At Petland Iowa City, Iowa, the health and well-being of our pets is our primary focus and we are dedicated to providing our pets with quality, professional care.
Often times, our puppies have been seen by two to three independent veterinarians before being available in a Petland store. Every Petland store has a partnership with a local veterinarian.
Our consulting veterinarians conduct examinations of our new arrivals, provide regular preventative care and oversee the healthcare protocols for all of our “babies” while in our store. These veterinarians certify that Petland pets are healthy prior to being available to customers. Additionally, puppies receive a free follow up visit to the vet with their new family.
When you are a first time pet owner, it is always good to notify your veterinarian. Your first vet visit should be within 6 to 8 weeks old. Be sure to have all your proper paperwork for your first visit.
In your pets first year, they will have to visit the vet a few times to receive their shots. Your pet should receive their first vaccination(s) at six to eight weeks old..
Remember to ask any questions if you are not sure about anything. Visiting your vet should be a safe and pleasant place to visit so try and remain calm, or your pet could sense you reactions, and emotions.
Petland is the retail pet industry leader in the area of animal care with ongoing staff training programs, in-store animal husbandry systems and community service programs aimed at placing homeless pets and curbing pet overpopulation in the community. The health and well-being of our pets comes first for all of us at Petland and it is our goal to share that knowledge with our customers so they can raise happy, healthy pets.
All pets have four basic needs that need to be met in order for them to be happy and healthy:
All pets have instinctual behaviors that are integral to their quality of life. Providing appropriate products and training will keep your pet’s life enriched.
Whether it’s a birdcage, training crate or hamster den, providing the appropriate habitat and accessories (bowls, perches, bedding) for your type or breed of pet is essential to your pet’s feeling of safety and well-being.
Taking care of the animal’s grooming needs and keeping its environment clean and well-maintained is vital in preventing unwanted infections or disease.
All pets have different nutritional requirements and understanding basic nutrition needs supplemented with healthy snacks, treats and vitamins helps to ensure proper development and growth through all of their life stages.
