Extended Puppy and Kitten Visits

Bringing home a new puppy or kitten is a very exciting event for most people. But this adorable, soft and cuddly little creature is entirely dependent on its new family for food, water, shelter, training and healthcare. That is a lot of responsibility, particularly if this is the first pet. We know you may have a lot of questions and we want to take the time to answer all of them. So to help you get off to the right start, we will schedule longer appointments for our new puppy and kitten clients.

There is an abundance of information available for new pet owners but with so much information, and much of it conflicting, knowing where to turn can be overwhelming. This is why we, at Mountainview Animal Hospital, have designed an information package for our new pet owners to take home. In it we have included everything we believe you need to know about your new furry friend. The information has been broken down into categories for quick access. Each category is further simplified into a question and answer format. If you have a question, we are sure we have provided you with the answer.

French poodles did not originate in France. Poodles were originally used as hunting dogs in Europe. The dogs’ thick coats were a hindrance in water and thick brush, so hunters sheared the hindquarters, with cuffs left around the ankles and hips to protect against rheumatism. Each hunter marked his dogs’ heads with a ribbon of his own color, allowing groups of hunters to tell their dogs apart.
