Kitten Wellness – start off on the right paw!!

Kitten wellness includes your new kitten veterinary services from 6 weeks of age to 12 weeks of age. Involved in this time frame is a series of examinations and vaccinations including rabies, panleukopenia (distemper), leukemia, etc. In addition, your kitten will be tested for worms and be treated for the most common intestinal worm of kittens – roundworms. Roundworms can cause your kitten to vomit and / or experience diarrhea; however, it is possible for your kitten to have roundworms and not show any signs of harboring the worms. A microscopic fecal examination could detect the presence of these worms. The examination will also look for other types of worms that can affect your kitten.
