Your New Puppy or Kitten:
A Welcome Addition

Puppy & Kitten Care

Introducing a new fuzzy family member to your home is always an exciting event. Whether it’s just the two of you, or as a new addition to an already lively family, there is little in life that compares to the joy of a puppy or kitten.

Haven Lake Animal Hospital knows that joy well. We also know the responsibility that comes with your new companion, and we are prepared to help you meet the challenges of caring for your new pet. From vaccinations and having your pet spayed or neutered, to establishing a lifelong routine for wellness and dental care, our knowledgeable veterinarians and staff have the experience needed to get you off to a healthy start.

It is important to schedule a wellness check for your new puppy or kitten as soon as possible. During this time, you can review with your veterinarian any vaccinations your pet received prior to coming to live with you (if known) and set a schedule for upcoming vaccinations, depending on your pet’s age. You can also discuss any other questions or concerns you may have and develop a schedule for proper routine care.


During your initial visit, we can discuss the following pet care practices and whether they are needed for your new critter:

  • Vaccinations
  • Deworming
  • Spaying or neutering
  • Microchipping
  • Obedience consulting
  • Heartworm preventitive

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of maintaining this schedule for the lifelong health and well-being of your pet.

Please contact us to schedule an appointment. The staff at Haven Lake Animal Hospital looks forward to meeting your new addition and becoming your trusted source for lifelong veterinary care.
