Forever Vets Animal Hospital Offers Puppy & Kitten Care
If you have recently acquired a new kitten or puppy, our veterinarian in Orlando can help you ensure they have the best start in life. Proper puppy and kitten care can help your pet to grow up, strong, healthy, and well-adjusted. At Forever Vets Animal Hospital in Orlando, FL, we provide care for the special needs of young kittens and puppies.
Your kitten’s first visit to the vet allows him to get a clean bill of health and familiarizes him with being handled and examined. Your vet will check for internal parasites that can undermine your kitten’s nutrition and health. The vet can also provide the proper immunizations to prevent common infectious diseases that can be very dangerous for young animals. In the early months, a kitten’s immune system is not fully developed, which leaves your kitten vulnerable to many diseases. The vet will also check for external parasites, discuss proper nutrition for growing cats, and advise you on socializing your new friend.
During a puppy’s first visit to the vet, he will be carefully examined your for any abnormalities that could affect proper development. In addition, the vet will look for any eye, ear, or nose infections that your puppy may have picked up while in the litter. If the puppy is old enough, the proper immunizations will be administered to ensure the most common and deadly infectious diseases never affect him. Our veterinarian in Hunter's Creek will also test your puppy for intestinal worms and discuss flea and tick control to avoid pests and their related diseases.
Safety Measures for Young Pets
Young animals are very curious and physically active. These qualities can put them into dangerous situations that can cause injury. Give your home a careful inspection for hazards that could endanger the life and health of your new pet. This can be done by hiding electrical cords behind furniture or under rugs, putting away hazardous chemicals in closed cabinets, and ensuring your doorways do not allow escape. If you have other pets, keep them separate from your new pet until they can be gradually introduced to one another. Keeping your cat indoors and never allowing your dog outdoors without a leash are good ways to your new pet’s safety.
