Puppy and Kitten Care
Becoming a new pet parent can be an exciting time. If you have recently become a new caretaker of a puppy or kitten, MVS Pet Care, located in Tampa, Florida is here to help you with questions about the care and health of your new pet.
Puppy and Kitten Care
Many new pet owners underestimate the importance of puppy care and kitten care received in the first few months of their life. These early stages set the tone of your pet’s future health. It is important to note that puppy and kitten care is often quite different from the type of care a full-grown pet would need. Our veterinary staff serving Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties are well-trained to help you navigate this critical time in your pet’s life.
Once you bring your new fur baby home, it is important that you have your puppy or kitten evaluated. This initial evaluation will help determine if your pet has any pre-existing conditions which will need treatment or medications.
If your puppy or kitten is old enough, your veterinarian will be able to begin vaccinations for your new pet, which will help protect them from common diseases.
Vaccinations are an especially important part of establishing a healthy life for your new pet. Getting your puppy or kitten started on their vaccines early is the best way to avoid preventable diseases and illnesses which negatively impact their health.
Many pet owners do not realize the difference in feeding needs for puppies and kittens compared to their older counterparts. Ensuring your new puppy or kitten is receiving the proper nutrition is crucial for their health and development. The MVS Pet Care veterinary team serving Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties will be able to discuss with you the proper feeding and nutritional needs for your new pet at your initial visit.
One important aspect of puppy and kitten care is to have your animal’s behavior evaluated. Our veterinary team will be able to assess if your new pet has any behavioral problems and answer any questions you may have. You may not be able to determine every behavioral problem early on, but these evaluations enable early intervention for any problematic behaviors and allows them to be addressed before they become a more serious issue later on.
