Congratulations on Your New Kitten! An important test that should be run during your first visit is for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Once his or her status is determined, your kitten should receive a series of vaccines starting at approximately eight weeks of age, spaced three to four weeks apart. A rabies vaccine will be given between 12 to 14 weeks of age.
Kittens may have intestinal parasites or worms from their mothers or the environment which can be transmissible to children and adults. We will begin a two-part de-worming series during the initial exam. It is recommended that you bring a stool sample on the third visit for a fecal analysis to confirm your pet is free from any parasites.
To ensure the health and proper development of your new puppy, a comprehensive physical exam will be included with each visit. This is the perfect time to discuss any questions you may have about training, nutrition or behavioral issues.
