At Mountain Empire Small Animal Hospital, we love new kittens and we can’t wait to meet the newest addition to your family. We want to partner with you to keep your unconditionally-loving companion, friend and new family member healthy and happy. For your kitten's long term health, our veterinarians recommend that we examine your kitten as soon as possible to identify any potential health issues early on. We will answer all your questions about caring for your kitten, including food and nutrition questions, vaccinations, other health topics and behavioral issues.
Talk to us about your kitten’s nutritional needs and the proper food for your kitten. There are so many food choices available on the market we want you to be able to choose the right food for your kitten. Your kitten's diet can make all the difference in his or her future health and well-being.
We recommend testing your kitten for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. Testing for these diseases is very important, especially if you have another cat in the house. We recommend annual vaccinations for all cats; outdoor cats should be on a heartworm preventative, fleas and tick preventative, and be examined for ear mites and intestinal parasites. We also recommend that all cats be spayed or neutered.
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 to make sure your kitten will remain healthy over his or her lifetime.
