New Puppy & Kitten Wellness Care


veterinary pediatric careWestlake Animal Hospital understands the importance of starting out your new puppy or kitten with proper veterinary care. We have designed Westlake Animal Hospital with your pet in mind, and we have implemented many innovative ideas to support your pet’s health care needs, such as a separate cat entrance, concierge service, onsite pharmacy, and the latest in diagnostic and surgical equipment.

Puppy and Kitten Wellness Care

Puppy and kitten wellness exams are an important first step in your pet’s health care routine. Your pet’s first visit will include a comprehensive physical exam and nutritional and behavioral counseling, as well as intestinal parasite testing, disease testing, and the first series of vaccinations.

Spay and Neutering

We recommend spaying or neutering your puppy or kitten as well as removing any retained baby teeth. This is also the perfect opportunity to add a pet microchip. In addition to preventing unwanted pregnancy, there are many health benefits, including protecting them against harmful diseases such as reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer.

Pet Microchipping

We highly recommend pet microchipping to provide peace of mind in the event your pet is lost. A pet microchip can be implanted at any time, and the procedure does not require surgery or anesthesia. The microchip is injected with a syringe just under the skin, and your pet feels minimal discomfort similar to receiving a vaccination.

The microchip contains a unique code that can be read by a scanner. When your pet is found, the scanning shelter or clinic will look up the code in the database registry. Your contact details will be displayed, and arrangements will be made to return your pet.

Learn more about microchips by visiting the HomeAgain website.

Westlake Animal Hospital is accepting new clients, and we look forward to meeting you and your new pet. Please contact us to make an appointment or for answers to any questions you may have regarding our puppy and kitten wellness care services.
