Welcoming a new pet to your home involves many things, from picking out your puppy or kitten to buying the proper accessories. Greenhaven Animal Clinic helps you give your pet a great start and supports you during that first crucial year of life. We offer guidance and services in a variety of pet care areas, including:
While our vaccination and parasite prevention protocols follow current veterinary guidelines, each pet is unique. We tailor your veterinary care to meet the needs and requirements for your special pet, considering pet type–such as working dog or house pet–as well as breed, size, overall condition, and lifestyle issues.
Pet nutrition is critical, especially for the youngsters. Your Greenhaven veterinarian will advise you about the proper food and treats for your pet at this important stage of life, when growth is so rapid–inside and out.
Home dental care for puppies and kittens is best begun immediately upon bringing your new pet home as an enjoyable part of the socialization process. We are happy to share techniques and recommend products for this often overlooked part of basic pet care.
Housebreaking and training your pet is a process, and there are many techniques for making it relatively simple. See us for guidance and tips about your particular circumstances. A well-trained pet is a happy pet, and that makes the pet owner happy, too!
Spaying or neutering your puppy or kitten has many benefits, resulting in a longer, healthier life and a generally happier pet. Visit our Wellness page for more about this healthy decision.
We encourage you to discuss any pet care issues and medical concerns with us at every visit and hope the following tips will help you get off to a good start.
