First injection – from 9 weeks old
Second injection – 3 weeks after first injection.
Can be allowed outside one week later.
Many owners choose to wait until their kitten is older and has been neutered before letting them outside.
Recommended if your cat is going outdoors/into catteries.
Annual vaccinations are required to ensure protection against: Cat flu (Calicivirus and Rhinotracheitis virus), enteritis (panleucopenia) and Feline Leukaemia (optional).
Your kitten should be wormed every 2 weeks from 6 weeks old until 12 weeks. Thereafter worm every 3 months.
Cats can pick up worms from the environment continuously so need regular worming. You will not necessarily see the worms in their faeces.
Cats can pick up fleas from the outside but also fleas can be brought into your home on clothing.
We recommend year-round flea treatment but especially in the warm summer months.
The vet/nurse will be able to advise you on the best product for your pet.
The microchip is the size of a grain of rice which is inserted into the cat’s scruff like an injection. It can be done at any age, but many owners will wait until neutering so that the chip is inserted whilst the animal is under anaesthetic.
It is a permanent form of identification.
If your cat is found and taken to any vets/police station/rescue centre they can identify your pet if it is microchipped.
We recommend neutering all cats unless you have planned to breed from your cat.
This is called spaying in females and castration in males.
This is done from 5 months of age.
We strongly recommend you insure your pet however we cannot advise you on which company or policy. Look at a variety and ensure that they offer ‘Lifetime Cover’.
Please contact the surgery for more information and prices.
