The doctors and staff of Gilbertsville Veterinary Hospital want to make sure your kitten receives the proper care during its lifetime. The following wellness plan outlines your kitten’s first few visits to the hospital and regular wellness visits as they mature.

Kittens are born with immature immune systems and require a series of vaccinations to help protect them from their environment.  They are also prone to intestinal parasites which can either be passed from their mother or contracted from their environment.  Fecal examinations are an important diagnostic tool that will help the doctors identify if your cat has intestinal parasites.

Please remember that all wellness plans may be altered depending on your pets’ individual needs.
