What to Expect At Your First Kitten Wellness Appointment

When you call to book an appointment for your kitten you will be asked to bring in a fecal sample so the sample can be tested for intestinal parasites.

We examine the stool sample under the microscope for eggs that are passed by worms. These eggs are microscopic and not visible with the naked eye, which is why microscopic examination is needed for identification. Often the stool sample looks normal to the naked eye. If worms are identified in your kitten’s stool your kitten will be placed on appropriate medication.

During your first kitten visit we will examine your kitten and discuss a variety of topics including:

  • Diet
  • Vaccinations
  • Flea prevention
  • Feline leukemia
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus blood testing
  • When to spay or neuter your kitten
  • The possibility of declawing your kitten
  • We will also answer any questions that you might have


Don’t delay your kitten’s first visit to the vet.  Addressing potential health problems for your kitten now will make their transition into your family less stressful and healthier for all of you! Contact us today to book a kitten wellness appointment.
