Kitten Wellness

Having a new kitten is always very exciting and challenging at the same time. It is very important to provide the best start in a new kitten’s life. Remember, the first year of a cat’s life is equivalent to 10 years in a human’s life. The second year is equivalent to 5 human years.

At Loyalist veterinary Hospital we are always excited to see new kittens. During the first year of your kitten’s life, we will have many opportunities to see your pet and make sure it’s growing well.
