Gentle is indeed the operative word when it comes to the care of your precious puppy or kitten and that’s what we’re about at Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital. In fact, your Las Vegas veterinarian welcomes every pet as a member of our own family with care that reaches beyond standard clinical treatment to embracing each pet’s emotion needs.
The Best Las Vegas Pet Care for Your Puppy & Kitten
Your beloved young pet is extremely defenseless against serious and potentially life-threatening diseases and parasites. We provide the very best in Las Vegas pet care for your young pet and work with you to employ a preventive care regimen that includes nutritional guidance, parasite control and disease prevention.
Puppy & Kitten Nutritional Guidance
Good health, shiny coats, strong bones and ample energy all begin with proper nutrition. As a youngster, your pet needs lots of protein to support the growth of all body systems. However, not all breeds have the same nutritional requirements. One critically important thing is to avoid feeding your puppy or kitten any kind of human food which can be harmful. Also, keep him or her away from any treats that could potentially cause choking. In addition, always having fresh water available is essential. When you come for your regular visits, we will ensure your pet is gaining the right amount of weight, that his or her coat is shiny, the teeth, strong and bones developing properly. Here at your Las Vegas animal hospital, we will provide you with the complete nutritional support and guidance to ensure your pet grows into healthy and happy dog or cat.
There is nothing worse than watching your pet constantly scratching and being generally miserable. In addition to the external pests such as fleas and ticks, puppies and kittens are also vulnerable to the damaging effects of internal parasites, including worms. One of the many benefits of regular visits to your Las Vegas veterinarian is that we always examine your pet and check for any possible parasite infestations. If treatment is necessary, our approach is gentle – using the minimal amount of intervention that will successfully eradicate the parasites.
Puppies and kittens have not yet built up an immune system strong enough to ward off potentially deadly diseases in dogs including distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, influenza, kennel cough, lyme disease, and rabies. For cats, our concerns are in preventing feline distemper, respiratory diseases, feline leukemia, rabies, and feline infectious peritonitis. However, our pet vaccination protocols are unique because it is not a one-size-fits-all. We determine what each puppy or kitten’s individual needs are in order to provide complete protection with minimal intervention.
