[Music]>>DR WEBB: Hi, I’m Dr. Webb, a veterinarian
at Banfield Pet Hospital. As your partner in pet care, it’s our goal
to help you keep your pet healthy and happy. Here are some helpful tips for adjusting to
life with your kitten.>>NARRATOR: First, you’ll want to make sure
that your pet’s environment is safe, and taking a look at things from a kitten’s perspective
can help. Electrical wires, cords for the window blinds,
stairs, chemicals like antifreeze, and standing water such as swimming pools or the toilet
bowl can mean trouble. It’s a good idea to keep small items and objects
with removable pieces, plus liquids, medications and plants – even
rubber bands and string, out of reach. These can all create a choking hazard and
even serious intestinal blockages. Providing lots of pet toys is a safe way to
help satisfy their need to play or chew. Speaking of chewing, dental care is essential
throughout your cat’s life, and it’s never too early to establish good
dental habits. Since tooth-brushing can be challenging, dental
treats can help prevent dental disease. When your kitten’s older, regular dental exams
and cleanings as prescribed will be an important step in preventive care. Start your kitten off on the right paw by
providing an easily accessible litter box. Place the box in a quiet area, near where
your kitten sleeps, but away from dogs, kids or other cats. It’s best to keep potted plants with soil
out of your kitten’s reach until they’re completely litter-box-trained. Providing your kitten a cat carrier to explore
or sleep in is a great way to get them used to it. Carriers can help take the anxiety out of
trips in the car to the vet, groomer or boarding facility. Thanks for listening. Remember, you know your pet best. And we know how to help you keep them healthy. For more information on this, and other health
