When do I schedule my kitten's first appointment?
If your kitten has not yet been examined by a veterinarian, schedule your appointment within a few days of bringing him/her home.
If you adopted your kitten from a shelter or rescue group that started his/her vaccines, check the records. In most cases, the next visit will be due 3 to 4 weeks from the last vaccination.
Should I separate my other cats from my kitten?
It is a good idea to keep your kitten in a separate room from your other cats until we determine that he/she is healthy. Our doctors and technicians will help guide you to introduce your kitten to the rest of your pets safely.
When will my kitten need to be spayed/neutered?
Our veterinarians recommend spaying and neutering kittens at around 6 months of age. We will perform a thorough pre-surgical exam and pre-anesthetic bloodwork within 30 days before surgery.
Annual veterinary exams are important to keep your cat healthy and protected from disease. A thorough exam every year will help the veterinarian detect signs of illness early, when they are more easily managed and less costly to treat.
Even indoor cats need regular vaccinations - though their risk is less than that of cats that spend time outdoors, they can still be susceptible to these preventable diseases.
We're on a mission for quality, lifelong care to keep all of our feline patients as healthy as possible so that you can spend many wonderful years with your pets.
