    Hi everyone, first time cat mummy to two 3 month old girls and in need of some advice please.
    I’ve just taken them in to the vets for their first vaccinations but I don’t know where on the kittens it was done.
    Due to Covid, the kittens were taken from me in the car park and brought back a short time later. The only problem is I forgot to ask where the injections were given.
    please could someone let me know for my own information and so that I can keep an eye out for tenderness/licking etc.

    Thanking you.

    Vaccinations are given into the loose skin on the area of the back of the neck, between the base of the skull and the shoulder blades...or into a hind leg.

    If you call the vet they'll be happy to tell you.

    Thanks! I would but it’s quite difficult to get through, I get put through to a switchboard to whom which I need to justify my reasons for calling before being put through and waiting in a queue. I can understand that they’re busy with these strange times.

    That must be irritating! My own vets, like many, are extra busy but the only delay on the phone is the extra Covid related recorded info.

    I'm positive your kittens will be fine. I have had so many kittens vaccinated and cannot remember even one being bothered by the vaccination site
