Care for Puppies & Kittens

Bringing a new puppy or kitten home is an exciting time! This cute, cuddly new family member can't help but make everyone who interacts with 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 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, Anaheim 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 their first checkup, your pet will be given a full physical exam to assess their health, check for any signs of congenital defects and look for external parasites.

More About Physical Exams

Deworming medications for hookworms and roundworms will be given to your pet and they will receive their 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 will provide plenty of guidance, support, and helpful information.

Our Kitten and Puppy information packs contain everything you'll need to know about your pet’s early development, including:

  • A vaccination and medical care schedule
  • Nutrition information
  • Information on common medical problems such as heartworm disease, feline leukemia, and zoonosis
  • Tips for how to socialize your puppy or kitten with animals and people, including pets already living in your home

Our vets will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and put any concerns or worries to rest. We want to make sure that you and your puppy or kitten have everything you need to begin a wonderful life together!
