The Medical Examination
The staff and veterinarian will ask you questions about your kitten’s past and conduct a physical check. Your kitten will be weighed, and a blood test may be required to rule out certain disorders. They’ll also look for fleas or mites, among other parasites.
Your kitten’s eyes, ears, lips, skin, coat, and entire body will be examined by the veterinarian. This includes palpating the abdomen to feel the organs and using a stethoscope to listen to the heart and lungs.
In addition, a stool sample may be taken to check for intestinal parasites. If at all feasible, bring a fecal sample with you to your appointment.
For optimal health, nursing time, and socialization, kittens should be adopted out at the age of 8 to 10 weeks (or even older). If your kitten is young, especially if it is less than 6 weeks old, the doctor will need to examine its nutritional and hydration condition and provide any necessary supplementation.
