Puppy and Kitten Wellness Exams & Vaccination
We know how exciting it is for pet parents to have a new puppy or kitten in the house and that’s why we’ve created a vet visit just for them! Our affordable and attentive Wellness Exams and Vaccinations are at the heart of a happy, healthy (and growing) pet and provide essential preventative care. We offer all the core vaccines and non-core “lifestyle” vaccines that your puppy or kitten will need during their first year of life.

Dedicated Wellness Exams for Puppies and Kittens
Puppies and kittens need dedicated care. Our Puppy and Kitten Wellness Exams last for 45 minutes - a little longer than our regular pet wellness checks - because furbabies need lots of extra attention. We recommend regular Kitten and Puppy Wellness Exams during your pet’s first year as well as annual wellness checkups when your veterinarian can also provide booster vaccines as needed. These visits may be more frequent if your pet has a health condition or they need additional booster vaccines, such as when he or she is starting a new vaccine series.
The Importance of Vaccination During the First Year
Keeping your puppy or kitten up-to-date on vaccinations is one of the most important components of preventative pet wellness care. There are many common diseases that can pose serious risks to your puppy or kitten’s health if they are exposed. Your BetterVet team can bring vaccines to you as part of your Puppy or Kitten Wellness Exam while keeping your pet as comfortable as possible at home.
Below is a list of common vaccinations for puppies and kittens. Some of these are recommended for all of our four-legged patients, while others depend on certain lifestyle factors.
Common Vaccinations for Puppies and Dogs
• DHPP: Distemper, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus
• Bordetella (Kennel Cough)
• Common Vaccinations for K
Common Vaccinations for Kittens and Cats
• Feline Distemper and respiratory combined vaccine (Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia)
• Feline leukemia
