Puppy Exams and Kitten Exams at Our Hicksville Animal Hospital

Your puppy's or kitten's first year of care at Island Trees Veterinary Hospital includes:

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

Vaccinations: Due to their developing immune systems, puppies and kittens must receive a series of properly staged vaccines. Because your puppy or kitten is unique, we tailor your puppy shots and kitten shots based on their lifestyle and/or breed and according to the suggested medical guidelines.

Diagnostic Testing: Your puppy should be tested for internal parasites, including Heartworm, and your kitten should be tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS.

Additional Recommendations: We will also discuss and recommend other services, such as parasite control, spaying, neutering and microchipping.
