When you’re ready to go to the veterinary office, talk to the staff to make sure they are prepared to help you make your kitten’s first visit a good one. Veterinarians and veterinary technicians are also skilled at handling your kitten in ways that are comforting and supportive — or they should be. The staff at your vet's office will be happy to help comfort your kitten — for example, when I see cats and kittens, I wear those pheromones like aftershave, in order to help keep my patients calm and happy during the exam.
By preparing your kitten in advance and working with your veterinary hospital, you should be able to set your kitten up for a life of good health, with easier trips to the veterinarian on a regular basis.
