Care for Puppies & Kittens

Bringing a new puppy or kitten home is certainly an exciting time! Your cute, cuddly new family member is bound to bring a smile to everyone's face.

Nonetheless, as 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.

At Pet Vet our vets can 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, Franklin Veterinarians

Your Pet’s First Appointment

Ideally, kittens and puppies should both attend their first veterinary appointments at around six weeks of age.

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.

Puppy & Kitten Information

Along with a new puppy or kitten comes a whole 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 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!

Set Your Pet Up For Success

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.
