Puppy and kitten visits allow us to meet your new family member and ensure he or she is in good health and will stay that way! Our first puppy/kitten visits generally are scheduled for 45 minutes so our team can review veterinary care, home care and behavior. We send home an informative folder that reviews everything we discuss and more! Ideally, we should meet your new pet within the first few days of ownership to get things started off right with parasite prevention/treatment, vaccinations and training. Your puppy/kitten visit includes a comprehensive physical examination, fecal test for parasites, vaccinations, dewormer and preventatives. We deworm puppies and kittens based on the Center for Disease Control recommendations to help ensure the safety of your human family members! First puppy/kitten visits include a puppy/kitten kit with lots of information on feeding, training and healthcare.
Each pet is special and we are always learning new things about our pets. Even if you have had puppies and kittens before, there is always something new to learn!
We will look for any signs of illness and make sure that your new pet is in good health. The more educated you are about your pet, the better you will be able to care for him or her.
We will work hard to help you understand your pet’s health considerations, and we encourage you to be involved in decisions regarding your puppy’s or kitten’s health care.
