Our kitten wellness program is designed to offer your new kitten all the benefits of our veterinary services available to him or her from 6 weeks of age to 12 weeks of age. Included in this service is a series of examinations and vaccinations including rabies, panleukopenia (distemper), rhinotracheitis, leukemia, etc. In addition, your kitten will be tested for worms and be treated for the most common intestinal worm of kittens – roundworms. Most roundworm infections do not have symptoms, but occasionally may cause your kitten to vomit and / or experience diarrhea. A microscopic fecal examination could detect the presence of these worms. The examination will also look for other types of worms that can affect your kitten.
We will also help simplify flea control options. Cats and kittens can be extremely sensitive to flea control products. Some available products may even cause seizures in cats. Never hesitate to call us for advice before applying any product to your kitten.
Dr. Todd and the team at Fonthill Animal Hospital are a wonderful resource for you and your kitten. Whether you have questions about litter choices, toys, behavioural concerns, nutrition, or integrating your kitten with other cats – we are here to help, just a phone call away!
