Kitten Wellness

  • Vaccinations  We will outline an individualized vaccination schedule and protocol for you new kitten. We will determine through discussion and physical exam what vaccines your new family member needs. Please refer to our Vaccine Recommendations for Kittens and Adult Cats section to see which feline vaccinations we offer.
  • Wellness Exams  During your kitten’s routine physical examinations, our veterinarians will listen to his/her heart and breath sounds, feel the abdomen, and check the coat/skin condition. We will also check your kitten's eyes, ears, and mouth.
  • Parasite Screening  We will check your kitten for external parasites, such as fleas, ringworm, and ear mites. We will also perform an analysis of your kitten’s feces to check for internal parasites, such as roundworms, hookworms, coccidia, and giardia. Please bring a stool sample to all scheduled kitten appointments.
  • Microchip Placement  We strongly urge that you obtain an i.d. tag to be attached to your kitten's collar. We also offer more permanent identification with Datamar's petlink.net system. The chip is the size of a grain of rice and is inserted underneath the skin. The i.d number and owner information is then registered with the petlink.net registry. If a pet is lost and recovered, the number can be read by any agency or veterinarian who has a microchip scanner and the owner can be traced.
  • Behavior Counseling  We can discuss training and socialization techniques for your new kitten.
  • Spay/Neuter  Recommended at 6 months of age for all cats not used for breeding.
