General FAQs

Initial deworming at Modern Pet starts at 4 weeks of age and is continued every 2-3 weeks until 12 weeks of age. From there, deworming is given regularly every 3-6 months for effective protection against intestinal parasites such as roundworms which could be transmitted from pets to humans.

Vaccination in puppies starts at 6 weeks with 2-3 weekly intervals until they reach 16 weeks of age. Once their initial shots are complete, a yearly booster is given for continued immunity against viral diseases.

*Note: Once you acquire your new pets, give them at least 7 days to acclimate to their new environment. They should also be monitored for clinical signs of certain diseases such as vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, loss of appetite, to ensure that once we start vaccinating them, adverse reactions are low. If no signs of disease are observed, you can bring them to the vet for their shots.

At times vaccination reactions can occur due to a formulation of a specific brand, so a different brand of the same vaccine can be used. Discontinuing vaccination protocols on your pet will cause them to be vulnerable to viral diseases, especially if you regularly take them out for walks. Remember, prevention is better than cure!

If your pet has experienced side effects and significant discomfort for more than a day or two after vaccination, it’s important to notify your veterinarian right away.

Shedding is a natural process that occurs in our pets. Their fur functions to regulate their body temperature to protect them from heat and cold stress. But if you noticed an increase occurrence in their shedding, this can be the first sign that something is not right.

Shedding can be caused by multiple factors – allergies, parasites, fungal infections, hormonal imbalances, stress, environmental factors, so it’s important to find the cause of the problem. At times, skin conditions can be resolved by giving skin/fur supplements, shampoos, and a change in diet, but others could have an underlying cause that needs medical treatment. If you see any changes in your pet’s fur and coat, don’t hesitate to bring them to the vet.

Definitely! Kittens at 9 weeks of age are required to have their 1st dose of RCCP vaccine and the 2nd dose will be given at 13 weeks of age. If your cats are not spayed or neutered, they tend to roam outside of your homes, and inevitably, they could encounter other cats that might carry infectious diseases. Vaccination helps prevent them from catching these diseases.
