Kittens

Congratulations on your new kitten!

Your kitten will receive a complete health examination from our doctors. We will start a vaccination program and advise when boosters are necessary. A stool specimen is checked for intestinal parasites. Learn more about intestinal parasites in pets. We start prevention against feline heartworm disease. If indicated, flea control for your kitten will also be discussed.

Why microchip your cat?

Most of our feline patients are indoors, yet we experience numerous cases of indoor cats escaping outdoors, without any collar or identification. Most outdoor cats do not wear collars and if they do they are typically break away collars. Many people that see a cat without a collar assume it is a stray, but they really have a family that is missing them. Microchipping your cat is the best way to help assure you get your missing family member back safe in your arms. Most shelters and veterinary hospitals scan all new or found pets for this microchip to help find the owner. Thousands of pets have found their way back home with this wonderful technology. The size of a grain of rice, this microchip is injected with a needle under the skin of your pet where it remains safely for life.
