PUPPY AND KITTEN CARE
First and foremost congratulations on the arrival of your newest family member! The team at Donwoods Animal Hospital are here to help you and your new baby every step of the way. When it comes to the health of your puppy or kitten, regular physical examinations, vaccinations, fecal testing for parasites, and deworming are all important.
We can help your family learn about puppy/kitten behaviour, potty training, discuss dietary recommendations, and potential health hazards for your new pet.
Spaying and neutering are also important topics; the appropriate age for the timing of sterilization surgery may vary upon the species and breed of your pet.
You will also want to consider whether your new puppy or kitten may need preventatives for heartworm, fleas, and ticks. Pet insurance is also something that we can help you choose.
We realize that adding a new family pet can come with lots of questions… but don’t forget, we’re here to help, so please don’t hesitate to call.
