Kittens and Puppies Oh My! They are cute and cuddly but wow, what a lot of work they are.
Summer is upon us and that means puppies and kittens. The kids are out of school, vacations are planned and there is extra time to spend with a new puppy or kitten. The puppy or kitten is adopted and then a cold dose of reality sets in such as: feeding (What to feed?), feeding schedule, potty training/litter box training, vaccinations (Parvo virus), deworming (parasites) and puppy kitten behavior problems. Thats where myself and my veterinary team come into play. The entire family or just a few family members pack into the exam room with their new pet. We book out at least 30 minutes for the exam to discuss all the different questions that you may have. If you don’t have questions then I ask you a bunch, such as how is potty training going? Are you getting any sleep? That is when the floodgates open and you and your family members pour out the questions. Great! There is no such thing as a dumb question. I don’t want you to suffer from a dog like my dog Boo who counter-surfs or jumps on my houseguests. Or like my mother’s adult pug that was very slow to potty train and ruined a lot of carpets before she was finally trained. Or that kitten that turns into the cat that ruins your favorite chair with their nails. I just don’t want you and your family to suffer through puppy or kitten hood but to enjoy your puppy or kitten while they grow and mature into a well behaved healthy adult pet.
