I just got a new puppy/kitten. How much will veterinary care cost during the first year? And how much should I expect to spend annually after that?

Puppies and kittens generally have the same health requirements: an initial veterinary visit that includes a physical exam, vaccinations, and tests for parasites. Follow-up visits include the rest of the puppy/kitten series of vaccinations, as well as treatment and preventives for parasites. We recommend that all puppies and kittens be spayed or neutered at 6 months of age as well as microchipped. For more information please visit the services section of the website. Since the cost of many of these items will vary with the size and age of the pet we recommend you call 705-759-8888 and speak with one of our friendly staff members who will be happy to assist you.
