At Apple Country Veterinary Hospital, each pet’s first year of care is customized based on its specific needs to help your puppy or kitten get the right start in life. Just like human children, puppies and kittens require additional physical exams and vaccine boosters to ensure that they get the very best start in life.

Below are our recommendations, in addition to ones noted above, for your puppy's or kitten’s first year.

•Physical Exams: Your puppy's or kitten’s lifetime of wellness starts with its first physical exam. Puppies and kittens should have 3-4 exams between the ages of 8-16 weeks. These visits are important because they give our veterinarians an opportunity to assess your pet's overall health and to administer vaccines.

•Vaccinations: Due to their immature immune systems puppies and kittens must receive a series of properly staged vaccines. Since every puppy and kitten is unique, we tailor our vaccination recommendations based on their lifestyle and/or breed and according to the suggested guidelines.

•Diagnostic Testing: We recommend fecal tests for all puppies and kittens to screen for intestinal parasites. Kittens should be tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS at their first visit if not done previously.

•Additional Recommendations: Our doctors will also discuss and recommend other services, such as spaying, neutering or microchipping that can lead to a longer and healthier life for your dog or cat.
