Preventive Care Schedule for Kittens

Like all babies, kittens need regular examinations and appropriate vaccinations to start life healthy and develop immunity to common infections. Preventive care for kittens begins at six to eight weeks of age; exams and vaccines are performed every 2-4 weeks until they are about four months old. Our low-stress approach to care helps start kittens off right so they aren’t afraid of vising the veterinarian later in life.
