a new kitten can be very exciting. Before bringing the furry
bundle home, remember they require a lot of care and
preventative measures (vaccinations, de-worming and a
healthy diet). This provides them with the best chance for a
healthy lifestyle. CVS continually evaluates the nutritional
quality of cat food and highly recommends 'Acana' or
'Natural Balance', which may be purchased at our clinic. We
recommend starting your kitten on a preventative health care
plan which is the foundation for a long, healthy life.
