Regular preventive care is the foundation of your pet's good health, and vaccinations are an important part of this care.

Bringing a kitten home is a very exciting time for you and your family! Whether you have had pets all your life or this is your first furry family member, we want to ensure your lifestyle changes and your pet's transition to its new home are as smooth and uncomplicated as possible.

Your kitten was born with a level of immunity passed down from their mother. As they get older, that immunity wears off, and it becomes necessary to vaccinate them in order to keep them protected from some potentially life threatening diseases. Over the first several months of your kitten's life, we recommend several visits to the vet to ensure healthy growth and good habits.

Here is what to expect during your kitten's first visits:

1st Visit (9 weeks): Initial exam, FVRCP, Strongid (dewormer), Fecal, Felv/FIV test, kitten kit

2nd Visit (12 weeks): Brief exam, FVRCP, Felv, Strongid

3rd Visit (15 weeks): Brief exam, FVRCP, Felv, Rabies vaccine (1yr), Strongid, Microchip

Important topics to discuss during these initial visits:
House training
Nutritional needs
Heartworm/Flea/Intestinal Parasite Prevention
Emergency Care
