Tips for new kitten parents

Tips for New Kitten Parents

Bringing a new kitten into your home provides you with plenty of companionship. Being a new kitten parent also comes with a lot of responsibilities. From nutrition to microchipping, TLC for Pets is here to help guide you as you raise your kitten. Our veterinarians in Reisterstown would like to offer some helpful advice on caring for your new kitten.

Kittens Need Proper Nutrition

Kittens need the right types and amounts of nutrients to help them grow up to be healthy cats. If you are not sure what to feed your kitten, our veterinary team can help. We can let you know which foods provide the nutrients your kitten needs. We can also recommend the right amount of kitten food to ensure your new pet is eating enough but not overeating.

Kittens Need Vaccinations

Rabies, feline distemper, and other vaccinations are important for kittens to protect them from potentially fatal diseases. Keep in mind that your new kitten is required to have certain vaccines, such as rabies vaccines. Other vaccinations are recommended but not required. We can let you know when to bring your kitten in for vaccinations and booster shots as they get older.

Kittens Should Have Microchipping Done

Having a microchip means your new kitten has a form of ID that helps others get in touch with you if your pet is lost. Microchipping involves having a tiny microchip inserted that has your contact information, such as your name, phone number, and address. Microchipping can give you peace of mind in case your kitten becomes lost.

Kittens Need Routine Exams

Routine veterinary exams are a good way to find out if your kitten is healthy. Our vet can look for health issues during these exams. You can also bring up any concerns you have about your new kitten, such as health or behavioral concerns.
