New Puppy/Kitten?

Getting your new pet off to the best start

Congratulations on your new arrival!

Introducing a new puppy or kitten to the home is an exciting time. But it can be quite daunting too. The team at Blake Vets are here to support you not only when your puppy or kitten is sick, but also to make sure that you can keep them happy and healthy throughout their life.

Our nursing team can offer you advice on:

  • Socialising
  • Feeding
  • Toilet training
  • Other aspects of their care

Free puppy and kitten checks

You can get a free check of your puppy and kitten by one of our veterinary nurses. This is a good opportunity to get your new pet used to coming to the practice, and to meeting new friendly humans. We suggest that you do this quite soon after you get your new arrival.


Every pet gets to take home a free toy, and you'll get a pack of information to help you settle your pet.

Our nurse appointments are 30 minutes for puppy owners and 20 minutes for kitten owners. We will talk to you about:

  • Worming
  • Vaccinations
  • Preventing fleas and ticks
  • Microchipping
  • Insurance
  • Diet

Veterinary examination

Our vets offer a full nose-to-tail clinical examination at the time of their first vaccination. This makes sure your puppy or kitten is fit and healthy.

At your pet’s second vaccination (three to four weeks later), our nurses offer another free appointment when you can discuss any concerns you might have. Our qualified nurses will give your puppy or kitten their second vaccination.
