Kitten's CornerLearn More About Your Kitten
Your kitten will usually require three vaccinations, three to four weeks apart, from 8 weeks old.
Young kittens are very susceptible to a bad bout of cat flu or infectious enteritis, both of which can be fatal at a young age.
Unfortunately the smaller the kitten is, the harder it get hit when it comes to infectious diseases. So, it is important to get vaccinations started as soon as possible.
Remember your kitten is not fully immunized until two weeks after the last vaccination as their immune system needs this time to respond.
Please contact us for further information on vaccinating your kitten or cat.
Kittens become infected with hookworms & roundworms via their mother when they are young kittens. Tapeworms are spread via fleas.
Worms are more than a nuisance; they can have severe health problems in cats & especially young kittens. Heavy burdens of worms can cause weight loss, vomiting and diarrhoea, irritation around the anus and failure to thrive.
Kittens should be dewormed since 2 weeks-old, every 2 weeks until the kitten is 2 months old. Then, follow by monthly deworming until the kitten is 6 month-old.
Please contact us if you require any further information on worming your cat or kitten.
Worming your kitten
Spay & Neuter
One of the things a cat is more than good at is reproducing.
They manage to do this at a much younger age than you would imagine. So we recommend neutering (male) or spaying (female) your kitten at 5½-6 months of age.
Kittens are often weaned from 3 weeks onwards and have no problem crunching on dry food by 5-6 weeks of age.
Your kitten should be fed on a balanced diet especially formulated to suit its stage of life. We recommend a premium brand kitten biscuit, as they are made from high quality ingredients and provide all the nourishment a kitten needs.
Kittens can regulate their food intake well and so meals can be offered often but it is alright to leave a few biscuits out at all times for your kitten to eat. Two or three main meals spread throughout the day are best with kitten biscuits available at any time.
Changes in diet should be made gradually as sudden changes can cause diarrhea and other problems.
Your dog should be registered with your local council and a dog tag will be provided. We suggest you also attach a personalised tag including your phone number.
Another more permanent form of identification is called microchip. Microchipping is a procedure involving the placement of an electronic chip (about the size of a rice grain) under the skin at the back of your pet’s neck. It is very simple and your pet will feel little pain. Once done, your pet’s details, and your contact address and phone numbers are entered on our clinic database.
If your pet is ever lost, a veterinarian anywhere in Malaysia can scan your dog for the microchip and the chances of having them returned to you are greatly increased.
