Kitten Vaccination Program
The complete vaccination course consists of two injections given three weeks apart: Kittens get their first vaccine at 9 weeks of age and their second one at 12 weeks of age.
This also includes:
FREE HEALTH CHECK
FREE FLEA TREATMENT
FREE FOUR WEEKS PET INSURANCE
PLUS DISCOUNTED MICRO CHIPPING
Having your kitten vaccinated is the most important thing you can do to protect them against disease. We routinely vaccinate against four feline infectious diseases :
Feline Panleucopaenia Virus
Feline Leukaemia Virus.
Annual Adult Booster Vaccinations
The annual booster vaccinations, especially the one at 15 months of age, are extremely important to boost immunity against the diseases. Every year we see cases of diseases that are perfectly preventable by an annual vaccination.
From around the age of 5 to 8 months, kittens reach sexual maturity and are therefore capable of breeding and producing kittens themselves! Neutering a cat - castration in the male (removal of the testes), and spaying the female (removal of the ovaries and uterus) - not only prevents unwanted pregnancies occurring, but also helps prevent unwanted behaviours associated with sexual maturity and reduces the risk of certain diseases.
We normally neuter cats at 6 months of age.
The BSAVA Kitten Guide provides lots of helpful advice for those important first months with your new kitten. (See the weblink page for the link to the guide).
Worms and fleas
Kittens need to be wormed on a monthly basis until they are four months old and then every three months after that.
Here at Brownlow Veterinary Group we advise that our Flea treatments are applied every 8 weeks.
