Veterinary care is an important part of owning a new puppy or kitten. It's important to take your new pet for regular checkups and vaccinations, as well as to have them spayed or neutered. It's also important to provide good nutrition, flea/tick prevention, and dental care for your puppy or kitten.
Your Pet’s First Appointment
Puppies should ideally have their first veterinary appointment around six weeks of age, and kittens around eight weeks.
During this initial visit, your pet will receive a complete physical examination to assess their overall health, look for signs of any congenital defects, and check for external parasites.
We will also administer deworming medications for roundworms and hookworms, and the first round of 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.
Our vets are happy to answer any questions you may have about the proper care for your new family member. We want to make sure that you and your puppy or kitten have everything you need to begin a wonderful life together!
