Veterinarians are necessary for every type of pet that you may have. Most veterinarians will handle dogs, cats and birds. To find one that provides for special species and even rare species, you may have to dig a bit harder. Yet, there are more and more of these vets available to provide their service to you.
A veterinarian should be seen within the first two to three months of getting a new pet. If the pet is a puppy or kitten, they should be seen as soon as possible. Most pets require immunizations just as children do. In addition, any health problems that the pet may have need to be addressed as soon as possible.
