Our Modesto vets provide new pet parents with the guidance, advice, and high quality veterinary services they need during their puppy or kitten's critical first year of life.
Essential Care for Puppies & Kittens
We know that bringing home your new puppy or kitten home is an exciting time! That adorable, cuddly new family member is bound to bring a smile to everyone's face.
That said, fun as it may be, there is also some serious health care business that needs to be taken care of during your new pet's first year of life.
That's why our Modesto vets will work with you to 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!
Your Pet’s First Appointment
Your puppy should first visit the vet at around six weeks of age, and kittens should have their first vet visit at 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.
Our team will also administer deworming medications for roundworms and hookworms, and the first round of puppy or kitten vaccinations.
Finally, for kittens, we will perform a blood test to check for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus.
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.
Our Puppy Package includes 6 months of free office visits and discounts on a wide variety of treatments. These include: pedicures, microchip registration, intestinal parasite screenings and more.
We want to help your puppy 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.
Our Kitten Package includes 4 months of free visits to our hospital as well as discounts on follow-up treatments such as pedicures, microchip registration, and vaccination.
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 about bringing your kitten or puppy to our animal hospital. We want to make sure that you and your puppy or kitten have everything you need to begin a wonderful life together!
