Puppy and Kitten Care with our Wichita Falls Veterinarian

puppy and kitten

Now that you have a new puppy or kitten scampering through the house, you may marvel at how energetic and healthy he seems -- but you still need to take some important steps to help keep him in that condition. If you've never owned a baby animal before, you may not be familiar with the kinds of wellness care you need to provide. Fortunately, you have expert guidance right here at Callfield Companion Animal Clinic. Either Wichita Falls veterinarian at our clinic can provide preventative puppy and kitten care to help your little friend grow up in good health.

Primary Considerations for Kitten and Puppy Care

Kittens and puppies face specific challenges as they experience rapid growth and enter a not-always-healthy world for the first time. That's why we offer such essentials of kitten and puppy care as:

  • Wellness exams - Periodic wellness exams allow us to establish your pet's baseline health, catch any issues that need immediate attention, and monitor your pet's growth and development.
  • Vaccinations - All puppies require core vaccinations against hepatitis, rabies, parvovirus and distemper. All kittens should be vaccinated against calicivirus, rabies, rhinotracheitis and panleukopenia. Your puppy or kitten may also need certain elective vaccinations to guard against conditions such as feline leukemia or kennel cough. We administer multiple rounds of vaccinations to kick-start your pet's immune system into manufacturing protective antibodies.
  • Parasite control - De-worming is often necessary for puppies and kittens who have "inherited" these parasites from their mothers. Preventative medications will prevent new parasites from gaining a foothold in your pet's body.
  • Spaying and neutering - Spaying and neutering can be performed when your pet is just 8 weeks old. The earlier we sterilize your puppy or kitten, the more fully your pet can benefit from its effects, from reduced cancer risk to freedom from compulsive mating behaviors.
  • Special diet considerations - Puppies and kittens need a lot of calories, so you may need to feed them up to 4 times a day at first. We can recommend products that contain the specific mix of nutrients your little friend needs, along with recommended feeding schedules.
  • Behavior training and socialization - Puppies and kittens must learn how to get along with humans and other animals, from mastering correct toilet habits to being alone without experience separation anxiety. We can help you turn your pet into a good citizen.

If all this wellness care sounds like a lot to handle, give yourself a break in the form of pet insurance. You can select a level of coverage to ensure that you're always able to care for your puppy and kitten properly, even after he reaches adulthood.
