Your kitten's vaccination may vary based on their lifestyle. He or she may not need all vaccinations listed.

Deworming Schedule
Kittens have a high likelihood of being born with intestinal parasites (worms). You may see no signs of a parasite infestation. To properly maintain your kittens health, kittens should be dewormed on a regular basis. Please look at our deworming guidelines below.
  • Beginning at 3 weeks, every 2 weeks until your kitten is 3 months old.
  • At 3-6 months once every 4 weeks.

Nail Trimming
To keep you kitten's paws healthy and get them used getting their nails trimmed as they get older, we recommend you touch and play with your kitten paws. Trimming their nails on a regular basis makes the procedure less stressful and, it becomes a routine rather than a bad experience or a fearful situation.


Kitten Mouths
It is a good idea to open your kitten's mouth and look and touch their teeth and gums. By doing this your kitten gets familiar with this idea and it will be easier when you need to give medications or need to take something from your kitten's mouth. As your kitten gets older and matures he or she will be used to you opening their mouth and medicating is less likely to be a problem.


Kitten Ears
It is a good idea to look in and play with your kitten's ears. By doing this your kitten gets familiar with this idea and it will be easier when you need to give medications or clean your kitten's ears. Kitten's need to have their ears cleaned at least once a month. One of the most common office visits for kittens is ear problems including ear mites. Using an approved veterinary ear cleaner will keep their ears from getting infections and wax build up. As your kitten gets older and matures he or she will be used to you cleaning their ears and medicating is less likely to be a problem.


Scratching
Kittens need something to scratch, this is an instinctive behavior. Get your kitten a scratching post. This will provide something to scratch rather than your furniture.


Grooming
It is a good idea to brush out your kitten regularly. By doing this you free up loose hair that would normally be swallowed by your kitten as it grooms itself. This will help minimize hairballs and prevent matting. Plus your kitten will have a nice and shiny coat.


Spaying & Neutering
AVH will spay (females) and neuter (males) kittens at 6 months old. If you do not plan on breeding your cat we recommend spaying and neutering. There are many reasons for doing so. Just to name a few: mixed mating, population control, to help prevent spraying, unwanted kittens, and there are health reasons as well.
