Visiting the Vets: Kittens

new kitten lifestyle 9 bustercollarThe first time your kitten visits us is likely to be their Free Initial Health Check or First Vaccinations if these haven't been carried out by the breeder.  Allow a few days at home for your new pet to settle before bringing them for their health check.

  • If possible start to get them accustomed to being in the car for short journeys before their first visit to the vet
  • To help get your kitten accustomed to being in a cat basket leave the open basket in the house so your kitten can explore it.  Spraying it with Feliway can help your cat to feel more relaxed in its basket.
  • Don't feed your kitten just before leaving and ensure that they've had an opportunity to go to the toilet.
  • It's a good idea to help your pet get accustomed to visiting the vet so that they don't find it a stressful experience.  Popping in regularly for a weight check once they've had their full course of vaccinations is a good way to get accustomed to visiting the vets.
