Cat Wellness and Feline Preventative Health Care

Kitten Care

When a new kitten comes into your life, our goal is to provide the care necessary to assure that your kitten is a happy, loved member of your family. During your kitten’s two or three initial visits we will:- Provide a complete physical examination to uncover potential problems

  • Perform an intestinal parasite exam and do the appropriate treatment
  • Test your new kitten for Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
  • Administer necessary vaccines
  • Provide information regarding diet, training, exercise, and behavior issues
  • Answer your questions

Kitten Vaccines

We will vaccinate your kitten against Feline Panleukopenia, Feline Rhinotracheitis, Feline Calicivirus, and Rabies.

There are other vaccines that are needed in certain circumstances. These include Feline Chlamydophilia, Feline Leukemia Virus, Feline Bordetella, and Feline Immunodefeciency Virus. Each kitten will be individually evaluated for the need for additional vaccines.

Please be aware that we use the safest and latest vaccines incorporating recombinant technology with genetic encoding of specific antigens. These vaccines replace the older modified live and killed antigen vaccines. The new vaccines:

  • Are extremely safe
  • Provide excellent duration of immunity
  • Are very efficient
  • Minimize vaccine reactions. Only the safest and best for your pet
