Care for Puppies & Kittens

Bringing a new puppy or kitten home is an exciting time! Your cute, cuddly new friend can't help but bring joy to everyone who interacts with them. 

While this time is a lot of fun, there is also some serious health care business that must be taken care of during your new friend's first year of life. 

Your puppy or kitten 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 advice along the way!

Puppies & Kittens, San Gabriel Veterinarians

Your Pet’s First Appointment

Your first puppy hospital visit should be around six weeks of age, while kittens should first visit the vet 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 Wellness 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.

Follow-up 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 Packages

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 will provide plenty of guidance, support, and helpful information.
