Puppy and Kitten Care
New puppies and kittens are a bundle of joy! To ensure your new puppy or kitten starts off on the right track to good health, we recommend bringing them to Premier Veterinary Care and Resort for their first wellness visit as soon as possible. Our doctors will go over what you can expect in their first year of life and answer all your questions regarding vaccinations, nutrition, and growth.
Senior Pet Care
Pets are considered senior when they reach about 7 years of age. At Premier Veterinary Care and Resort, we understand older pets have special needs and benefit from extra attention and care. We offer complete physical exams, bloodwork, urinalysis, and digital x-rays to evaluate their internal health. We also review nutrition/dietary needs and discuss what to do if you notice any changes in your senior pet's mobility, behavior, or appetite.
