Congratulations on your new puppy or kitten! The Team at Westover Animal Clinic are excited to be a part of your new family member, and are happy to get you started on the right path. Whenever you acquire a new puppy or kitten, it is important to schedule a physical examination as soon as possible. Our Veterinarians will do a complete check-over, checking for fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites or any other health problems to ensure that your new family member is healthy. Puppies and kittens are especially vulnerable to parasitic infections that can threaten their health. Proper screening and preventative products can help protect them against many types of parasites.
Juvenile pets also have immature immune systems which makes it difficult to fight of disease. Following our recommended vaccine protocols can help to ensure that your new puppy or kitten develops into a healthy young adult. Call us today for an appointment today!
