Puppies and kittens are absolutely adorable. They make new owners want to lie around, cuddle, and play with their new friends all day. We understand the desire at Walnut Valley Animal Hospital in Rowland Heights, CA, but there are also a few puppy or kitten care steps you should take. If you need help with preventative care for your pet, a “veterinarian near me” at our animal hospital is here for you.
Make Sure You’re Prepared
Bringing home a new pet can be quite stressful if you don’t have the tools you need for it. It might be a good idea to have food, something for your pet to eat and drink from, a bed, a few toys, a collar and leash, grooming supplies, and a litter box if your new pet is a kitten.
While it’s best to do your shopping before your pet even enters his new home for the first time, that doesn’t always happen. Just try to make a dash to the store when you have the opportunity.
Visit a Veterinarian on Our Veterinary Team for a Pet Wellness Exam
Young pets are at risk of contracting various illnesses and diseases. Visiting a vet on our team for a wellness exam helps ensure that your friend is in good health and provides the necessary vaccinations to keep them that way.
Throughout the first year of life, your new pet might benefit from a series of vaccinations and preventative care appointments. Within the first few appointments, we might also discuss spaying and neutering. These procedures can be important for your pet’s long-term health, as they can help prevent some types of cancer and other diseases.
Preventative care wellness appointments can also be beneficial for your new pet but they can also be very helpful for you. The vet can recommend the right food and products for your pet’s specific needs, which can take a lot of guesswork out of the equation. You can also ask questions and get guidance on any topic involving pet ownership.
