Puppy and Kitten Vaccinations

Vaccinations are the best way to protect your new puppy or kitten from several deadly diseases. While your puppy or kitten retains some immunity through its mother’s milk, your pet will require multiple core vaccines to keep it healthy in the future. Some vaccines, like the rabies vaccine, are mandatory under state law.

Your veterinarian will determine which puppy and kitten vaccinations are necessary for protecting your pet’s health. These can include vaccines against distemper, adenovirus, parvovirus, feline herpesvirus, feline calicivirus, and feline panleukopenia. Your veterinarian can also recommend non-core vaccines based on your pet’s environment and lifestyle. These can include vaccines against Lyme disease, Bordetella, and Chlamydia.

Spay & Neuter Services

Spaying and neutering your pet is crucial for preventing pregnancy and reducing the risk of several conditions involving the reproductive organs. Spaying removes the ovaries from female pets, while neutering removes the testicles from male pets. These procedures eliminate your pet’s risk of pregnancy, prevent unwanted behaviors associated with mating and heat cycles, and protect it from various cancers involving the reproductive organs.

Our veterinarian can perform spay and neuter services during your pet’s annual veterinary exam. They will sedate your pet and monitor its vital signs during the surgery. You typically can pick up your pet at the end of the day after its procedure is complete.

Nutritional Guidance

You must give your growing puppy or kitten the nutrition necessary to develop correctly and thrive in its new environment. Whether your pet has special dietary needs or you are simply looking for a healthy option to help it grow, our veterinarian can help. We can discuss your puppy or kitten’s nutritional needs and provide guidance on which foods best help your pet flourish. We can also detect food allergies and offer dietary changes to ensure your pet gets the nutrition needed to remain healthy.
