Vet Care for Puppies & Kittens

Bringing home a new kitten or puppy is an exciting time! These cute and cuddly new members of your family aren't able to help but bring a smile to everyone's face. 

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.

Our veterinarians in Morton, PA will be able to develop a customized health care plan to meet your pet's specific needs during their first year of life and provide you with support and guidance the entire time. 

Puppies & Kittens, Morton 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 first visit, your pet will be able to receive a comprehensive physical exam in order to assess their overall health, search for signs of congenital defects, and to check for external parasites. 

More About Physical Exams

We will administer deworming medications for hookworms and roundworms as well as their first round of puppy and 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 & Kitten Veterinary Packages

Bringing home a new puppy or kitten comes with a lot of new responsibilities.

In order to help you navigate your kitten or puppy's first year, our team will be able to provide plenty of guidance, support and helpful information.
