You just brought home your new puppy or kitten!  Do you know what it needs health wise for the 1st year of it’s life.  Here is what you should expect for each!

Your new Puppy or Kitten will have a series of visits to see Dr. Wheeler the 1st year of their life. It is usually 3 or 4 visits for booster vaccines but that can change depending on the breed and size of the puppy or Kitten. We will start with 6-8 week old puppy or Kitten and go through the time line!  We will do a fecal at each visit until we get a negative sample, some intestinal parasites can take a couple of rounds of medications to get rid of them.
