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, Tracy 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 Package

Our Puppy Package includes your first four visits with our vet and discounts on a wide variety of treatments. These include: Medical insurance, pedicures, microchip registration, intestinal parasite screenings and more. 

We want to help your pup start off on the right foot throughout their critical first year. Our Puppy Package is our way of supporting you in providing the care your pet needs to set them up for a happy and healthy life.

Kitten Package

Our Kitten Package includes your new pet's first 3 visits to our hospital as well as discounts on follow-up treatments such as pedicures, microchip registration and spaying or neutering. 

We aim to provide everything your kitten needs through their first year of life, and our Kitten Package is an excellent way to start on the right foot.

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!
