Animal Medical & Surgical Center provides veterinary primary care tailored to your new puppy or kitten. Routine wellness visits help your pet get started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy or kitten’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help them grow into a well-mannered, healthy, and happy pet including information and advice on nutrition, housebreaking, and behavior.
Puppy Primary Care
Schedule your puppy for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Your new puppy will require a series of vaccines, to ensure they are protected from serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new dog is protected against:
- Bordetella (kennel cough)
Kitten Primary Care
Schedule your kitten for an exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, they are susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make recommendations based on lifestyle risks to ensure your new pet is protected against:
- Panleukopenia (distemper)
- Feline leukemia virus (FeLV)
- Rhinotracheitis virus
Parasite Tests and Treatments for Puppies and Kittens
Parasites can be a problem for pets, and some puppies and kittens may have roundworms. Roundworms are intestinal parasites that can cause coughing, weight loss, and a potbellied appearance.
It is important for new pets to be treated for roundworms, not only to help rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms and certain other parasites can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your new pet is properly treated, you can keep your entire family safe.
