Congratulations on the latest addition to your family! We can’t wait to meet your new kitten!
Our knowledgeable staff and veterinarians are glad to answer any questions you have about new pet ownership and health care. The most important immediate advice we can offer is to schedule an appointment with us for a full medical evaluation.
In your initial visit, we will perform a comprehensive preliminary examination to determine if your kitten is at risk for any health issues. We will also examine your pet for intestinal parasites and perform deworming if necessary. Growing cats’ developing immune systems leave them more vulnerable to illness, so please ask our veterinarians about the schedule of preventative treatment that is best for your new pet’s first few months of life. We want your cat to grow up healthy and strong!
During your cat’s first visit, we will conduct a visual physical and dental examination. We will also examine your kitten for intestinal parasites and perform deworming if necessary. Humans are susceptible to these parasites, so we recommend three intestinal parasite exams and three dewormings during the first sixteen weeks of your kitten’s life. Ask our veterinarians about developing a schedule for additional vaccinations based on your pet’s age, lifestyle, and medical history.
We ask that you bring the health information provided to you by the seller or shelter on your first visit with us, which should include a previous history of vaccines and deworming, as well as a fresh stool sample.
