Puppy & Kitten Care Package

Why Have Puppy or Kitten Exams, Vaccines, and Deworming?

Puppy and Kitten exams are important to ensure your new family member is healthy and free of any congenital abnormalities. An exam is also beneficial to monitor their growth rate and check for any sign of illness. Vaccines pick up when mother's nursing immunity starts to end. Vaccinations are important to build a healthy immune system in your new puppy or kitten. A tailored vaccine series will ensure that your new pet will be protected if they are exposed to a sick animal. All puppies and kittens are born worms. They get intestinal worms from their mother while still in the womb and through their mother's milk. These worms can suck blood from your new pet and may cause a life-threatening condition. These parasites are also zoonotic, which means they can affect humans as well.



Our Puppy and Kitten care package includes the following :

A Physical Exam:

The most important part of the puppy and kitten care program. Your veterinarian will assess all body systems to check for any abnormalities.



Vaccines

A very crucial part of the first six months of your pets life. When they are spread out over a 3 to 4 weeks period of time they maximize the potential for immunity from the diseases within the vaccine.



Ear Cleaning

This is done to remove any debris that can create an environment for infection.



Ear Cytology

This will detect any present infection.



Fecal

This will detect intestinal parasites which could be contagious to you and your human loved ones.



Ear Mite Exam

This will detect any present ear mites which could lead to a secondary ear infection.



Spaying

Spaying is an ovariohysterectomy (removal of the ovaries and Uterus). If spayed before the fist heat cycle your pet has less than 1% chance of developing breast cancer. It eliminates the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer and, eliminates unwanted pregnancy.



Neutering

This is the removal of the testicles and spermatic cord. It eliminates the risk of testicular cancer, the second most common tumor in male dogs. It also greatly reduces the risk of prostate cancer and prostatitis. It reduces the risk of perianal tumors. Also, it reduces roaming and fighting and eliminates unwanted litters.



Unfortunate reality

More than 4 million pets are euthanized in U.S. animal shelters each year simply because they have no home. Many puppies and kittens less than 6 months old. Spaying and Neutering helps stop this needless loss of life.

Important Factors About Senior Testing

An aging pet's organs gradually deteriorate and may lose their ability to function properly.We use senior testing to promote early detection and treatment of disease, so we can maintain health and prevent illness during your pet's senior years. Early detection of disease often gives us more effective and less costly treatment options. And senior testing helps establish normal baseline values for your pet, creating a point of comparison for the future .



What Pets Should Take Part in Senior Testing ?

We recommend senior testing for all senior pets as well as any pet who is exhibiting one or more of the following symptoms:


  • Weight loss or gain
  • Increased thirst or urination
  • Lethargy
  • Vomiting/diarrhea
  • Poor hair coat
  • Coughing
  • Seizures
  • Unusual behavior
  • An overall decline in condition


Is My Pet a Senior ?

If your pet is 7 years or older, we consider him or her to be a senior. Your pet may seem healthy well into its senior years. However, many problems common to senior pets (like kidney or heart failure) may not be present symptoms until your pet becomes seriously ill. A comprehensive senior care program helps your veterinarian identify problems early enough to institute preventative healthcare measures.



How Do I Enroll My Pet?

Call us to arrange a day for your pet to receive his or her testing. Please withhold food from your pet starting at 10pm the nigght before so we can get an accurate blood sample. Make water available for your pet as usual. We prefer that you admit your pet to the hospital or clinic by 8:30 am, and we willl schedule a checkout appointment between 4pm and 5:30pm the same day to review the test results with you and discuss any appropriate care or tratement for youur pet.
