Caring for Kittens does not include only naming them, playing with them or just feeding them whatever you like, but it includes taking care of their health, taking care of their medical needs based on their age, finding a proper place for the kittens to stay and more. To carry out all this you need to have proper knowledge of the kittens. There are certain immunizations that need to be given to kittens. When the kitten in 9 to 12 weeks old kittens lose the self immunization that they got when they were born and starts developing their own immunity.
First and fore most injection that need to be given to the kitten is the distemper shot which is a combination of vaccines and protest the kitten from various diseases.
Caliciviral disease is one such viral disease which affects the kitten’s respiratory systems. Feline viral rhinotracheitis is also similar disease.
