Congratulations on your new kitten!
Our Kitten Healthier Happier Living Longer Plans are designed to start your kitten on the VERY BEST path for a long healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your kitten’s development. We give you the support and tools necessary to help your kitten grow into a well-mannered healthy cat. This includes information and advice on nutrition, litterbox training, behavior and socialization.
Your new kitten needs the first exam at 6 weeks of age or as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We make sure your kitten is protected against Rabies and Panleukopenia (distemper), Rhinotracheitis, Calici and Chlamydia. We also advise to vaccinate against other diseases, such as Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). Your kitten needs to be tested and treated for internal and external parasites. These are extremely common in young cats.
Many kittens have roundworms, which are intestinal worms that can cause coughing, weight loss, and a potbellied appearance in cats (although they may not cause any symptoms). It is important for kittens to be treated for roundworms if present, not only to help rid them of the infection but also to prevent you and the rest of your family from becoming infected. Roundworms are a zoonotic parasite, which means they can be transmitted from pets to people. By ensuring that your kitten is properly treated, you can keep your entire family safe.
We look forward to meeting your new kitten! Call today for an appointment and let us help you select the Best Healthier Happier Living Longer Plan for you and your new kitten. (256) 442-2967.
