At Radford Animal Hospital, our veterinary team is proud to provide a wide range of health, wellness, and other services to pets in Radford and the surrounding areas, including Dublin, Blacksburg, and Christiansburg. Whether you've recently brought home a new puppy/kitten or plan on doing so in the near future, we're here to help your new pet lead a happy and healthy life.
There are a number of steps you should take as a pet owner to properly care for your new puppy or kitten. One of the most routine care precautions you can take is to bring your pet into our office for regular wellness exams and to ensure your new pet stays up-to-date on all vaccinations, such as rabies, canine influenza, parvovirus, feline leukemia, and the like.
We also recommend you get your new pet on a flea, tick, and parasite prevention medication—and we offer a wide range of these options here in our office. If your puppy or kitten is not yet spayed or neutered, speak to our vet about scheduling this important surgery that can help to protect your pet from having unwanted litters and experiencing certain types of reproductive cancers later in life.
Some other care services we offer and that you may want to consider for your new pet include:
We also offer a full pet pharmacy right in our office, so we can fill many prescriptions that your pet may need throughout life. And if you don't already have a pet insurance policy in place for your new kitten or puppy, we highly recommend purchasing one for your additional peace of mind!
If your new puppy or kitten is due for a wellness exam or other care, our Radford vet is here to help. Call (540) 639-3891 today to schedule an appointment with Radford Animal Hospital!
