When you get a puppy or a kitten, it's exciting to watch them grow. You might enjoy your nightly snuggles and playtime. However, besides love, your little guy or gal needs medical care, even if no health concerns are visibly present. When you search “veterinarian near me” or “vet near me”, we here at West Plains Animal Hospital, serving Spokane, WA, and the nearby region, can provide the care your puppy or kitty needs.
You should have your kitten or puppy examined by a veterinarian from our practice when you first bring him or her home. This allows you to detect issues early. At this pet care visit, we'll check your little one for conditions most common in the breed and their species in general at this age. At this point, we can intervene early if we find anything.
Certain illnesses are dangerous in kittens and puppies especially. And even as your pet grows up, you want to protect him or her from illness. When you find an option for a “vet near me”, you can ensure you stay up to date on your furry companion's vaccinations. We offer both core and non-core inoculations. The non-core vaccinations are only given if your pet has a certain lifestyle.
Part of this aspect of our practice also consists of evaluating your pet to ensure each vaccine is safe based on your kitten or puppy's health.
Detecting and Managing Disease
While everyone wants a healthy pet, that isn't always the case. Sometimes, a kitten or puppy may have a congenital condition or contracted an infection from his or her previous home. When you visit a veterinarian from our practice for a pet exam, we can detect these issues early and provide the necessary treatment.
On the other hand, if your pet has a chronic condition, we can start the process of managing it now. As a result, you may reduce the risk of your pet developing complications from the condition being left unmanaged.
A vital part of our kitten and puppy pet care is the patient education aspect. We can answer any questions you have about taking care of your new furry friend, even if it's with something as simple as litter or potty training.
At your pet exam, your kitten or puppy can receive all the care they need to grow healthy and strong. We offer various services in this age bracket to assist.
