Kitten Wellness and Socialization
Kittens can be born with viral diseases, or get them from their mothers through nursing!
So we screen all kittens for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and Felv (feline leukemia virus).
Almost all kittens are born with intestinal parasites from their mothers!
So we administer broad-spectrum dewormers, and perform thorough testing when stools are irregular.
Training Hint: Cats cannot be trained ! They never give in, they just change their minds!
Never try to punish a cat. It just doesn't work. You have to change the world around the cat, not the cat.
Introducing cats into the home, and setting the stage for a good litter box behavior.
Thorough physical exams can detect congenital problems, and common kittenhood infections and parasites.
Just like humans, vaccinations are critical at this stage of life!
