Kittens need a series of vaccinations given 3-4 weeks apart, between the ages of 8 and 16 weeks. We will make sure your new cat is protected against rabies, panleukopenia (distemper), FIV, and feline leukemia,, among other diseases.
Whether your kitten was purchased from a breeder, adopted from a rescue group, or acquired from a friend or family member, kittens should get a physical on their first visit. Please bring a written record of any medical or vaccination history you received on your first visit. We will also check the kitten for intestinal parasites, fleas, earmites, and more. If possible, please bring a stool sample on your first visit to make this process easier.
We will also discuss housebreaking, training, grooming, feeding, and spaying or neutering. We will work with you to provide you and your family the support and tools necessary to help your kitten grow into a well-mannered, healthy cat, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, and socialization.
