Puppy and Kitten Wellness Exams
Wellness Exams in Highlands Ranch, CO
There is nothing more exciting than bringing a new puppy or kitten into your home. They add energy and fun and are a source of unceasing affection as they bond with you and your family.
New pets also require a little extra attention to ensure they get a good, healthy start at life. Comprehensive physical exams at key developmental stages are important, as well as time-and veterinarian-tested advice on housebreaking and training.
During your puppy or kitten’s first year, we recommend an initial wellness exam to determine the medical and nutritional needs of your new companion. We believe it is very important to take a balanced and individualized approach to vaccinating your kitten or puppy. We spread vaccine visits throughout your pet’s first few months of life to ensure that his or her immune system responds correctly to each immunization.
At each visit, your puppy or kitten will be given a complete physical examination. The examination will enable the doctor to determine if there are any important changes or problems as your new companion grows. We feel these examinations are an extremely important part of your first few pet visits to our hospital. These visits and examinations are just as important as any vaccination to allow your puppy or kitten to grow up strong, healthy, and well-adjusted. These visits are also important times to let the doctor know of any concerns or questions you may have regarding your new pet.
