Congratulations on your new, fluffy arrival. If this is your first time being a proud humum or dad you’ll need to know the necessary health care your new kitten will require.
Vaccinations are important to protect your kitten against infectious and potentially fatal diseases. Kittens are usually given their first vaccination at nine-weeks-old and the second at 12-weeks-old. After these initial vaccinations your cat should be given yearly vaccinations.
Kittens can get flea treatment from eight-weeks-old. We recommend getting the product from your vet, as they will give the correct dose based on your kitten’s weight. You should repeat the flea treatment every three months.
To protect your kitten against worms you’ll need to get a routine worming treatment. Kittens need to take a worming tablet once every two weeks until they are 12-weeks-old. Then monthly until they are six-monnths-old and finally after six months all cats need to be wormed every three months. Again, we recommend getting the tablet from your vet.
Good luck with your new furbaby!
