At Shiloh Veterinary Hospital, we want to make sure that your new companion receives everything he or she needs to grow up healthy and strong, so please bring your new pet in as soon as possible for a check-up.
During your initial visit, we will perform a comprehensive examination to detect if your kitten has any potential health issues. We will also examine your pet for intestinal parasites and perform deworming if necessary. We also ask that you bring the health information provided to you by the seller or shelter on your first visit with us, which should include a previous history of vaccines and deworming.
While your kitten is quickly growing, their developing immune systems leaves them more vulnerable to illness, so please talk to our veterinarians about the ideal preventative treatment schedule that meets their needs. After the first few months, we recommend that you bring your cat in at least twice a year to ensure that he or she is maintaining a course of good health.
If you have any questions concerning care for your cat such as diet and nutrition, behavioral issues, litter training, or vaccinations, we are more than happy to discuss them with you.
