Routine Pet Health Examinations

Contact Veterinaire Pet provides routine pet health examinations for cats & dogs in Jersey City. We promise your first visit will be a pleasant, informative experience for you and a happy experience for your pet. You will be greeted warmly and taken care of by our friendly receptionist, and your pet will be cared for by Dr. Waxman and his compassionate technicians.

We recommend you have your new pet examined as soon as possible. A thorough exam can determine if your pet has any infections or genetic problems. We can also test for parasites, contagious diseases, and other internal illnesses.

Important Routine Health Examinations Facts for New Dog & Cat Owners
  • Puppies should receive DHPP (Distemper-Hepatitis-Parainfluenza-Parvo) vaccines at 6-8 weeks and then every 3-4 weeks until 16 weeks of age.
  • Rabies vaccine should be given between three and six months of age. A puppy's first Rabies vaccine is effective for one year, and subsequent vaccines last three years.
  • We always recommend the Bordetella vaccine in our area because there are so many dogs in close proximity on the city streets. We typically use the intranasal vaccine, but we also carry the injectable version
  • If your dog is boarding or visiting the groomer, we also recommend the Canine Influenza Virus vaccine.
  • The Lyme vaccine is recommended if your dog will be exposed to ticks. This is common on hikes or when visiting heavily wooded suburban areas of NJ/NY.
  • Puppies should begin heartworm preventative monthly at 3-4 months old, and should continue this medication monthly for its lifetime. A blood test for heartworm is required annually.
  • Kittens receive Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia (FVRCP) vaccines at 6-8 weeks and then every 3-4 weeks until 16 weeks of age, and Rabies at 16 weeks. Your cat should be tested for feline Leukemia and Aids, and feline Leukemia Virus vaccines should be considered if your cat is exposed to other felines or goes outside.
  • We recommend neutering male dogs at 6-9 months of age. We recommend spaying female dogs at 6-7 months of age, before the first heat. Dr. Waxman and is happy to discuss the age of spaying and neutering for different breeds.
  • We recommend spaying/neutering cats at 4-6 months of age.
  • It's a good idea to bring a stool sample at your pet's first visit so that we can check for internal parasites. Yearly fecal exams are recommended, as well as monthly flea and tick prevention year-round.
