Essential Kitten Care Tips

Are you considering adding a kitten to your family? If so, it is important to take her a veterinarian for a checkup as soon as practical, once she comes into your care.

This video offers some tips on how to look after a new kitten. First, your kitten will need a nose to tail examination by a licensed veterinarian. At a pet hospital, a veterinarian can check for obvious and not-so-obvious signs of illness and get your kitten up-to-date on vaccinations, deworming and feline heartworm prevention. Second, once you bring your kitten home, allow her some space and time to adjust. Though family members may be eager to play with a new kitten, a young feline is quick to tire, sometimes a little nervous, and must have adequate rest.
