Gladstone-Vet-KITTEN CARE kitten profile

Each kitten visit includes a discussion of development, training, and behavior, a nutritional evaluation, as well as a full physical examination. Kitten vaccine boosters are recommended every 3-4 weeks starting at 6-9 weeks of age and repeated until the kitten is at least 16 weeks of age, when maternal antibodies wane and his or her immune system can develop protective immunity for the next year. For older kittens starting vaccinations at 12 weeks of age or later, at least two doses of vaccines given 3-4 weeks apart are required for full protection.
