Vet Care and Wellness Care for Puppies & Kittens in Turlock

New puppies or kittens are always exciting and fun, making everyone smile and laugh along with their cuddly, adorable antics as they melt into place as your new family member. 

But this first year of their life is also important to their well-being, and there are some important health steps you need to take, to make sure they get the wellness and preventative care they need for a long healthy life. 

At MVSAH we'll work with you to develop a custom health care plan that meets your and your pet's needs during their first year, and also gives you the chance to ask questions and get guidance along the way. (And we get to share in your excitement with your new puppy or kitten!) Set your new puppy or kitten on the road to a lifetime of healthy wellness practices.

Kitten Vet in Turlock

Your Pet’s First Appointment at Monte Vista Small Animal Hospital

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. We strongly recommend testing for intestinal parasites.

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.
