Bringing home a new puppy or kitten is an exciting time for your family. The Paws of Pleasanton Animal Hospital team can help you start your new puppy or kitten off on the right paw!
Our team recommends that you set up your pet’s first visit with us soon after adoption. It’s important to get your new pet set up with a good parasite and vaccination program as well as a thorough examination to assure your puppy or kitten is healthy and prepared to stay that way. We will provide a customized care plan that includes vaccinations and care recommendations.
Starting puppy and kitten vaccinations and keeping them on a schedule is critical to protecting their fragile systems from the most common diseases.
Puppies and kittens eat or sniff at many things that can carry the eggs for internal parasites. Checking yearly for intestinal worms and administering necessary treatments is an important means for assuring your puppy or kitten will be able to absorb nutrients and grow from the food you provide.
Spay and Neuter
We usually recommend spaying or neutering at six months of age to both prevent unwanted pregnancies and to reduce the risk of other health problems. There are of course exceptions to that rule and our veterinarians will have an open discussion with you to decide on the best time to spay your neuter your particular dog or cat.
