Puppy & Kitten Care

Our Tenafly Veterinary Center team knows and understands how scary it can be to go to the veterinarian’s office. For this reason, our entire staff is dedicated to ensuring that your puppy or kitten’s first visit is a smooth one!

Puppy Care

We schedule puppy wellness exams at the following markers: 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 16 weeks. This helps our team monitor growth while preventing any kind of ailments or health concerns early on. Your puppy’s first visit at Tenafly Veterinary center will be centered around a comprehensive physical exam to make sure your new pet is happy and healthy. We also perform intestinal parasite screening on pet stool samples to make sure your pet is free of internal parasites that can cause discomfort or consume vital nutrients your pet needs to grow.

In addition to a physical exam and parasite screening, a large part of your puppy’s first visit will revolve around diet and nutrition to give you a fresh new perspective about how to feed the new addition to your family. Lastly, we will proceed with necessary vaccinations when we feel your puppy is healthy and ready.

Multi-Cat Households

In the case that a new kitten will make your home a multi-cat household, we recommend testing your kitten for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) before introducing them to your other cats. It’s important to remember that introducing a new kitten can be a slow and sometimes strenuous process since cats are inherently territorial. Patience is extremely important, so it’s key not to rush this. It’s best practice to keep your new kitten in a separate room in your home for a while so they can get used to each other's smell. If you have questions or want advice on how to best introduce a new kitten, please feel free to call us!
