Puppy & Kitten Care—Expert Care From Day One

Your pet’s health is important to us. The focus of our puppy and kitten wellness program is disease protection and prevention. Puppies and kittens receive some disease protection from their mother’s milk. However, after weaning they count on us to protect them from harmful disease. The pet experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center will start your new puppy or kitten on the road to lifelong wellness by focusing on:

  • Proper nutrition
  • Parasite preventives
  • Disease prevention

Proper Nutrition

During their first year, puppies and kittens require a diet designed to promote the proper growth and development of young muscles, bones, and teeth. This growth stage is vital to their future wellness, and they will need extra protein and a variety of specific nutrients. Puppy and kitten treats should be designed to prevent choking and intestinal upset.

At the wellness exam, we will counsel you on the proper food, treats, and exercise requirements for a happy, healthy, well-behaved pet. We will track your pet’s weight and growth progress and any changes in your pet’s response to food should be reported to your veterinarian immediately. All puppies and kittens require a constant supply of fresh, clean water.

Parasite Testing and Prevention

We take parasite detection and prevention seriously. The pet experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center customize parasite prevention plans to your pet’s specific needs and lifestyle.

Parasites may be the external variety, such as fleas and ticks, or internal parasites, such as worms. If left untreated, parasites threaten your pet’s health by damaging major organs and the digestive system. This can lead to long-term health issues or even death.

Puppy or kitten wellness exams include thorough testing and monitoring for infestations. We recommend the least invasive treatment plan required to protect your pet’s health. If you suspect a parasite problem, please contact us, or bring your puppy or kitten in for an exam as soon as possible.

Prevention Through Vaccination

Young pets require a series of vaccinations during the first year of life to protect them from life-threatening diseases. The professionals of Springbrook Animal Care Center will tailor your vaccination protocol to address the exact needs of your puppy or kitten, and eliminate over vaccination.

Important vaccinations for your puppy may include:

  • DA2PPL4—Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus, Leptospirosis
  • Bordetella—Tracheobronchitis or kennel cough
  • Lyme disease
  • Rabies
  • Influenza

Important vaccinations for your kitten may include:

  • Feline panleukopenia—Feline distemper
  • Feline respiratory diseases—Rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, chlamydia
  • FeLV—Feline leukemia
  • Rabies
