Puppy and Kitten Care

Bringing a puppy or kitten into your life is like adding a new member to your family. A puppy or kitten will provide years of love and companionship. But, puppies and kittens also come with a great deal of responsibility. Our caring team at Affordable Animal Hospital in Eagle Rock is here to help you with every aspect of raising healthy puppies and kittens.

Puppy and Kitten Exams

We recommend scheduling a visit with our vet as soon as your new puppy or kitten comes home with you. Regular puppy and kitten exams and immunizations should begin at about 6 weeks of age.

Puppy and Kitten Care: Exams and Vaccinations

During your puppy or kitten's visits, your vet will go over what to expect in terms of examinations and immunizations to keep your young pet strong and healthy. During your initial visits, be sure to ask questions about any of the following:

  • Your kitten or puppy's teeth
  • Any congenital problems
  • Vaccinations
  • Spaying and neutering
  • Diet and nutrition
  • House training
  • Obedience training
  • Behavioral concerns

Remember, there is no wrong question – we love to help our pet owners care for their animals and solve any problems they encounter. The more you know about pet care, the better for your pet – and for you. We value your new pet's health and understand how important he or she is to you and your family. Our dedicated staff is here to answer any question or concern you may have.

Not only is it important for your young pets to become familiar with visiting the vet, pet owners also must get into the habit of having their pets routinely examined. There are a range of issues to know when raising a puppy or kitten. We can provide all the information you need to care for your new furry family member, and help them have a healthy life.
