When it comes to new pets, nobody cares more than our team here at Bayside Animal Hospital. With caring hearts and educated minds, we have the attentive patience and expertise to help you create the happiest and healthiest life for your pets. It can take some time for pets to adjust to your home and become comfortable in social situations, both with other pets and people. Here’s how we suggest helping your pet adjust and socialize once they arrive in your new home.
New pets need lots of love and care, and that includes taking them for their first visit to the veterinarian. While new fur babies–especially puppies and kittens–are typically healthy, young, and seem to be “just fine,” the truth is that it’s the preventative measures and working with your local vet that ensures that your pets will live long, healthy lives at your side. Here at Bayside Animal Hospital, we truly believe that bringing your pets in for annual veterinary visits is the way to go. In order to prepare your beloved pet for their first vet visit, here are our best tips for getting your new pet ready to see us for the first time:

At Bayside Animal Hospital, we believe in the positive effects of actively socializing your pet. In addition to making your pet happier, socialization also prevents many unwanted behaviors. Let’s take a moment to review other reasons why socializing your pet is a wonderful investment of time and energy.
