We assess each of your new pets with a physical and complete history and expectations on lifestyle and determine which vaccines or parasite programs they should be on. We also go over behavior questions and advise on how to raise the best puppy or kitten!
Recommendations for vaccines are for puppies to get distemper, parvovirus and hepatitis vaccines at or around 8, 12, and 16 weeks. Bordetella for at risk puppies at 16 weeks, Rabies for all puppies at 16 weeks and leptospirosis vaccine for at risk puppies at 16 weeks also. We tailor the vaccine and deworming schedule to your puppy. Our favorite thing is to consult with new puppy owners about housetraining, crate training, socialization and behavior shaping. We have an extensive consult on the first visit to discuss techniques to make the best pup!
Recommendations for kittens are for them to be feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus tested at 8 or 12 weeks, vaccinated for rhinotracheitis, calici and panleukopenia at 8, 12, and 16 weeks, feline leukemia vaccine if at risk, deworming and behavioral modification are discussed at length as well.
