Care for Your New Best Friend

Welcoming a new puppy or kitten into your family is an exciting time! Your adorable new family member is bound to bring joy to everyone's day.

Along with the excitement of becoming a new pet parent comes the responsibility of providing your new cat or dog with the essential healthcare they need to achieve long-term good health.

Our team of veterinary professionals will provide guidance and comprehensive veterinary care for puppies or kittens during their critical first year and provide you with plenty of support and guidance along the way.

Puppies & Kittens, Lethbridge Veterinarians

Your Pet’s First Appointment

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 veterinary visit, your puppy or kitten will receive a complete physical examination to assess their overall health and look for signs of any congenital issues. Your companion will also be checked for parasites.

Kittens will have a blood test done to check for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus.

Parasite Prevention & Vaccinations

We will also administer deworming medications for roundworms and hookworms, and the first round of puppy or kitten vaccinations.

Follow-Up Appointments

Between the ages of six and 16 weeks, puppies and kittens need to attend approximately three or four veterinary appointments. These visits allow our veterinarians to monitor your pet's health and administer required vaccines.

Puppy & Kitten Guidance

Caring for your new fur baby is a big responsibility.

To help you navigate your pet's critical first year of life, our team will provide you with a new puppy or kitten pack containing helpful information to guide you through the early days of pet parenting. These packs contain:

  • A vaccination and medical care schedule
  • Information on spaying and neutering
  • Information on common medical problems such as heartworm disease and feline leukemia
  • Tips on socializing your puppy or kitten with animals and people, including pets already living in your home
  • Basic puppy training guidelines
  • Nutrition information

At each appointment, our veterinary team will make time to answer any questions you may have and address any concerns about your pet's health. We're here to help you provide your new best friend with the best possible care now and as they continue to grow.
