Puppy And Kitten Awareness

Caring for a new puppy or kitten can be very exciting, however, it does require a bit of work to ensure your pet remains in the best of health. Take your pet to Pinecrest Veterinary Clinic for all of your pet’s veterinary care needs. We are located in Johnson City, but we also serve Elizabethton and the surrounding areas. Here is some information about puppy and kitten care.

Prepare With the Right Supplies

Puppies and kittens require a few important supplies to keep them comfortable. This includes a water bowl and a food dish for feeding time. Formulate the right amount of food and snacks for your pet. A kitten will need a litter box filled with litter. Make sure to clean the litter box at least once a day. A puppy will need to have a leash so it can be walked outside and get some exercise. Cat and dog toys are also important to have so that your pet can actively play.

Perform a Safety Check for Your Pet

Make sure to inspect all areas of the house for unsafe items that can cause an injury for your pet. Look for sharp objects and small items, and remove them so that your puppy or kitten does not become hurt accidently. Lock medications in cabinets and keep plants out of reach. There are some poisonous plants that can make your pet very sick. If your pup or kit ingest a harmful substance or happen to get injured, contact our animal hospital right away.
