My kitten will stay indoors, are vaccines still necessary?
Even if you plan to keep your kitten indoors, you still need to build their immunity to potentially infectious and fatal diseases. Your kitten will need several sets of boosters to provide them with as much protection as possible. In order for immunizations to be effective, it is essential that you are on time for your kitten’s scheduled vaccinations. You can never be 100% certain that your kitten will never go outside or be introduced to a new kitten / cat at a later date. Also, be mindful of your own exposure. You or visitors to you home can inadvertently carry diseases in on clothing and shoes. By keeping your cat up to date with core vaccinations, you can protect them against diseases frequently found in the cat population.
More than just vaccines. Why physical examinations performed by the vet are so important.
At each visit, our veterinarian is going to check your kitten over. They will be listening to their heart and lungs, checking for any unusual signs/symptoms, development issues, and checking for skin, coat, eye and ear problems. They are here to answer any questions you may have about your new kitten and even provide nutritional advice!
