What to Expect on Your Kitten's First Visit to the Veterinarian
A Learning Experience for You and Your Kitten
Your first kitten visit will be an extensive learning experience! We want to give you all the tools needed to care for your new furry family member. First kitten visits will allow plenty of time for you to ask questions and make sure you have all the information you need to raise a happy, healthy kitten.
Your visit will begin with a "kitten talk" from one of our experienced nurses. They will send you home with a packet of brochures, samples and written documents on how to care for your new kitten. We will go over the most up to date behavior and training information and help you with litter box training, getting your cat into a carrier and how to introduce your new kitten to other pets and children.
Action Plan for Vaccination and Care Schedule
Each kitten receives a clay paw print so you can remember their cute little paws! You will go home with a first free dose of heartworm prevention. Each kitten gets an action plan where we lay out a plan with you for vaccine schedules. Each kitten gets a massage at each appointment because we want to help get them used to being touched for future visits as an adult cat.
We are a Cat Friendly Practice
We pride ourselves on being a cat friendly practice (gold certified) and will never scruff your kitten. They will have gentle, loving handling from their very first visit which will help us continue to be able to handle them as adult cats. It is important that they do not fear the vet and that they are comfortable here, and that starts with their very first kitten appointment!
We are so excited for kitty snuggles and hope you schedule your kitten's first vet visit right away!
