Puppies and kittens need special care in order to grow up healthy and strong! Wellness care, dental care, and other preventative services can help protect your pet from illnesses, diseases, and infections. It's also important to provide the proper diet, nutrition, and exercise at home. At Animal Health Group, we do our best to educate pet owners about puppy and kitten care in Staten Island and Bayonne.
Bring your puppy or kitten to the veterinarian at least once annually for a pet wellness exam. These important check-ups help your pet's Staten Island veterinarian catch medical conditions in their early stages. In addition, wellness exams are important for catching parasitic infections, weight problems and other issues that can affect your pet's health and well-being.
Spaying and neutering can help control pet population in the community. In addition, spaying or neutering your puppy can help control your pet's behavior and reduce your pet's risk for certain diseases later in life. If you have no plans to breed your pet as an adult, we recommend spaying or neutering your pet sometime in the first six months of their life.
At Animal Health Group, we offer core and non-core vaccinations for puppies and kittens. Our core vaccinations, like the rabies vaccine, are given to all pets. Non-core vaccinations are only given to pets who are a risk for certain illnesses. We'll help you determine which vaccinations are right for your pet at his or her first wellness exam.
Pet dental care is very important. At Animal Health Group we examine your pet’s teeth and provide cleanings for pets in need of one. We recommend bringing your pet in for dental exams starting from young adulthood.
In addition, we recommend that puppies and kittens are taught to behave for tooth brushing at home. If you have questions about how to train your pet to accept tooth brushing, talk to us at your pet's first wellness exam. We'll show you the best ways to brush your pet's teeth without getting nipped.
Puppies and kittens should eat food specially formulated for baby cats and dogs. This type of food is loaded with protein and other vitamins and is meant to be served in portions small enough for your pet to consume. In addition, your pet should be exercised multiple times each day. Take your pet for walks or play with your pet to ensure that he or she maintains a healthy weight.
