Healthy Starts For Puppies & Kittens

Bringing a new puppy or kitten into your home is a life-changing experience. They will have an impact on the lives of all of those around them, brightening even the darkest days.

While this is very exciting, you must remember that being a new pet parent also comes with the responsibility of ensuring their long-term well-being. You need to provide your puppy or kitten with essential healthcare to ensure good long-term health.

Our Thornhill veterinarians provide guidance, advice, and targeted veterinary care for puppies or kittens during their critical first year of life.

This includes routine physical checkups, dental care and preventive care like vaccinations. All of these veterinary services, along with the love you give, will help give your new puppy or kitten a great start in life.

Puppies & Kittens, Thornhill Veterinarians

First Visit to the Veterinarian

Our veterinarians recommend that puppies attend their first veterinary appointment around six weeks of age, and kittens around eight weeks of age.

Examination & Diagnostics

During your pet's first visit, they will have a complete physical examination to assess their overall health (both inside and out), look for signs of any congenital issues, and check for parasites.

If you have a kitten, they will also have blood work done to check for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus.

Parasite Prevention & Vaccinations

Your new little family member will receive treatment for parasites and the first round of puppy or kitten vaccinations will also be provided during this visit.

Follow-Up Appointments

Approximately three to four veterinary appointments will be required for puppies and kittens during the first 16 weeks of their life. These visits allow our veterinarians to monitor your pet's health and administer vaccinations on a schedule.

Puppy & Kitten Packs
