It doesn’t take long for your puppy to become an irreplaceable part of the family. Already, you may dream of long morning walks around the neighborhood, playful afternoons at the park, and cozy evenings with your pup curled at your feet.
To ensure your puppy meets his potential and lives a long life by your side, start building healthy habits now. Yearly wellness exams and vaccinations are a good place to start.
The team at Montpelier Veterinary Hospital is happy for you and can’t wait to meet your new addition. Our hope is that you will call soon to create a healthcare plan for your puppy. Our veterinary professionals have all the experience, technology, and knowledge you want for your sweet furry friend.
Hopefully, your puppy received veterinary attention before he came into your care. Initial health checks begin around three weeks of age while vaccinations are first administered at the six week mark. If you are unsure of your puppy’s medical background, don’t hesitate to call. We can help your pet catch up or move forward with the recommended health timeline.
At your first appointment, we will perform a thorough examination. Puppies are vulnerable to disease because their immune systems are still developing. If you have any veterinary records or notes on the animal’s history, please bring those with you.
We will make sure your puppy is healthy before we move forward with vaccinations, dewormers, and other preventative treatments. If you have any questions for us or would like to make an initial appointment, please call.
Take one look at your sweet, fluffy kitten and you may notice that she is feisty but vulnerable. With her tiny paws and frail body, your kitten is susceptible to diseases, parasites, and injury - especially if she does not receive adequate support during this formative time.
Generally, kittens are most at risk of developing these health issues:
You can provide your full support by building healthy habits from the get-go. Start by bringing your kitten in for a wellness exam with us.
At this first exam, we will do a full checkup to ensure that your kitten’s baseline is healthy and strong. We will check her weight, listen to her heart, and examine her eyes, ears, mouth, and coat. Then, we will move forward with preventative measures like vaccination and deworming.
Our team will keep a sharp eye out for any underlying issues and we will create a treatment plan when needed. If your pet requires laboratory testing, surgery, or dietary assistance, we can perform it all in-house. Trust us to work tirelessly until your kitten is back on a healthy path.
You can call today to schedule an initial wellness exam. Be ready to bring certain items along with you, such as a stool sample and previous vet records. The more information we can obtain about your kitten’s history, the better. This will give us a more accurate picture of her health and wellness.
