Kitten Package

An Overview of Suggested Veterinary Care for Your New Kitten

Just as with new babies, a new kitten needs to be protected from viruses and bacteria that can harm their health now and in the years to come. Below we have outlined some of the vaccines that your new pet needs in order to have a long and healthy life.

Feline Distemper

Feline distemper, also referred to as Panleukopenia, is widespread in nature, so all cats are exposed to it within their first year of life. It can be transmitted through feces, urine, food and water bowls, clothing, shoes, hands, bedding and litter boxes. It can also be transmitted from the mother to the developing kittens prior to birth.

Feline Upper Respiratory Viruses

URI viruses are caused by a group of diseases, most are viral and highly contagious. Signs can range from the sniffles to severe eye and nasal discharge, fever and pneumonia. Severe cases can be fatal. Vaccination is the only hope of prevention, but may not be 100% effective.

Feline Leukemia Virus

FeLV-infected cats are worldwide. Prevalence of infections varies greatly depending on their age, health and living conditions. It can also be transmitted by mutual grooming, feeding dishes and from an infected mother to her kittens. Kittens are much more susceptible to infections. FELV is most prevalent in stray cats that fight. Is there any possibility that your cat could get outside, even for a few seconds an encounter the neighbor cat? Your kitten needs protection.

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus

FIV is a virus comparable to HIV in humans. It is easily spread between cats by bite wounds and close contact.
