Immunization against the common feline viruses is very important. Vaccines for Panleukopenia, Rhinotrachevirus and Calici are generally given at 8, 12, & 16 weeks. Feline Leukemia Vaccine typically is NOT given to indoor only cats from FeLV negative, planned breedings - nor do we recommend vaccination for chlamydia. And finally, Rabies vaccine (where required by law) is given after 16 weeks and again at 1 year. Boosters are then needed every three years in order to insure protection against these common and potentially serious diseases. It is also a good idea to have a stool tested for parasites at least once as a kitten. Please make the necessary appointments with your Vet. Unless your kitten/cat has already been neuter or spayed and has been MicroChiped, you will need to arrange this with your veterinarian. Neuter or Spay can be done early but many vets prefer to wait until the kitten is at least 5 lbs or six months of age. Also might need to delay a bit longer for males if testicles are not fully descended).
