Puppies should ideally have their first veterinary appointment around six weeks of age, and kittens around eight weeks.

We will also administer deworming medications for roundworms and hookworms, and the first round of puppy or kitten vaccinations.
Finally, for kittens, we will perform a blood test to check for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus.
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.
