Did you just adopt a new best friend? It is important to bring your new pet to the veterinarian when they are as youngs as 6 weeks old. You'll need to bring your little one in for vaccines every 3 to 4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old.

puppy and kittenDogs get shots for Rabies, Distemper-Parvo, and other diseases. They may also need shots to protect against health woes such as Kennel Cough, Leptovirus, and Lyme disease. Cats will get tested for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. They also get vaccinations that cover several diseases.

At this stage, your pet will also start heartworm and flea/tick-prevention medications if they’re recommended for your area. The doctor will examine your pup or kitten to make sure they are growing well and showing no signs of an illness. The veterinarian will check again at around 4 to 6 months, when you bring your pet in to be spayed or neutered.
