Puppy and Kitten Care

24 Hour Puppy and Kitten Care

CONGRATULATIONS on your new puppy or kitten!

Your life will never be the same! You will spend many happy and healthy years with new family member. At the Jefferson Animal Hospital and Regional Emergency Center we offer puppy and kitten wellness care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Puppy and Kitten Wellness Exams

We recommend scheduling your pet’s first visit as soon as possible. The first visit will check your puppy/kitten’s overall health, look for congenital abnormalities, and deworm and vaccinate your puppy or kitten if appropriate. In addition, we will offer nutritional advice so that your puppy or kitten grows up healthy and strong.

Vaccine Information for Kittens

We use PureVax Vaccine. This advanced vaccine is a recombinant DNA product that reduces the risk of Vaccine Associated Feline Sarcomas. All our vaccines are selected to provide the safest immunization for your pets.


Microchips: We strongly recommend placing a microchip at the time of your puppy’s spay or neuter. If your puppy becomes lost a microchip will identify you as his or her owner and lead to a safe reunion. Our sister hospital, Fern Creek Medical Center provides microchip services.
