Kitten Exams and Vaccinations

Kittens are delicate and after about six weeks of age lose the protective immunity passed to them by their mother. Kittens should have four sets of vaccinations and exams to be considered completely vaccinated and protected.

  • Six weeks of age: First kitten exam, intestinal parasite testing and first kitten vaccination (rhinotracheitis, calici virus, panleukopenia and chalmidia). Kittens should also be started on heartworm prevention and if outside started on flea prevention.
  • Nine weeks of age: Second kitten exam, intestinal parasite testing and second kitten vaccination (rhinotracheitis, calici virus, panleukopenia and chalmidia). Kittens should continue on heartworm prevention and flea prevention.
  • Twelve weeks of age: Third kitten exam, third kitten vaccination (rhinotracheitis, calici virus, panleukopenia and chalmidia), and initial rabies vaccination. If the kittens will be outside at all they should get their first leukemia vaccination. Kittens should continue on heartworm and flea prevention.
  • Sixteen weeks of age: Fourth kitten exam and fourth kitten vaccination (rhinotracheitis, calici virus, panleukopenia and chalmidia). If they received a leukemia vaccination at the pervious visit the will receive a booster vaccine. Kittens should continue on their heartworm and flea prevention.
