Puppy and Kitten Care

Puppy and Kitten

First off, congratulations on welcoming new puppies or kittens into your home. These adorable creatures will surely bring you lots of joy. However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows with puppies and kittens.

If you're a pet owner, then you know that taking care of puppies and kittens can be a lot of work. Not only do you need to feed them, but also exercise, and care for them regularly. If you aren't sure how to properly take care of your furry friends, worry not; we're here to help.

At the Animal Health Center of Land O' Lakes serving Land O’ Lakes, FL, we want the absolute best for your puppies and kittens. That's why we'll be highlighting a few tips for taking care of these adorable fuzzballs to ensure they grow into healthy dogs and cats.

Prepare for Their Arrival

The first and most important step is to make sure your home is ready for a puppy or kitten. This includes everything from having the right food and supplies to ensuring your home is safe and clean.

If you're bringing home a puppy, you'll need to have your home pet-proofed in advance. This means removing anything that might be harmful to them, such as chemicals, medications, and small objects they could choke on. You'll also want to make sure you have a designated area for them to sleep and eat in.

Nutrition Is Important

As we all know, a healthy diet is essential for any living creature, puppies and kittens included. It's important to do your research in advance to figure out what type of food is best for your new pet. Alternatively, you can ask a veterinarian on our team to give you recommendations on what works for your tiny fuzz balls and what doesn't.

Schedule Regular Veterinarian Visits

Regular check-ups will help ensure they're on track developmentally and that your toddler pets don't have any underlying health conditions. If a vet on our team can pick it up early so your puppies and/or kittens can receive prompt treatment.
