Care for Puppies & Kittens

Bringing home a new kitten or puppy is a very exciting time! Your cuddly and cute new family member won't be able to help but bring a smile to the face of everyone who sees them. 

As fun and exciting as they may be, there is also some important veterinary business to attend to during your new pet's first year of life.

Your vet will develop a custom health care plan to meet your pet's specific needs during their first year, and provide you with plenty of support and guidance along the way!

Puppies & Kittens, Moreno Valley Veterinarians

Your Pet’s First Appointment

Ideally, puppies should have their first veterinary appointment at about 6 weeks of age. Kittens should have their at about 8 weeks.

During this first visit, your pet will have a comprehensive physical examination in order to determine their health, to search for signs of congenital defects and to detect external parasites.

More About Physical Exams

We will also administer deworming medications for parasites like hookworms and roundworms as well as their first round of puppy and kitten vaccinations.

More About Vaccines & Prevention

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

Followup Appointments

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.
