veterinary care for kittens

The first weeks of a kitten's life are a critical period, and the treatment they receive can mean life or death. Orphan kittens are an especially vulnerable population due to their compromised immune systems, inability to self-regulate, and intensive needs. The following pages are intended to give you an overview of routine and emergency support for kittens' unique medical needs. Please remember that there is no substitute for an in-person visit with a veterinarian, so please seek help from a professional as needed.
