Progressive care for puppies and kittens takes a broad approach, addressing all aspects of life during the first year. Rose Animal Hospital offers veterinarians experienced in caring for these young pets. We are excited about guiding pet owners in topics such as proper growth and development, disease prevention, and the importance of training for appropriate behavior. At Rose Animal Hospital, you will find everything you need from a team dedicated to the needs of pets and their families.
What Puppies and Kittens Need
What will you need on the day you bring your young pet home? Some essentials include:
Pet Carrier Essential for safely transporting any unrestrained pet. Puppies and kittens can become frightened in a moving vehicle. Panic can cause an animal to become frantic and climb or jump around the car, behavior which is dangerous to drivers, passengers, and pets. A carrier is also convenient if your nervous youngster vomits, defecates, or urinates during the trip. For safety and a sense of security, we recommend keeping young pets in their carrier while in the veterinary waiting room. Dishes, Bedding, and Collars These personal items should fit the needs of your young pets. Puppies and kittens should be able to eat and with ease. Smaller, stable water and food dishes are recommended during this life stage, even for larger breeds. Toys All pet toys should meet veterinary safety standards and be appropriate to age, size, and type. Providing only one or two toys helps prevent overwhelming young pets with too much stimulation. Our veterinarians are pleased to advise you in providing safe, suitable accessories for your puppy or kitten.
We suggest you schedule a complete physical examination for your puppy or kitten right away, to ensure sound condition and good health. During the first visit, expect us to design a disease prevention and parasite control plan tailored to your pet’s needs. In addition, guidance is provided regarding issues such as diet and nutrition, proper behavior, socialization, and house training.
