WHEN SHOULD I START VACCINATING MY KITTEN?

You should start vaccinating your kitten at about 8 weeks of age which is when the immunity that it gets from its mother begins to wear off. It is important so as to avoid the diseases that can harm your kitten. There are two big categories, the first is parasites, which is generally internal, such as worms but can be external such as fleas. The second broad category is infectious diseases. Although distemper is much less common now, it can be devastating to kittens, feline leukemia is another and there are many, many more. We encourage all new kitten owners to set an appointment and start having your kittens examined and vaccinated at a young age so that they can live long and healthy lives..
