Puppy & Kitten Care

Puppy Vaccinations and Kitten Vaccinations

Vaccinations can be critical to keeping your young pet healthy because they offer protection against dangerous diseases. While different kinds of pet vaccines are available, the core vaccinations are recommended for almost every puppy or kitten.

The core vaccinations might protect young dogs against canine distemper, canine parvovirus, rabies, and more. Core vaccinations for kittens may shield them from feline calicivirus, feline herpesvirus, rabies, and more.

Don’t be surprised if a veterinarian on our veterinary team recommends additional vaccines based on your location or your new pet’s medical history. Even if those additional vaccinations aren’t considered necessary for all puppies or kittens, they may still provide important protection for your pet.

Parasite Protection

Parasites can pose a serious threat to the well-being of your furry friends. Fleas can constantly make your pet uncomfortable and bring along disease-causing parasites. Ticks can also reside within your pet’s coat can infect them with severe illness. Heartworms are among the most dangerous parasites known to dogs and cats. There is a very real chance that your pet could die from heartworm disease if he is not protected.

The good news is that a veterinarian on our team can check your pet for parasites and provide advice on how best to keep your pet safe.

Spaying or Neutering

Although the primary goal of spaying or neutering is to curb the increase of stray cats and dogs, these two procedures also offer health benefits.

Spaying your female puppy or kitten might decrease her chances of developing certain types tumors. It can also help decrease problematic behaviors in your pet.

Meanwhile, neutering can protect your male pet from testicular cancer. Your pet may also be less likely to experience prostate issues if he is neutered early.

Don’t forget that neutering can also curb your pet’s tendency to roam in search of a potential mate. Since your pet is content to stay home, you don’t have to worry about him being involved in an accident.
