The Best Start
Puppy and Kitten Vaccinations
Bringing home a new puppy or kitten can be both exciting and daunting! Here at Bilston vets we aim to guide you through the early stages with full support and advice.
Puppy vaccinations start from 8 weeks of age and kittens from 9 weeks. Both require a course of 2 vaccines initially, followed by annual boosters.
Puppies need to remain at home and in their own secure garden until a week after the second injection. After this time they can start their walks and burn off some energy!
Kittens, although also protected 1 week after the course, ideally need to remain indoors until they have been neutered and are better able to take care when out alone!
Always unpleasant but often very harmful, these unwanted visitors need to become part of every pet owners responsibility. There are many preparations available from several retailers but we always advise seeking advice from a Veterinary professional, ensuring effective safe products to control and prevent both internal and external parasites. We supply and advise on all routine treatments ensuring that the product used is the best for each individual. Often these are simple to use spot-on treatments, which protect and treat worms and fleas etc. in one application to the back of the pet's neck and with regular monthly routines will keep our pets safe and healthy.
