Farmingdale Dog & Cat Clinic

Puppy & Kitten Care

Caring for a puppy or kitten requires special attention— and not just when it comes to trying to keep them from going potty inside! Your young pet’s healthcare is especially important at this early stage of life, which is why we recommend specialized puppy and kitten wellness care at Farmingdale Dog and Cat Clinic.

Puppy Care

Farmingdale Dog and Cat Clinic is always excited when our clients bring home a brand new puppy, and we’re even more excited to offer our expertise to help your new pup get the best possible start to a healthy life.

Our first step is to recommend an initial health exam, where we’ll complete a nose-to-tail physical examination to check in on your puppy’s overall health. We’ll also recommend vaccinations based on your dog’s lifestyle, age, previous vaccines, and other unique circumstances.

Recommend vaccines often include:

  • Distemper hepatitis
  • Parvovirus
  • Rabies
  • Bordatella
  • Parainfluenza

We’re also here to answer any questions you have about your puppy’s health, dietary needs, and even behavior. Congratulations on your brand new member of the family!

Kitten Care

Many people like cats as pets because they tend to be independent, relatively low-maintenance pets. But the same isn’t true of kittens, who need lots of attention and care in their early months.

Don’t worry— Farmingdale Dog and Cat Clinic is your partner in providing everything your kitten needs for a healthy start to life.

Step one is a wellness exam with one of our expert vets, examining your kitten for any signs of health issues and establishing a basic baseline of health for future visits. At this exam, we’ll also recommend a vaccination schedule to protect your kitten’s health now and in the future. Like dogs, cats are susceptible to a range of viruses and diseases if not properly vaccinated early in life.

Finally, we’ll provide special guidance for you as an owner to help your cat acclimate to their new life with you. For example, kittens being introduced into homes with other cats often require a careful approach so that they can acclimate and feel comfortable with one another. If you have any questions about topics like these, or anything relating to your new kitten’s health and wellness, we’ll be more than happy to answer them at your appointment.

Spay/Neuter Procedure

At Farmingdale Dog & Cat Clinic, we want your pets to live a long, happy, and healthy life. That’s why we recommend spay/neuter procedures for all dogs and cats under our care. The health and behavioral outcomes of this procedure benefit not only your pet, but also you and your family! By reducing the risk of disease and infection, unwanted pregnancy, sexual instincts and related undesirable behaviors, your pet can actually live a longer life.

Your pet’s comfort and safety is our #1 priority. Our veterinarians are highly experienced to perform the safest procedures and rigorously monitor vitals and pain from pre-surgical procedure to post-operative care. We are highly trained to control, prevent, and promptly treat any pain associated with your pet’s procedure.

Microchipping

Proper identification makes all of the difference for lost pets. For complete protection, we highly encourage collars, ID tags, and microchips. While collars and ID tags are not foolproof, any form of identification helps your pet find their way home in case of an accident. At Farmingdale Dog & Cat Clinic, we believe all pets should have microchips—even indoor pets!

There is no harm in microchipping your pet. Microchips are implanted between the shoulder blades with a quick injection that’s similar to a routine vaccination. This way, if your pet is lost and brought to an animal shelter, animal rescue, or veterinary facility, their microchip can be scanned and your contact information will be revealed.

Be sure to register your pet’s microchip with your contact information! Without this important information, a found pet may be unable to find their way back to you.
