Kitten Wellness

Congratulations on your new kitten! Thank you for choosing Wayland Animal Clinic to help protect and care for the new addition to your family. It is our mission to make it easy and enjoyable for you to protect and care for your pet. Please contact us anytime with questions!

Our kitten wellness protocol is designed to help get your kitten started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your kitten’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help him or her grow into a well-mannered, healthy cat, including information and advice on nutrition, litterbox training, and behavior.

Schedule your kitten for his or her first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new pet is protected against rabies and panleukopenia (distemper). Depending on your cat’s risk, we may also advise vaccinating him or her against other diseases, such as feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). In addition, your kitten will need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young cats.

If your new kitten is your first pet, you might be a new client at Wayland Animal Clinic. If so, please make sure to check out the New Clients section of our website.

We look forward to meeting your new kitten! Schedule your appointment today.
