Oakland Park Animal Hospital Providing Care for Your New Puppy or Kitten
Oakland Park Animal Hospital is the best choice for your veterinarian in Oakland Park. We specialized in the care and raising of newborn to 1-year-olds. Puppies and kittens need a different type of care than older pets. Nutrition, vaccines, and check-ups for baby animals are just as important as they are for human little ones. Our loving, compassionate staff will go the extra mile to protect and grow your puppy or kitty to a healthy, happy adult.
Services We Offer:
- Exam - At the initial visit, our veterinarian, Dr. Spencer L. Ratnoff, will check your pet for illness, disease and to make sure there are no birth defects or bone issues. Your puppy or kitten will be weighed to gage growth from that point on. The doctor will look at your pet's teeth and gums to ascertain that they are healthy.
- Vaccines - There is a recommended regimen of core vaccinations that will guard against many deadly diseases. Your vet will educate you on the additional shots you may want to consider based on your pet's lifestyle and encounters with other animals as well as wildlife.
- Spay/Neuter - Many pet owners are not interested in breeding their dog/cat. If that is the case for you, we can perform spay/neuter services to prevent unwanted pregnancies and protect from reproductive cancers. In addition, spay/neutering often stabilizes an animal's personality.
- Microchipping - If your beloved family member gets lost, a microchip will help to locate him/her. Most vets and shelters will scan a lost animal for free so microchipping is a quick way to get reunited with your escape artist pet.
- Nutrition - Making sure your pet gets the proper nutrition is a vital part of kitten and puppy care. Our veterinarians can advise you on the best course of action to make sure your baby gets all it needs.
- Deworming - Young ones are much more prone to illness due to parasites. A big part of puppy and kitten care is to have a vet deworm your pet to protect against these pesky creatures.
- Fleas, ticks and heartworms - Up to 4 weeks of age, animals do not need protection. After that, your vet can prescribe the correct dosage of preventative to guard your baby as they grow.
