Puppies & Kittens, Parry Sound Veterinarians

Your Pet’s First Appointment

Puppies should ideally have their first trip to the vet around six weeks of age, and kittens at about eight weeks.

During this first visit, your pet will receive a complete physical exam to assess their general health, look for signs of any congenital birth defects, and check for any external parasites.

More About Physical Exams

We will also administer deworming medications for roundworms and hookworms, and they will get their 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.
