Kitten Health Program & Vaccination Schedule

Campbell Hall, NY Veterinary Care for Your Feline Friend

Congratulations on bringing a new kitten into your family! At Otterkill Animal Hospital, we want to help you keep your kitten healthy and happy. Regularly scheduled vaccinations and routine examinations are important to protect your cat’s health and boost their immunity to numerous diseases. The examination we perform at your cat’s routine visits will help us detect any common kitten-hood problems or illnesses. Do not hesitate to ask us questions or raise any concerns you have about your cat’s health. We accept patients from Campbell Hall, Montgomery, and the surrounding areas.

Routine Cat Exams

Annual examinations are important for cats of all ages. Kittens should visit us for several exams during the first few months of their life. Our cat veterinarians in Campbell Hall make certain that your kitten is thoroughly checked from nose to tail for any health problems. This annual exam is the most important action you can take to keep your furry friend in great shape.

Kitten Vaccination Schedule

Below is a schedule of visits and vaccinations that we ask cat owners to follow:

6-8 weeks old:

  • First examination
  • First FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia Psittaci)
  • Bring a fresh stool sample so we may check for intestinal parasites; refrigerate the sample

9-12 weeks old:

  • Second examination
  • Second FVRCP. This is done 3-4 weeks after the first FVRCP

12+ weeks old:

  • Rabies vaccination and examination. This first rabies vaccination is good for only one year; subsequent vaccinations last for three years.
  • Bring a fresh stool sample so we may check for intestinal parasites; refrigerate the sample

13-16 weeks old:

  • Third examination
  • Third FVRCP. This is done 3-4 weeks after the second vaccination
  • The FVRCP vaccine will last for one year and will then need to be boostered at three-year intervals. This booster concludes the series of routine kitten vaccinations.

If a kitten starts the series at an early age, four vaccinations may be needed; if it starts at a later age, two vaccinations may be needed in the series.
