What Vaccinations does my kitten/cat need?


Kittens require a vaccination against potentially fatal diseases. This consists of 2 vaccinations done 3 - 4 weeks apart.


Your kitten will then need a booster vaccination each year.


Do not let your kitten come into contact with any other cats until a week after their second vaccination. Carry your kitten in a secure pet carrier when visiting the vet.




The most effective type of wormer can be bought from your vet and will kill all types of worms. Some of these worms can be harmful to people so it is important to worm them regularly throughout their lives.


When should I worm?


Kittens & Junior cats (under 6 months of age) - every month until the age of 6 months.


Adult cats – every 3 months


(all the above is dependant on the worming product used, please check with a member of staff)




Fleas are commonly found on both dogs and cats. It is important to use flea prevention all year. The only effective way of preventing fleas is to use a product that actually kills fleas. These can only be purchased from your vet. Flea shampoos, collars etc can not offer very effective protection.


There are different types of products and some last for 1 month and others for 2 months. Check with your vet how often you will need to apply the product you purchase. It is very important that all animals in the house are treated on a regular basis. If fleas are found on the animal then the house must be treated as well as 95% of the fleas will be in the house not on the animals.
