Exams for Your Little One

It is best to schedule a checkup for your new puppy or kitten as soon as it arrives at your home so you can be sure it is healthy. Standard immunizations are given to most animals when they reach six weeks of age.

What to Expect during Your First Visit

You will be given information on how you can help your new pet live a happy, healthy life during this initial visit. We know you and your family will have many questions during this exciting time regarding:

  • How to care for your new pet’s teeth
  • Possible congenital problems your pet may have
  • What immunizations your pet will need
  • Whether you should spay or neuter your pet
  • What kind of food you should feed your pet
  • How to tackle the task of house training your pet

There is no such thing as a silly question. It is our pleasure to help you learn everything you need to know in order to raise your pet to be healthy and strong. The greater your knowledge about your puppy or kitten, the better pet owner you’ll be! You and your new pet are an important part of our practice. Big or small, we will happily answer every question you have as you begin this exciting new journey.
