Whether you are a first time pet owner or have had pets all your life, raising a puppy or kitten can be rewarding and challenging at the same time. The first two to six months are a formidable time for any puppy or kitten and following the right steps can set your little one up for a healthy and happy life with you.
At the Animal House Hospital, we are happy to help walk you through the first weeks and months of raising your new addition. During your first few appointments, a variety of topics will be covered with you including:
- De-worming and intestinal parasites
- Housebreaking/litter training
- Introduction to pet insurance
- Nutritional recommendations
- Introduce puppy parties
You will be receiving a lot of information on these first visits. Your veterinarian and technician team are always there to answer your questions and guide you through the potential growing pains of a new pet.
