Kitten Vaccination Schedule
A protected response is what the veterinarian is aiming for when vaccinating your kitten,
priming the immune system to produce antibodies and neutralize infectious organisms
before they have a chance to induce disease. Ideally, this is achieved through a standard schedule involving vaccines at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age.
Variations to a schedule become necessary when, for instance, a kitten is vaccinated
at 8 weeks of age, then does not visit the veterinarian again until 16 weeks of age.
A minimum of two injections approximately 3-4 weeks apart with the last injection
occurring at greater than 12 weeks of age is necessary.
7 - 9 WEEKS OF AGE
12 WEEKS OF AGE
16 WEEKS OF AGE
6 MONTHS OF AGE
Microchip pet identification may be done at any time, although many people choose to have this done at the time of the spay or neuter since it saves the pet a bit of discomfort.
Why deworm regularly? Some of the most prevalent intestinal worms such as roundworm and hookworm may affect humans ("zoonoses"), especially children and people with suppressed immune systems. Which treatment is most appropriate for your pet? Please consult with our veterinarians.
