Celebrate Your New Pet with Complete Puppy & Kitten Care
Appropriate health care gives your puppy or kitten a healthy start in life, initiating a pattern of preventive care that will last a lifetime. Duxbury Animal Hospital has developed the finest in puppy and kitten protocols designed to help your newest animal companions develop into healthy, happy, and active adult pets.
New Pets Deserve a Healthy Start
Every year, dogs and cats age the equivalent of 3–10 human years, depending on age, breed, and lifestyle. For good health, our adult pet patients receive a full physical examination every year until 7 years of age. Until reaching the adult stage, however, puppies and kittens face numerous health challenges that require diligence and specialized care.
Your young pet is carefully examined by our veterinarian several times during the first year of life, to initiate preventive protocols and identify any problems that may impede proper development and overall health. This schedule of care begins around 8 weeks of age, and reflects Duxbury Animal Hospital’s current wellness recommendations for our youngest canine and feline companions.
