Kitten Vaccinations

Vaccinations are an important first step to the overall health of your kitten. This helps build a strong immune system to fight certain viruses present in the environment.

When should kittens get their first vaccination?

Kittens should get their first vaccinations at 8 weeks.

How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?

Kittens need to be vaccinated at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?

Kittens need more than just core vaccines if they are exposed to an outdoor environment. Leukemia is recommended as it is highly contagious by coming into contact with other cats with the disease.
