It is a great joy to have a kitten in your home. If you are new to raising a young cat, you might not be aware of all that goes into their care. That is why it is ideal to have an experienced, dependable veterinarian on your side. If you live in Reisterstown, Owings Mills, or the surrounding area, our veterinarians at TLC for Pets can help you provide a strong foundation for your new pet’s health and happiness.
Wellness Exams for Kittens
We offer wellness exams right from the time you have adopted your pet. This way, we can check on your cat’s growth by weighing it and perform a nose to tail examination looking for any health issues as early as possible. As with most medical issues, the earlier you detect a problem, often the easier it is to treat.
Kittens should get their vaccinations from a young age. This will prevent them from getting rabies or other preventable illnesses. Make sure to bring along any paperwork that is related to your kitten’s previous veterinary care. We will determine a proper vaccination schedule based on your pet’s health and other factors.
Spaying and Neutering
Once a kitten reaches the proper size and weight for its age, the cat should be spayed or neutered. This prevents the animal not only from reproducing but also from developing certain reproductive cancers. It also tends to improve the cat’s temperament.
A tiny microchip roughly the size of a grain of rice is inserted beneath your pet’s skin. The chip remains there for the pet’s entire life. The chip will contain a serial number that is linked to your contact information in a national database. This microchip greatly increases the odds of being reunited with your cat if it escapes your home or yard and gets lost. The veterinarian or animal shelter staff member will scan your cat and contact you right away to inform you it has been found.
Pet Dental Services
It is important to take care of your cat's oral health. Schedule a dental examination and cleaning early on so that your cat becomes used to this routine. Our veterinarians will inspect your cat’s mouth checking for gum disease and dental issues.
