Routine Exams

Routine checkups enable our doctors to monitor your pet's overall health and spot any possible health issues. These exams include a complete medical checkup, dental check, vaccines, and parasite control. Regular vet visits can help discover problems early, resulting in more effective treatment and a higher quality of life for your pet.

Don’t wait for health problems to occur. Call Eagleson Veterinary Clinic now to schedule a regular exam for your pet. Booking appointments at least four weeks in advance is advised.

Puppy and Kitten Preventive Care

Puppies and kittens require extra attention during their first year to increase the best possible growth and development probability. To maintain them healthy and free of infections and parasites, they must conduct a series of vaccines and deworming visits to a pet hospital.

Puppy Vaccine Schedule

Core Vaccines:

  1. 6-8 weeks: The first dose of Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza (DHPP)
  2. 10-12 weeks: Second dose of DHPP
  3. 14-16 weeks: Third dose of DHPP & Rabies vaccine (depending on local regulations and vet recommendations)

Non-Core (Optional) Vaccines:

  1. 6-8 weeks: Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccine (if needed)
  2. 10-12 weeks: Leptospirosis vaccine (if needed, may be combined with DHPP) &  Lyme disease vaccine (if needed, based on regional risk factors)

Puppy Vaccines:

  • Distemper: This vaccine defends your puppy from a highly contagious viral disease that affects their respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems.
  • Hepatitis: This vaccine safeguards your pup against infectious canine hepatitis, a viral disease primarily targeting the liver.
  • Parvovirus: This vaccine helps your puppy avoid a highly contagious and life-threatening viral disease causing severe vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Parainfluenza: This vaccine protects your furry friend from one of the causes of kennel cough, a contagious respiratory infection.
  • Rabies: The rabies virus, which damages the nervous system and is nearly invariably fatal once symptoms show, is prevented by this vaccination. Humans are also susceptible to rabies transmission.
  • Bordetella(Optional): Vaccination against Bordetella, one of the leading causes of kennel cough, a common respiratory illness, is an optional vaccination.
  • Leptospirosis (Optional): This optional vaccination protects your puppy from the bacterial infection Leptospira spp—causes which can harm the kidneys and liver and be spread to people.
  • Lyme (Optional): This extra vaccination guards against Lyme disease, a bacterial infection spread by ticks that can result in kidney damage, lameness, and joint discomfort.

Kitten Vaccine Schedule

Core Vaccines:

  1. 6-8 weeks: First dose of Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia (FVRCP)
  2. 10-12 weeks: Second dose of FVRCP
  3. 14-16 weeks: Third dose of FVRCP & Rabies vaccine (depending on local regulations and vet recommendations)

Non-Core (Optional) Vaccines:

  1. 12-16 weeks (based on risk factors): Feline Leukemia (FeLV) vaccine

Kitten Vaccines

  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis: This vaccine helps protect your kitten from a highly contagious respiratory virus caused by feline herpesvirus-1.
  • Calicivirus: This vaccine prevents another widespread respiratory virus that can lead to oral ulcers and pneumonia in your kitty.
  • Panleukopenia: This vaccine protects your kitten from a severe viral disease affecting their gastrointestinal tract, immune system, and nervous system.
  • Rabies: This vaccine protects against the dangerous rabies virus, which harms the nervous system and is almost always deadly once symptoms appear. Rabies can also spread to humans.
  • Feline Leukaemia (FeLV) (Optional): Protects your cat from the feline leukemia virus. It can harm their immune systems and lead to cancer and anemia.


Deworming is essential for puppies and kittens since they are prone to intestinal parasites. Regular deworming treatments help keep your pet healthy and parasite-free.
