Your Pet’s First Appointment
Puppies should have their first veterinary checkup at about 6 weeks old. Kittens should have their at about 8 weeks.
During this first visit, your pet will receive a physical examination in order to assess their health. Our vets will try to detect any congenital defects and for external parasites as well.
We will administer deworming medication to you puppy or kitten in order to treat them for roundworms and hookworms, as well as provide them with their first round of vaccinations.
Finally, for kittens, we will perform a blood test to check for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus.
