There is a lot of joy to be had in raising a new puppy or kitten. At Pet Kare Clinic we aim to get you and your little friend started on the right track. Avoiding some common pitfalls will help ensure your pet remains a positive healthy addition to your family.
Pediatric wellness appointments are designed around the goals of helping you create a loving and easy to raise animal, keeping the little one healthy, properly nourished, and protected from preventable serious diseases. We also screen all pediatrics for congenital and developmental abnormalities.
We’ll be talking with you about your new pet’s upbringing and addressing all your questions and concerns. However, we encourage you to read some of our online resources about raising a puppy or kitten so you can be as well informed as possible. Try doing a search for new puppy, or navigate via the boxes on top. For instance select “canine” then “behavior” and you’ll find 69 articles on housetraining, 17 articles on puppy training, and 89 articles on getting a new pet.
We try to keep the number of vaccinations given to a minimum high benefit to risk ratio. Vaccination for puppies and kittens is important and we still see many expensive and frustrating cases preventable by simple low-risk vaccinations. Read the Vaccine FAQ’s handout or visit our page on Vaccinations for more info.
