Puppy and Kitten Care
Adopting a puppy or kitten is an exciting experience for everyone in the family. While it is tempting to take pictures of him or play with him right away, you must remember to schedule appointments with a trusted veterinarian for all pet care needs. Pets need certain veterinary services to stay healthy and happy for the years to come, and here at Alum Rock Animal Hospital in San Jose, CA, we have quality puppy care and kitten care services to do that.
Pet Wellness Exams
The first appointment with a veterinarian should be a pet wellness exam. These exams check the overall health. Through a series of assessments, we can determine if your pet is suffering from a health problem and treat it right away.
Vaccines give your pet’s body the immunity to protect himself from various diseases, such as distemper, rabies, parvovirus, and bordetella. Getting him vaccinated early on is paramount since he has not yet built the immune strength to fight off these viruses and diseases.
Microchipping your pet is the ideal solution in case he should go missing. While it is not the same as a GPS tracking device, it will provide animal shelters with a unique number to search for in a national database that will have your contact information should he get lost and found. Keeping this information up-to-date is crucial.
Spaying and Neutering
During your pet’s wellness appointment, you will want to think about getting your puppy or kitten spayed or neutered. Spaying or neutering a pet helps prevent unwanted pregnancy, curb behavioral problems, and lower the risk of cancers occurring.
The weight of your puppy or kitten should match the age and breed his species. Our veterinarian can provide you with essential tips to keep your little furry friend at a healthy weight.
Like humans, pets need regular dental care to keep their mouths, gums, and teeth in good shape. Tartar and plaque are problems that can travel to other parts of the body and create havoc there. Let our veterinarian in San Jose maintain your pet’s oral health with our dental services.
