I don't like taking newborns in to the vet at all unless I have to - until they need their vaccines and that starts at 6 weeks old. They will need vaccines for Rhinotraceitis, Calici and Panleukopenia, the vet will listen to their hearts and will weigh them. They will need to go back to the vet at around 9 weeks for their second vaccines and a general exam and again at 12 weeks for the third vaccines and a general exam. Your vet may also suggest worming them.
Costs vary widely so it is best to call your vet and ask what the pricing would be for the litter to be brought in. Normally, it is customary for the vet to charge you one exam fee for the entire litter but of course, they will charge you for the individual vaccines.
Hope this helps,
