KITTEN'S FIRST VET VISIT
Time for Your Kitten’s First Vet Visit in Scarborough, Toronto?
If you have adopted a new kitten, preparing for its basic care needs is essential. Making sure your pet is healthy is one of the most important aspects of being a pet owner. A thorough physical examination of your pet by a veterinarian is one of these aspects. This is not only good for your kitten’s health but also to prevent any communicable diseases. The best time to visit a vet is 8 weeks after its birth. During this time, it is important to build a relationship between your pet and the vet, as your cat should stay calm when going for routine check-ups.

Here are some of the things you should consider while preparing your kitten for its first vet visit:
When you arrive at the hospital, you will be required to do some paperwork. Your address, telephone number, and workplace information will be collected. This information is required to develop a medical record for your kitten. During a physical examination, we will check its weight, teeth and gums, signs of parasites, vison, hearing, and lungs to make sure your furry friend is healthy. It is important to make your kitten undergo all these tests before he/she joins your family. Vaccination time is determined during your kitten’s first visit to Bellamy-Lawrence Animal Hospital. Your kitten will be administered with a vaccination that includes vaccines against various viruses, parasites, and diseases. Please discuss with our veterinarians before administering any vaccines.
Your pet will also be administered with a dewormer. At the end of the visit, we will let you know when you should bring your kitten back for any additional vaccinations. If you need more information about your kitten’s first vet visit in Toronto, contact us today!
