Kitten Vaccinations

Caring for Your Kitten

One type of pet we can care for is kittens. If you have a new kitten, you’re probably curious about how to care for him. Although you'll be excited about bringing your kitten home, it's a good idea to make an appointment for his first pet wellness visit.

In addition to a complete physical examination, a veterinarian on our veterinary team will give your kitten the necessary cat vaccinations. Vaccinations are generally categorized as core vaccinations (the most important ones) and non-core vaccinations.

Core and non-Core Vaccinations

The core vaccinations include a combination of different vaccines that protect your pet from different kinds of dangerous diseases. These diseases can be very harmful to your pet’s health if he contacts them and can even lead to your cat’s death. Thankfully, vaccines can protect your pet from these diseases so you don’t have to worry.

Non-core vaccinations are recommended based on certain circumstances, such as where your pet lives or his type of lifestyle. A vet on our team can give you more information about what kinds of non-core vaccines may be recommended for your kitten.

Rabies Prevention

Rabies is a viral disease you won’t want your kitten to get. If your cat becomes infected with rabies, and it’s left untreated, it could be fatal. Although outdoor cats are more likely to get rabies - since they are more likely to meet a rabid animal - all kittens should be vaccinated against rabies.
