Kitten Wellness

Our kitten wellness program is designed to help get your kitten started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your kitten’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy cat, including information and advice on nutrition, litterbox training, and behavior.

Schedule your kitten for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will protect your new pet against rabies and panleukopenia (distemper). Depending on your cat’s risk, we may advise vaccinating him or her against other diseases, such as feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). In addition, your kitten will need to be tested and treated for parasites common in young cats.

Most kittens have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause coughing, weight loss, and a potbellied appearance in cats (although they may not cause any symptoms). Kittens need to be treated for roundworms to help rid them of the infection and prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite that can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your kitten is treated correctly, you can keep your entire family safe.
