There’s really nothing quite like the smell of puppy breath and little run/hop to get some cuddles. It’s truly so cute, but raising a new puppy comes with tremendous responsibility. Whether you’re a first time dog owner or a seasoned dog dad or mom, puppies can prove to be quite the handful. However, you can count on the Wewoka Animal Hospital team to support and lead you through the first steps of your new pup's life. We’re here to provide a fully equipped animal hospital for all of your and your puppies' needs. Our incredible team and veterinarians are also dedicated to lower any stress you may be feeling too!
The first step you'll want to do is to schedule a first time visit with us at our animal hospital. You will also want to obtain a copy of your puppy’s first shot records and visit if they’ve already had one. If you happen to adopt from a local shelter or rescue agency, they should be able to provide or prepare those papers for you at the time of their adoption. If not, you can always request them. The same process applies to your breeder. During the visit, we’ll be able to go over questions you may have. Whether you need help "puppy-proofing" your house or having trouble with commands we’ve you covered.
Our team will work with you to come up with a customized plan for both wellness checks, vaccines, and even behavior training or pet insurance!
If you’re planning on bringing home a new kitten make sure to start by getting a carrier that’s safe and comfortable for your new furry pal.

We know this process is going to make you both excited and nervous, but don’t worry, we’re here to help keep you in high spirits! At Wewoka, our staff is dedicated to seeing your little kitten grow into a happy and healthy young adult. We want to make sure we get to see them later on into their golden years!
When it comes to your kitten's health it’s absolutely non-negotiable that you bring them into the veterinarian's office within their first week. Ask your breeder or shelter if they have already received their vaccines and if so, bring a copy of the records. The first visit is called the health check. You’ll want to ensure you make the carrier comfortable for your kitten. Make sure to provide a quiet and calm car ride while you’re on the way to the clinic. This significantly helps to make your kitten feel a lot less frightened or stressed during the exam. That way, we can easily check your kitten for things like parasites, feline leukemia, and determine if they need their first round of vaccines. If they do, we’ll take care of it right then and there. At the end, we’ll make sure to take a few minutes to answer any questions about socialization, general care, and health concerns. You can also schedule feature booster shots then too.
