Caring For Your New Pet in Sarasota and Parrish

new pet

Caring for a new pet can be an overwhelming experience. Knowing what to do, when to go to the vet and how to provide kitten care or puppy care can help you raise a happy, healthy animal. At Dr. Nina's Animal Hospital, we help pet owners care for their new pets.  

Bringing Your New Pet Home

The first few days with your new pet will likely be the most exciting and challenging. 

  • Be prepared. Pets need a range of accessories, like a bed, food dish, toys and a collar. Buy these items in advance so they'll be ready when your pet comes home. 
  • Set up a schedule. Set up a pet care schedule so everyone in the household knows his or her duties. 
  • Do research. It's better to read up on pet care before bringing your pet to the house. This way you'll know some of the basics of feeding, exercising and caring for your pet.
  • Spend time bonding. A new pet is likely to feel scared and alone. Spend extra time cuddling with your pet at the very beginning, so he or she will feel welcome and comforted. 

When To Bring Your Pet To The Veterinarian in Sarasota and Parrish

Most pet owners bring their pet to the veterinarian in Sarasota and Parrish for the first time around 6 to 8 weeks of age. At this visit, we'll give your pet his or her first vaccines. We'll also perform a full physical exam, so you'll know whether or not your pet is healthy.
