New Kitten

At Garston Veterinary Group we are always delighted to meet new additions to the family. We understand that bringing home a kitten is an exciting and often new experience, so we try to make your visits to the vets as helpful as possible.

Our kitten vaccination course starts with a first vaccination from 9 weeks of age, with the second vaccination 3 weeks later. Kittens are ready to explore the great outdoors 7 days after their second vaccination.

What to expect on your first visit

You will have a 20 minute consultation with the nurse usually before seeing the vet. Our nurses are fully trained with some being Pet Health Counsellors in addition to their other qualifications. They will weigh your kitten, discuss fleas, worms, insurance, microchipping, diet, behaviour, neutering…. Anything you like really!

You will receive a Kitten Pack. This is a really useful pack for any new kitten owner, we have spent time keeping it up to date with the most useful product information leaflets for you. We have also included fact sheets about neutering plus a complimentary voucher for your kitten to try Royal Canin’s growth diet

10 minute consultation with the vet. The vet will give your kitten a full top to tail health check up, once the vet is pleased that your kitten is in good health they will receive their first vaccination.

4 weeks free pet insurance. Petplan offer a ‘no strings’ 4 weeks free pet insurance cover note, the vet will be happy to give this to you if you choose to accept it.

What to expect on your second visit

You will need to book a second vaccination for your kitten 3 weeks after the first. This will be a 10 Minute Consultation with the nurse. Your kitten will be re weighed and checked before our qualified veterinary nurse administers their second vaccination. Our nurses will also be available to answer any new questions that you may have for them.
