Kitten Care

Congratulations on your new kitten!

Bringing a new kitten home is such an exciting time. Your life is filled with extra cuddles, and your heart is bursting with love.  We are excited to help you start your kitten off right with superb veterinary care from the very beginning.

Kittens have different needs than adult cats, and therefore require specialized veterinary care. We recommend kittens come in for three visits for kitten health check exams and vaccines. At your kitten’s first exam your veterinarian will discuss vaccinations, nutrition, life stages, and will address any questions you may have. We have outlined a general veterinary schedule for kitten care below. A full handout about kitten care is available to download via the link at the bottom of the page.

First Kitten Exam (7-8 weeks)

  • Wellness examination
  • 1st kitten vaccination FVRCP: Feline Calicivirus, Rhinotracheitis, Panleukopenia
