Start a Lifetime of Good Health With Puppy & Kitten Care

Congratulations on your new family member! We’d like nothing better than to meet your new pet and set him or her on a path of good health.

It is not uncommon for puppies and kittens to have worms, fleas, ear mites, and other issues. So, please try to schedule your first appointment within 72 hours of bringing your “youngster” home.

We’ll wish to see your puppy four times and your kitten three times to administer vaccinations and for exams. After these three or four visits, we’ll see your pet just once annually (providing your pet stays well).
