Royal Oak Pet Clinic


Your new kitten should visit a veterinarian as soon as possible. The initial visit will include a thorough physical examination to determine your kitten’s state of health. Dr. Chambers will check for external parasites (fleas, ticks, lice, ear mites) and for internal parasites (tapeworm, roundworm). Initial vaccinations will be administered and you will discuss the types of vaccinations your kitten needs and when they should be scheduled and receive advice about when your kitten should be spayed or neutered. This first health check will give your veterinarian the information she needs to advise you on your kitten’s diet and care.

FAQs About Kittens

What is the vaccine protocol for kittens?

Kittens recieve 3 sets of boosters. Ideally, the first set is done at 8 weeks old, then every 4 weeks after that. The first booster is FVRCP combo vaccine. The second booster is 2nd FVRCP combo and 1st leukemia and the third set is 3rd FVRCP combo, 2nd leukemia and rabies.

Why should I spay/neuter my kitten?

The decision to spay or neuter your cat is an important one for cat owners. But it can be the single best decision you make for their long term welfare.

  • Spaying/Neutering your cat can improve their overall health
  • Prevent roaming
  • Reduce unruly behavior

Why should I microchip my kitten?

Micro chipping your kittens is an excellent means of identification. It won’t fade over time like a tattoo or fall off like a tag. A needle is used to place a little chip under the animal’s skin, between the shoulder blades. That chip has a unique number on it that can be picked up and read by a scanner. The chip traces to your address and phone number.
