Puppies need a series of vaccines to prevent deadly diseases such as Parvo Virus. Your puppy can start his vaccines at 6 weeks old and they need to continue monthly until the pet is at least 16 weeks of age. At his last puppy visit, a one year Rabies vaccine is also given. Heartworm and flea prevention is given at each visit along with checking a stool sample and appropriate deworming medication. Our RVT’s will counsel new puppy owners on crate training, house breaking, play biting, and anything else needed at each visit. A veterinarian will also examine the puppy at each visit. We recommend spaying or castrating your puppy at six months of age. Ask a receptionist about our puppy wellness packages to receive a discount!
A kitten’s first visit to the vet should be between six and eight weeks of age. At the first visit a feline leukemia test is recommended to make sure your beloved new family member does not have this deadly disease. Like puppies, vaccines are started at the first visit and will continue monthly until the kitten is at least 16 weeks old. Stool samples are checked at each visit and appropriate deworming medication is prescribed. At the last visit, a one year Rabies vaccine is given as well. Depending on the kitten’s environment and exposure, heartworm, flea and tick medication may be prescribed. We recommend spaying or castrating your kitten at 5 to 6 months of age. If you choose to declaw, that can be done at this time as well. Ask a receptionist about our kitten wellness packages to receive a discount!
