Harvester Veterinary Hospital of Burr Ridge

Puppy & Kitten Care

Your new puppy or kitten is a precious new member of your family, and we’re here to help you provide all of the care they need to set them up for a long, happy, and healthy life - from screening for parasites to administering vaccinations that will keep them safe.

Puppy Care

There are few things as exciting - or as overwhelming - as bringing home a brand new puppy. Puppies are adorable, hilarious, rambunctious, and lovable, but they’re also a lot of work. That also extends to their medical needs, including vaccinations and other preventative measures designed to keep them healthy and safe.

Fortunately, you don’t have to care for your new pup’s health alone. Our expert team will outline a full early life care schedule for your puppy’s first few months during their first visit. We’ll establish a health baseline, recommend vaccination schedules, and offer additional services such as microchipping, deworming, and more. We’ll also discuss spaying or neutering when the time comes, helping you make an informed decision about the best time to spay or neuter your pet to prevent unwanted pregnancies and other undesirable behaviors and side-effects.

Plus, we’ll simply be here as a resource you can use whenever you have questions about being the best possible owner for your pup. At every wellness visit, feel free to ask any and all questions about everything from your pup’s physical health to their behaviors and our expert team will be happy to help!

Kitten Care

There are few things more adorable than a kitten, but they’re more than just lovable balls of fur. They also need plenty of support and attention from both you and our veterinary team. We recommend bringing in your new kitten for a baseline medical exam as soon as possible, sometimes before bringing them to your home. At this check-up, we’ll examine their overall health and provide a recommended vaccination schedule for their first year to keep them healthy, happy, and free from diseases or viruses.

Cats that will be living in households with other cats require special attention. It’s important that they are tested for both feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). We recommend that you have your cat tested before bringing it home to your other cats and potentially exposing them to these dangerous conditions.
