Q. If the kitten is eating,drinking and voiding ,and i'm wiping the face with a clean wet cloth do I still need to take her to the vet?

A. Regular vet checkups for kittens are still important even if they appear healthy or only minorly sick. Vet checkups can help you make sure your kitten is growing normally, and can get you all caught up on vaccinations and care. If kitten currently has an upper respiratory infection but is doing OK, then monitoring her is best. However if she does not improve or if her symptoms worsen then a a vet appointment sooner than her next scheduled checkup is best.
