Kitten Vaccinations

At Riverview Animal Hospital, our kitten vaccine program begins when your kitten is 8-weeks-old. At that time they will come in for a complete physical exam, along with their first series of vaccines. We will continue with your kitten’s journey by doing additional vaccines and health exams at 12 weeks of age and 16 weeks of age. Then your kitten is up to date for 1 year. The information that you will receive from our team during your kitten’s visits will ensure you and your kitten have an excellent start to a wonderful healthy life together.

When do kittens get their first shots?

Our kitten vaccine program begins at 8-weeks-old, and continues at 12 weeks with the final kitten vaccine visit at 16-weeks-old.

Does my kitten need only core vaccines?

Vaccines are the safest way to prevent disease. Although just like everything we do in life, there is always a small risk, however, our veterinarians feel that the rewards definitely outweigh the risks of the diseases that they prevent.
