Early Veterinary Care for Puppy & Kitten Health

Welcoming a new puppy or kitten into your home is an exciting time! Your adorable new family member will be bringing smiles to the faces of everyone they meet.

The joy of becoming a new cat or dog parent can be overwhelming, but just remember that you are now faced with some added responsibility. Your new puppy or kitten is at a fragile stage of their life. They are fully dependent on you to provide for their needs and ensure they are thriving. Frequent veterinary care is a big part of this responsibility since their bodies and immune systems are still developing and they can get sick very easily.

Our veterinarians provide the guidance you need and the personalized veterinary care that puppies and kittens need during their critical first year of life. We also want to help you set your new puppy or kitten up for a lifetime of success. Our veterinarians are Elite Fear Free Certified Professionals and they will do everything they can to make your new best friend feel safe during each visit. Short, frequent visits to our veterinary clinic can help them feel comfortable with the environment and get used to being handled by our team.

Parasite Prevention & Vaccinations

Deworming medications and the first round of puppy or kitten vaccinations will also be provided during this visit.
