Congratulations on your new kitten! We can’t wait to meet the newest addition to your family.
Please bring your new kitten in as soon as possible after you bring him/her home. Your investment in good basic care may reward you with the companionship and affection of a healthy cat for fifteen years or more.
Your kitten will need to be vaccinated at around age two months, three months and four months. We strongly recommend an annual wellness visit so that your kitten's health and vaccination schedule can be maintained. Remember that vaccines are not a treatment, they are a prevention. If your kitten is unwell because he or she has not been vaccinated, the vaccination shots should be given after recovery. Vaccines are not 100% effective, but will give your kitten a good degree of protection against feline leukemia, respiratory diseases, flu type viruses, feline panleukopenia, feline rabies and others.
We recommend that all young kittens be feline leukemia tested. Cats at risk (indoor/outdoor) should be vaccinated with a series of two shots and then boostered annually.
