Bringing home your new kitten is exciting and can be a very rewarding experience for the whole family. Getting off to the right start with any new pet involves an initial visit to the veterinarian for a check-up and to schedule future wellness visits. All kittens require a series of vaccinations and periodic worming to ensure a healthy start to a long and happy life.
Your kitten’s first visit to GVH will include a complete health evaluation and the first in the recommended series of vaccines to be given every 3-4 weeks until your kitten is 16 weeks of age. Your kitten’s bodyweight will be recorded in order to monitor growth and you and your veterinarian will discuss nutrition, feeding, litter training, spaying or castration and other aspects of kitten care. You are welcome to schedule your kitten’s future vaccination appointments during this first visit.
