New Kittens

We are here to make sure your kitten has a healthy start to life

We understand how exciting it is to get a new kitten but also how much there is to think about. We are here to make sure your kitten has a healthy start to life and to help you give the best care it needs in these important first few months.

  • Cat Chat
  • Vaccinations and Health Checks:
  • 1 on 1 chat with the nurse and Kitten Packs
  • Worms and Flea Treatment
  • Life Time Care Club

Cat Chat

‘Cat Chat’ is an informal evening where we do exactly what it says on the tin – we have a talk about our feline friends! We discuss what normal cat behaviour is and how you can make small changes in your home environment to make sure you and your new kitten get the best start in life. We will take a look at common medical issues and how we can help you ensure your cat stays healthy throughout their whole life.

  • When: Every few months, ask at your nearest Westmorland Vets surgery for the date of the next one
  • Where: Westmorland Vets, Riverside Business Park, Natland Road, Kendal
  • Time: Evening, lasts approx. 2 hours

Vaccinations and Health Checks:

There are a number of contagious diseases such as

  • Feline Herpesvirus
  • Feline Calicivirus
  • Feline Infectious Enteritis
  • Feline Leukemia Virus

These can cause severe illness or in many cases can be fatal.

Many of the diseases are preventable by vaccination. Having a full health check at the time of the vaccinations means you can be confident your kitten is happy and healthy.

 

1 on 1 chat with the nurse and Kitten Packs

When you first come to the practice, one of our nurses will have a 1 on 1 chat to make sure your kitten is settling in well at home and they will go through our ‘Kitten Packs’ to make sure you are happy with the care your kitten needs.

It’s a good chance to ask questions regarding food, behaviour and insurance.

Worms and Flea Treatment

It is very important that your kitten gets wormed from a young age as a large worm burden can result in poor and stunted growth.

We will give you a free Advocate Spot on treatment to get rid of fleas and roundworms as well as a lot of other nasty mites. Depending on your kitten's needs and lifestyle, other treatment may be required prior to the free sample.

 

 

Life Time Care Club

Our Life Time Care Club covers what insurance companies won’t. If you join today, we can offer you and your kitten a huge range of discounts, including a FREE 2nd vaccination.
