When you see the holiday through your pet’s eyes, the big guy in the red suit may seem kind of frightening. And that’s not all - the home filled with scents of tasty but possibly unhealthy and dangerous foods, the noise of the door opening and closing as guests arrive makes their hearts race, strangers scare them, and ornaments look an awful lot like toys. Plus there’s the tree - which looks like an indoor bathroom to your dog.
New Puppy or Kitten?
Congratulations on the newest addition to your family! We know that adding a new puppy or kitten to your household is an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. Don’t worry, we’re here to walk with you through this journey! Your new pet should start his or her veterinary visits at around 8 weeks of age. During this first appointment, the doctor can ask any questions that you have, give you advice on training and any behavioral issues, get your pet started on a vaccination schedule that will protect him/her from potentially deadly diseases, and run a stool sample to check for any intestinal parasites which can be passed from the mother to your bundle of joy.
