Kitten Vaccine Schedule

Our doctors and staff strive to practice only the highest level of quality preventive medical care for our patients.

Our immunization protocol is aimed at providing the best defense against life-threatening diseases while not overwhelming or damaging your pet's immune systemKitten. Visits begin at six to nine weeks of age and continue every three to four weeks until the series is complete.

With medical advances being made in vaccines and disease prevention, we will continue to tailor immunization needs to each of our patient's individual lifestyles. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best medical care for a long and healthy life.
