Young animals need that little bit of extra care and attention at the beginning of their lives, to ensure they grow up happy and healthy in our families. When a pet first arrives home, it is an exciting and wonderful time, but it can also a busy and daunting time as you learn about the needs of your puppy or kitten. Young animals often have more specific healthcare needs than adult animals, and can be more seriously affected by infection, injury or parasites. Also, training puppies and kittens is very important for their contentment in our homes, and for your peace of mind. At Merewether Veterinary Hospital, our experienced team is ready to guide you through the important first year of your pet’s life, and beyond.
