Your Pet’s First Appointment

Puppies should ideally have their first veterinary visit 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, your puppy vet look for signs of any congenital defects, and check for external parasites.

More About Physical Exams

We will also administer deworming medications for roundworms and hookworms, and the first round of puppy or kitten vaccinations.

More About Vaccines & Prevention

Finally, for kittens, your kitten vet will perform a blood test to check for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus.

Follow-up Appointments

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.
