Your Pet’s First Appointment

Puppies and kittens should have their first veterinary appointment at six to eight weeks old.  

At this first visit with us, your pet will have a complete physical examination conducted to assess their overall health. In addition to this, we will examine them for external parasites and congenital defects to make sure they are starting out on the right foot. 

More About Physical Exams

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

More About Vaccines & Prevention

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