Puppies & Kittens, Poway Veterinarians

Your Pet’s First Appointment

Puppies should see their first veterinarian around the age of six weeks, and kittens around the age of eight weeks.

Your pet will have a complete physical examination during this first visit to assess its overall health, look for signs of any congenital defects, and check for external parasites.

More About Physical Exams

We will also administer roundworm and hookworm deworming medications, as well as the first round of puppy or kitten vaccinations.

More About Vaccines & Prevention

Finally, for kittens, a blood test for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus will be performed.

Follow-up Appointments

Between the ages of 6 and 16 weeks, puppies and kittens should have 3 to 4 veterinary appointments. Our veterinarians can assess your pet's overall health and administer vaccines on time during these visits.
