San Antonio Puppy & Kitten Care: A Healthy Start for New Pets in the San Antonio Area
At Leon Valley Veterinary Hospital, puppies and kittens get a healthy start. From vaccines to spay and neuter surgery, we provide everything your youngster needs.
Puppy & Kitten Exams
We see your puppy and kitten several times during the first year of life, to determine health status, treat for parasites, give vaccinations that provide protection from disease, and assess the need for dental care. At these visits, we offer information to pet owners about nutrition, pet behavior, grooming, and much more. We also discuss our recommendations for microchipping and spay or neuter surgery.
Wellness testing helps maintain your pet's health and prevent disease by promoting early detection and treatment of illnesses. By establishing a baseline, we can closely monitor your pet's health status annually. Testing a small amount of blood and fresh urine sample can easily determine the baseline. A comprehensive health profile consists of:
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Complete chemistry and electrolytes
- Feline AIDS and leukemia test (indoor/outdoor felines only)
We then compare these results to later results. After the baseline has been established, we monitor these systems with yearly health exams.
