Initial Puppy and Kitten Vet Appointment in Astoria

Puppies should ideally have their first veterinary appointment around six weeks of age, and kittens around eight weeks.

During your first visit, your pet will receive a comprehensive physical examination in order to assess their overall health, well-being and to look for signs of congenital defects and external parasites.

More About Physical Exams

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

More About Vaccines & Prevention

Finally, for kittens, we will perform a blood test to check them for feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia. 

Follow-Up Puppy & Kitten Vet Care

Puppies and kittens should attend 3 to 4 veterinary appointments between the ages of 6 and 16 weeks. These visits allow our vets to assess your pet's overall health and to administer vaccines on schedule.
