Congratulations on your new kitten!
The first few months of your kitten’s life are very important, and we are here to help guide you through it. Whether this is your first kitten, first pet ever, or your a professional kitten owner, we are here to help you understand how to care for them. We want you to be able to understand their wants and needs, alongside making sure they are fully vaccinated.
Schedule your kitten for their first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, they are susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases.
We can vaccinate your new kitten against:
- Feline Rhinotracheitis
- Feline Leukemia Viruses
Some of these are elective, but others are core vaccines to make sure your kitten lives a long and healthy life.
Here at Beach Avenue Animal Hospital we also work with the best brand for flea and tick prevention. Learning about the importance of flea and tick prevention is an important step to owning a cat, one tick has the potential to be lethal. So make sure you chat with the Doctor to learn about how we can help!
Most kittens have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal signs (although cats can have worms without showing any symptoms). It is important for kittens to be treated for roundworms, not only to rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your kitten is treated, you can keep your entire family safe from these and other parasites.
