Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life. – James Cromwell, American Actor

Congratulations, your pet is an adult!

When is my dog considered an adult?

Small breeds are adults at one year.
Medium-sized breeds are adults at 18 months.
Large-sized breeds are adults at two years.

When is my cat considered an adult?

All breeds are adults at one year.

As adults, your pets have several different health needs than when they were puppies and kittens.

Instituting good health practices in your pet’s early years will help you continue the practice of good health as they get older.

Once those cute little puppy and kitten visits have concluded, we recommend adult dogs and cats have a semi-annual veterinary exam.

These visits usually include:

  • A physical examination from nose to tail
  • Your pet can’t talk, but their blood work can. We recommend blood work analysis to check for proper blood chemistry levels, proper organ functioning, and checks against the baselines labs we collected while they were in their puppy or kitten stage.
  • A parasite screening, which includes a fecal sample
  • Heartworm test that will be run to check for worms in the heart
  • A vaccination schedule that ensures your pets are protected from many diseases:
