Hi, I'm a new owner of a 7 week old kitten. Never had a cat before in my life. SO my question is: At what age do you take your kitten for his deworming and shots? And also what shot are very neccessary and which not?
Kittens should start a series of distemper shots and have their first worming at 8 weeks. Most vets give that as a series of 3 so they go back at 12 weeks for another booster and worming, then at 16 weeks for the last distemper and a rabies shot that lasts a year. If it's an indoor cat, that should do it for the first year besides neutering/spaying which is around 5 months. If the cat goes outside, I would ask about FIV and FELV vaccines as well.
