New Puppy/Kitten Tips

Getting a new puppy or kitten is an exciting event for the whole family and it is important to plan ahead and be aware of the responsibilities that go with raising a pet.

First, deciding between a cat or a dog may be as simple as species preference, preexisting housing conditions or time commitments.

Once you pick out your new pet here's what to expect when you bring them in for their first appointment. We encourage you to do that as soon as possible, as this will help you feel comfortable with their health as well as allow us to recognize any health problems that may need to be addressed.


Kittens / Cats

A new kitten / cat exam is exciting for everyone, and we're always looking to make their experience as comfortable as possible.


Puppies / Dogs

Once you get your new dog, we'll be looking forward to meeting the new addition to the family and getting you all off to a healthy start.
