VCA Stoney Creek Animal Hospital

New Kitten and New Puppy Packages

Did you just adopt a new puppy or kitten? Are you considering bringing a furry 4-legged new friend into the family?

If so, please take some time to let us help you with proper planning for your new addition. Puppies and kittens require lots of care, attention, and patience. The staff at VCA Stoney Creek Animal Hospital can help make the experience more enjoyable and less stressful as you attempt to train and acclimate your new family member to his or her new home. If you have not yet selected a new pet, we are also available to help make the selection process easier. We can counsel you on breed selection as proper pre-planning can help avoid choosing the wrong pet for your environment and life style. Once you have chosen a new 4-legged family member, our doctors and staff are here to guide you through all the life stages of your pet.

In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
