A Better Start

Bringing a new puppy or kitten into your home is always something to celebrate. They add energy and fun and are a source of unceasing affection as they bond with you and your family.

However, new pets require a little extra attention to ensure a good, healthy start at life. This means that comprehensive veterinary physical exams (at key developmental stages) from one of the Plantation veterinarians at Central Broward Animal Hospital are essential. When you get a new pet, it’s important to schedule an appointment right away so that we may review their prior medical records and make timely recommendations for appropriate wellness care.

Your first visits with your new puppy or kitten at Central Broward Animal Hospital are perhaps the most important. These initial visits are where you, one of our doctors and your pet first meet and begin to form the relationship that lasts throughout the life of your pet. We take plenty of time with these visits to give your puppy or kitten a thorough examination, talk with you about concerns you may have, offer health care and training advice, and more.
