Preventative Care Keeps Puppies and Kittens Healthy
We provide preventative care for kittens, puppies, and older pets.
This care includes:
- Wellness exams. Wellness exams help us catch medical conditions in their early stages. During wellness exams, we check your pet's skin, teeth, coat, heartbeat, and other physical attributes to look for evidence of illness and chronic conditions. We also check your pet's feces and blood for parasitic infection. If we find evidence of trouble, we'll make recommendations for immediate treatment.
- Dental care. Puppies and kittens start with beautiful, white teeth, but this will change with time. We start dental examinations at an early age to catch plaque buildup and periodontal disease in its early stages to help your pet maintain good dental hygiene. In addition, we teach pet owners to brush their pet's teeth at home, so they can keep their puppy or kitten's teeth clean and healthy.
- Spaying and neutering. Spaying and neutering is a way to reduce your pet's risk for diseases of the reproductive system. Spaying and neutering can also help control your pet's behavior and prevent unwanted pet pregnancies. If you're not planning to breed your puppy or kitten later in life, we recommend spaying or neutering.
- Vaccinations. Puppies and kittens need vaccinations for conditions like rabies and distemper. At Chatham Animal Hospital we offer core and non-core vaccines to protect your pet from serious illnesses and fatal diseases.
We recommend bringing your pet in for his or her first pet wellness exam at around 6 to 8 weeks of age. At that time, we'll recommend a vaccination schedule and answer any questions you may have about spaying, neutering, and general pet care.
Proper Care at Home
In addition to veterinary care, your new puppy or kitten will need proper care at home. We recommend feeding your pet food that is specially formulated for puppies or kittens. This type of food is rich in protein and is meant to be served in small portions, which makes it just right for your pet's nutritional needs.
Exercise is also an important part of your pet's care routine. Playing with your pet on a daily basis and taking your pet for walks is a great way to help your pet stay fit.
