Here are a few pointers to consider before bringing your new kitten home:
Once the new kitten is home, we want to help get them started on the right foot so they can enjoy a long life with their new family.
Here is a list of recommended veterinary to-dos for your new kitten:
Our veterinary team recommends spaying or neutering all pets. It not only guarantees your pet won't become pregnant or impregnate another pet, but it can also help prevent some health issues— including certain cancers— and behavioral issues.
The spaying/neutering procedure is perfectly safe and routine, and your pet will be safely given general anesthesia throughout the procedure. The recovery from spay/neuter surgery is short and relatively painless– your pet may experience mild discomfort for a few days and then will be back to their old self without any changes in their personality or physical health.
If you have any questions about spaying/neutering, including the best age to have the procedure completed (generally, the younger the better), feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any and all of your questions.
As pet owners ourselves, we know that the thought of losing a beloved pet is enough to make one anxious. We hope to minimize the risk of pet loss by recommending microchip identification for all our patients. Microchipping is a simple, painless procedure that protects against permanent pet loss. The microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is encoded with your contact information and implanted underneath the pet’s skin in the same way a vaccine is administered. Should your pet ever be lost, veterinary clinics and animal shelters across the country are equipped with special scanners that can read the information stored in a microchip and make sure your pet is returned safely to you.
While collars and tags are important, they can be damaged, lost, or removed, making a microchip the only form ofpermanent identification for your pet. We highly recommend microchipping as a safe, simple, and effective way to prevent pet loss.
