Keeping Your Pet On A Stress Free Path To Wellness

Kitten evaluations:

Things to consider

1.  Vaccinate with a series of boosters to give your kitten immunity against contagious diseases.

2.  Sound nutrition is the foundation on which your kittens health is built. Please feed the highest quality food available to you.

3. Protect your kitten against internal parasites. Follow CDC recommendations by deworming as a kitten, then repeat yearly. Have a stool exam at least once a year, more often if parasites have been a problem. 

4.  Protect against external parasites as well. Apply topical flea and tick prevention all year round.

5.  Provide your pet with the following items:

  • Food and water bowls

  • Litter boxe(s)

  • Bed

  • Toys

  • Car carrier

  • Brush

  • Nail clippers


7.  Spend time while your kitten is young, getting them accustomed to different people and experiences:

  • Car rides

  • Interaction with children and strangers

  • Grooming & brushing
