To get you started we have created a handout for your new kitten, however this includes all the foundation information to help your kitten through to their adult life. From vaccination programs, worming schedules, flea treatments and feeding.

Kittens are vaccinated against calicivirus and rhinovirus ( the “cat flu” viruses) and feline enteritis at 6-8 weeks, 12-14 weeks and 16-18 weeks of age. Other diseases such as Feline Leukaemia and Feline Aids virus can also be vaccinated against, if your kitten will be at risk later on.
Annual booster vaccinations are recommended but if your cat is at low risk, such as being indoors only, less frequent boosters may be appropriate, our vets will help advise you in these cases.
Because these diseases are extremely contagious try not to take your puppy or kitten out of their house or yard until they are fully vaccinated. We do recommend an annual health check and physical examination in between boosters. As our pets age so much faster then humans do so it is important to make sure they are fit, healthy and well.
