Kittens do a lot of growing in their first year, up to 40 times their size in fact, that’s why it’s so important to give them the best healthy start. The right nutrition, preventative healthcare, environment, playmates and experiences will all affect how your kitten develops. Register your new kitten with us and receive a FREE Health Check and weigh-in with a Vet and our FREE Kitten Starter Pack at your first appointment.
Kittens are growing fast and taking lots of nutrients from their mother’s milk and learning the basics of ‘how to be a cat’ from their mother and siblings. By week 2, their eyes are beginning to open, and by the end of week 4 their sense of smell is fully mature.
Kittens are weaned off their mother’s milk and are becoming very adventurous. By week 5, their sight is fully developed.
Kittens should have had 2 rounds of vaccinations by the time they are 12 weeks old. Whenever you bring your kitten in for a vaccination with one of our vets they will receive a full health check. Now is a good time to get your kitten microchipped.
At around 4 months old, your kitten’s adult teeth will begin to develop and they will start to lose their baby teeth. You must keep up with the recommended level of flea and worm protection, ask our team for more information.
It’s time to think about neutering your kitten. Talk to a member of our team or read about the many benefits of neutering.
When you pick up your new kitten and bring it home, we would recommend you register them with a vet practice and that they have a full health check to ensure that they are growing and developing nicely. You should at this point book your kitten in for their vaccinations and flea and worming treatments if they haven’t had them already
It’s a good idea to insure your kitten to help you cover any vet fees if they become ill or injured. Pet insurance will help ensure that if your kitten becomes ill or injured then you can afford the best treatment available not the best treatment you can afford at the time.* More Info >
Preparing your home for your new kitten’s arrival is very important. Remove any dangers such as hazardous plants or objects, remember cats can climb pretty high. Block up any holes or gaps that your kitten could squeeze into such as behind cupboards and appliances. Make sure you have adequate litter trays (1 per cat), food and water bowls, kitten food, toys, a bed and safe places where your kitten can hide and feel secure. Request our free booklet for guidance on essential things your kitten will need.
Your kitten should not be allowed outside until a week after their final kitten vaccine to ensure they have adequate immunity. We would also recommend neutering your cat before allowing them outside as un-neutered cats are more likely to roam and wander. Before any trips outside it is worth considering how you will give your cat or kitten access outdoors in the long-term. Install any cat flaps etc that you would like your cat to use. Make sure your garden is safe for your kitten – cover any ponds, fill in any holes, remove any hazardous substances.
Start by letting your kitten have supervised access to your garden to let them get used to being outside. Your kitten should always have access to go back inside if they feel unsure of the new outdoors environment. Once your kitten is happy with going outside you can slowly build up the amount of time that you allow them outside unsupervised.
During yours kitten’s first few months, they should be getting used to people, other pets in the home, sounds and experiences to help socialise them. Try not to overwhelm them when they first arrive and encourage gentle contact from any children.
Fill in our form and we’ll send you our FREE kitten advice booklet, featuring a list of essential things your new kitten needs such as the best type of bedding, litter trays, nutrition and more.

We are new to the area and when I called Clent Hills Vets to discuss the care of my pets, well I can’t speak highly enough – very helpful Thank you!!!Janet H, Best of Bromsgrove
Harry my pup, had to go in for out of hours emergency care and a 48 hour stay after eating a whole fruit cake! The staff were all so lovely and helpful. They treated him immediately and looked after him brilliantly during his stay. They gave us regular updates and were always on the end of the phone line! That meant a lot… Thanks to everyone there for their hard work and love for all the animals they treat xxLouise Robson, Facebook
Fantastic, helpful and very friendly, they looked after our puppy brilliantly.Denise Gauder, Google
Very professional, caring and considerate staff. Rod was brilliant, spent a lot of time explaining my dog Baxter’s issues and I will recommend this practice to all.Noel Wheatley, Facebook
I had to take my cat for his annual booster on 28/12/2016, I was approached by Barbara who asked if it was OK for her to treat my cat. I was so shocked that she should even think that it would be a problem and it was all because I had lost my Jess to cancer earlier in the year and it was Barbara that had performed the operation, found it, and had to give me the bad news. Jess was relieved of her pain on April 9th 2016 and I have nothing but praise for the whole team at Clent Hills, especially Barbara, who I am glad to say can look after my cat any time she wants.
Thank you Clent Hills Bromsgrove, thank you so much and I wish you all a very Happy New Year.Kenneth Anthony Jones, Facebook
I would definitely recommend you without a doubt, the care we receive is excellent. I’m able to just drop in and get over-the- counter general advice when I need it, and nothing seems too much trouble here. Plus, my dogs have always loved coming to this Vets!Beverley Stanton, Blog
