Advice for new pet owners

Did you get a new puppy or kitty over the holidays? You might have a lot of questions if this is your first pet. Not to worry, Dr. Chris Brader with Matthews Animal Clinic joined us on QC Morning to give us some helpful advice. Dr. Brader says sometimes people sign a contract that says their new pet has to be checked by a vet, 1 to 2 days after adoption. Dr. Brader says that’s perfectly fine, but he doesn’t recommend vaccination until 6 to 8 weeks. Dr. Brader says if you’re concerned about your pet, call before you bring them in. A receptionist, tech, or vet will be able to answer your questions. Listen to Dr. Brader talk about what is normal in new puppies or kittens and when you should be concerned.
