Puppies & Kittens


Just as the needs of infants are different than those of teen-agers, animal babies need different care than their older counterparts. Because of their size, they are much more susceptible to dehydration and other ailments. These conditions, which in older animals can cause discomfort, in young animals can actually cause death.

At Arbor View Veterinary Clinic, we suggest that you bring your new puppy or kitten in to see us by seven weeks of age. At the initial visit we will recommend a health plan for your puppy or kitten based on its specific needs This tailored approach to developing a vaccine and treatment schedule depends on your new pet’s breed, overall health and his or her anticipated environment.

Again, animal babies are just like human babies in that they are quite susceptible to viruses, parasites and disease. Therefore, we want to get them vaccinated early.

We want to be a special part of your pet’s life right from the start. Ensuring a long, healthy and happy life is our goal.
