New Puppy and Kitten Vet, The Bluffs Pet Clinic, Red Wing, MN

Congratulations on your new puppy or kitten! What a wonderful and adorable addition to add to the family!

All of us at The Bluffs Pet Clinic are waiting to meet your new puppy or kitten!  We recommend bringing your new pet in as soon as possible after they come home.  We would like to make sure your pet is healthy and that no immediate concerns need to be addressed. Whether you purchased your puppy or kitten from a breeder, pet store, or rescue/adoption center, your pet needs a thorough exam by one of our veterinarians.   If your pet is found to have a medical problem, the sooner we start treating your pet the faster we can get your pet on the way to recovery.

Please bring any medical records and documents of your pet’s health history including information on any vaccines or deworming that may have been administered, as well as a fresh stool sample (less than 12 hours old). Don’t forget to bring your pet into the clinic on a leash or in a carrier to keep them safe!
