Puppies & Kittens
We Can’t Wait to See Your New Pet
Now that you have a new puppy or kitten, Best Friends Animal Health Center wants you to keep him or her happy and healthy. The best way to do this is to start at the beginning with a new pet exam.
Ideally, we want you to bring your new pet to see us at the age of 6-8 weeks. Early prevention can reduce the chance of serious, possibly life long illness.
We will give your new kitty a complete physical examination. We will run a fecal analysis screening for parasites, treating as needed based on results. A blood test for feline leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) will be performed at an appropriate age. Vaccinations for the following will be given every 3-4 weeks until 16 weeks of age:
Puppies will be given a complete physical examination. We will request a fecal sample for parasite screening as well. Vaccinations to protect your puppy against disease are easy to get and part of making sure that your pet grows to be a vigorous adult dog. These vaccines prevent against the following diseases and are given every 3-4 weeks until over 16 weeks of age:
Best Friends Animal Health Center also offers microchips for permanent identification. Our staff will register your pet for you so that you don’t have that “one more thing” to do with a new kitten or puppy. Our microchips are registered for your pets' lifetime, with no additional cost after it is placed and registered.
Best Friends Animal Health Center’s veterinarians look forward to creating a long and happy relationship with your pet and with you!
