Puppy & Kitten Veterinary Care
Care for Puppies & Kittens
Bringing a new puppy or kitten home is truly the best time! This cute, cuddly new family member can't help but make everyone who interacts with them smile.
As great as this time is, there is some serious veterinary care that needs taken care of during your new bundle of joy's first year.
Your vet will develop a custom health care plan to meet your pet's specific needs during their first year, and provide you with plenty of support and guidance along the way!
Your Pet’s First Appointment
Puppies need to be taken to the vet for the first time around six weeks of age, and kittens typically, around eight weeks.
As part of this first visit, your pet will be given a full physical exam to assess their general health, check for external parasites, and look for signs of congenital defects.
Your new pet will be given deworming medications for hookworms and roundworms, and their very first puppy or kitten vaccinations.
Finally, for kittens, we will perform a blood test to check for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus.
Puppies and kittens should attend 3 to 4 veterinary appointments between the ages of 6 and 16 weeks. These visits allow our vets to assess your pet's overall health and to administer vaccines on schedule.
