What Day Is It? It Is New Puppy/Kitten Day!

Kitten & Puppy

When it is Spring/Summer season, it means school is almost out and summer vacation is around the corner. It also means new puppies and kittens!  Whether you adopt your new family member from the shelter/rescue group or breeder, it is important to make sure that they are healthy. I recommend a visit to the veterinarian within 24-48 hours post adoption.  The new puppy/kitten check will allow you to have their overall health checked including listening to the heart for a murmur, parasite examination-external and internal, and nutritional consultation. New puppy/kitten exams are great opportunities to discuss flea prevention, heartworm prevention, spay or neuter protocol, and vaccination plan. In addition, new puppy/kitten exams are a great time to discuss any questions or concerns. I recommend formulating a list of questions and concerns that you have about your new puppy/kitten.  If you would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to meet your new family member!      Elizabeth Rogers, DVM
