South Putnam Animal Hospital

Puppy & Kitten Care

Bringing home a new puppy or kitten is such an exciting time for you and your family, and we're here to help answer any questions you may have as we get your pet started on the path to a long and healthy life. Our veterinary team is always eager to meet new pets, and will provide in-depth recommendations on the appropriate vaccines, testing, preventative medications, and ongoing care that your pet should receive. Your new pet is lucky to have you!

Caring For Your New Pet

At South Putnam Animal Hospital, we want to help our clients give their new pets a healthy start to life. Within the first day or so of bringing your pet home, be sure to give us a call and schedule your first puppy or kitten visit! This is especially important for puppies and kittens because they have greater vulnerability to diseases and illnesses. Our veterinarians are highly trained to offer services and care that keep pets protected during the first year.

Please bring any medical records you have with you to your pet's first visit.

At your pet's first visit, plan to discuss the following important health topics:

  • Vaccination schedules
  • Parasite testing and prevention
  • Spay/Neuter procedure
  • Nutritional & diet recommendations
  • Conditions puppies and kittens are susceptible to
  • House training
  • Socialization and training

Socialization Classes For Your Puppy

Our classes, or "Puppy Parties" as well call them here at South Putnam, are perfect for puppies between the ages of 7-14 weeks. These classes offer the opportunity for puppies to socialize with each other and include various talks on puppyhood including socialization, leadership, and house training. We offer classes in packages of three. Learn more about these classes and sign-up here.
