At Animal Hospital in Fairfield, we love shelter and rescue pets! If you bring your newly adopted pet in to see us for a wellness checkup within 30 days, we celebrate your new addition with a complimentary first office visit. All you need to do is let us know when you schedule the appointment that you adopted your pet from a rescue or shelter within the last 30 days, and bring in the adoption paperwork with you.
No matter where you adopted your new furry friend, it is important to get them checked out by a veterinarian. We can make sure their vaccines are up to date and recommend any parasite prevention products they might need. For kittens, we will recommend testing them for FeLV and FIV, and protecting them with the FVRCP, FeLV and rabies vaccines. For puppies, we recommend DHPP, Bordetella and rabies vaccines.
If you’ve adopted an older pet, it is also a good idea to schedule them for an exam. When you bring them in, we can estimate their age, give them a general exam, and make sure their vaccines are up to date. We may recommend a dental procedure, discuss nutrition, or recommend bloodwork to check their organ function. We carry products to prevent fleas, ticks, and heartworms in both dogs and cats.
