Congratulations on your new arrival! Puppy and kitten preventive care programs start your new pet on the path to lifelong wellness. We recommend that your pet’s first preventive care visit begin at about 6 to 8 weeks of age.

Puppy and Kitten Preventive Care Visits

New puppies and kittens require a series of preventive care visits to provide protection against harmful diseases. New born puppies and kittens receive some disease protection from their mothers, but additional care is needed.

Your pet’s preventive care visit is a comprehensive review of your pet’s health such as:

  • Physical exam
  • Parasite testing (fecal and blood work)
  • Vaccinations

Puppy and Kitten Vaccinations

We recommend puppies and kittens begin a vaccination schedule at approximately 8 weeks old. Vaccinations for puppies and kittens are administered in a series, spanning several visits. This ensures your pet will receive all of the protective benefits of the vaccine.
