Puppy & Kitten Care

Puppies and kittens are fun additions to any home. However, like anything else, they require special care. Our team at the Animal Wellness Center of Bonita is committed to helping new pet owners provide their new pets proper puppy care and kitten care. A healthy pet is a happy pet. Before you bring your new furry friend home, make sure you’ve done your research, and prepared to move your new pet in.

Basic Pet Supplies

Before you bring your new furry friend home, there are certain supplies you should purchase. You will need a carrying case for your pet to transport him or her home. You will also need feeding bowls, food, and supplies for potty training. A kitten will need a litter box, while a puppy may need newspaper or other potty-training tools. You will also need to familiarize yourself with behaviors and cures that let you know when your pet has to go to the bathroom. Young animals, particularly puppies, chew on a lot of different things. Instead of letting your puppy chew on your new sneakers, buy toys for them instead. Just make sure that the toys you buy are safe and appropriate.

Other Considerations

Young animals require a lot of care and attention during the first year of life. Pay attention to their behaviors and needs. This focus and attention will pay off in the long run and help you to create healthy habits with and for your pet. A little bit of tender loving care will go a long way.

Contact Your Veterinarian

You will also need to bring your puppy or kitten to the veterinarian to make sure he or she is up to date on shots. Our veterinarian will give your new pet what he or she needs according to their age as well as other issues that may be present. Good puppy care and kitten care always includes attention to their health. At Animal Wellness Center of Bonita, our veterinarian is committed to making sure new pet owners in Bonita Springs have everything they need to give new puppies and kittens a healthy start.
