Kitten Vaccinations

Congratulations – if you have a new kitten!

You’ve anticipated the new arrival by ‘kitten-proofing’ your home and had lots of fun choosing the carrier, bed, blanket, toys and other supplies he will need. This adorable little bundle of fluff is sure to bring you much joy. In return, you can make a major contribution to your pet’s longevity, happiness and quality of life by providing him with good nutrition, loving attention in a safe, sanitary environment and regular checkups at your veterinarian.

At Acadia Veterinary Hospital, we believe the best (and in many cases, the most important) medicine is prevention! That is why it is our goal to help you get your kitten’s health off to the right start. Due to underdeveloped immune systems, kittens are at the greatest risk of contracting a serious and sometimes deadly disease. We want your kitten to have a long and healthy life, and building a healthy immunity is an integral part of this.

When do kittens get their first shots?


Kittens receive their first vaccination at 8 weeks of age.

How often do my kittens need vaccines?


Kittens need 3 sets of vaccinations to get off to a good start. They are generally performed at 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?


In addition to the core vaccines of rabies and FVRCP, your veterinarian may recommend other vaccinations based on your kitten’s lifestyle, such as FeLV (feline leukemia).

Are there any risks associated with vaccines?


Any risks associated with vaccinations will be discussed with you by your veterinarian, though generally, the benefits of vaccines outweigh any potential risks.

Chers clients,

Nous sommes tous conscients de la situation que nous avons vécue dans les derniers mois avec l'arrivée du Covid -19.

Dans les jours à suivre nous communiquerons avec nos clients qui ont des rendez-vous & chirurgies prévues afin de les re-planifier à l'Hôpital Moncton Animal Hospital avec Dr. Boutet.

Nous vous remercions à l’avance pour votre patience et votre collaboration pendant cette période hors de l’ordinaire. Nous souhaitons que vous, votre famille et vos animaux soyez sains et saufs.
