Veterinarian's Advice on Raising Puppies and Kittens

Raising a puppy or a kitten can be an incredibly rewarding, yet challenging, endeavor. Thankfully, our veterinarian here at Kindred Care Pet Hospital in Richmond, TX has some information for you that will help make your endeavors much easier. As always, we encourage you to bring your puppies and kittens to our facility whenever they need checkups or care.

Veterinarian Advice on Bringing a Puppy or Kitten Home

Bringing your puppy or kitten home can be very exciting. However, you want to make sure that your home has all the accommodations necessary. Make sure to check off this list to ensure that you have all the necessary items available for your new furry friend:

  • Food bowl
  • A litter box for cat
  • Bedding or blankets to lay on
  • Designated food for puppies or kittens

Staying on top of veterinary visits is crucial for your puppy or kitten. Visit us here at Kindred Care Pet Hospital to schedule regular appointments where we can set you up with a care plan. Vaccinations are one of the most important things that you can give to your puppies or kittens. We will provide you with the right information that you need to keep your pet safe and healthy.

Finally, having fun with your pets and socializing with them is very important. While you need to wait to take your puppies to the park and socialize them with other dogs until they have all of their canine parvovirus vaccine shots, you can still play with them indoors as well as with your kittens. Spending time with your pets each day is important to develop a lasting relationship with the new furry member of your family.
