Care for Puppies & Kittens

It's always a fun time when you bring home a new furry friend! Your cute, cuddly new family member is sure to make everyone around them smile. 

Fun as it may be, there is also some serious health care business to take care of during your new pet's first year of life.

Your vet will work with you to create a custom health care plan to meet your pet's unique needs and will provide you with plenty of support and guidance along the way!

Puppies & Kittens, Napanee Veterinarians

Your Pet’s First Appointment

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

During this initial visit, your pet will receive a complete physical examination to assess their overall health, look for signs of any congenital defects, and check for external parasites.

More About Physical Exams

We will also administer deworming medications for roundworms and hookworms, and the first round of puppy or 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.

Puppy & Kitten Information Packs

Bringing home a new puppy or kitten comes with a lot of new responsibilities.

To help you navigate your puppy or kitten's first year, our team has put together a kitten and puppy package that contain guidance, support, and helpful information about caring for your new friend.
