. A visit to your veterinarian for a comprehensive physical examination will get your new pet on the right track toward receiving all the fundamental health care he or she will need during the early life stages.

Care for a new puppy or kitten will include:

  • Comprehensive wellness examinations

  • A series of necessary vaccines

  • Discussion on options for parasite prevention, spaying/neutering and microchipping

  • Guidance nutrition and diet recommendations

Needed and recommended pet vaccines include:

  • For puppies: Distemper, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza and Rabies.

  • For kittens: Distemper, Respiratory Virus Complex, Feline Leukemia and Rabies.

  • Additional recommendations: Kennel Cough, Lyme and Rattlesnake.

It is important to all of us that your puppy or kitten start off on the right paw and enjoy a healthy and happy life.
