When Does Kitten Umbilical Cord Fall Off?

Umbilical cord should fall off around 4 days to 5 weeks after birth; it is normal for the umbilical cord to bleed a bit until then. However, if your kitten appears uncomfortable, she may have an umbilical hernia that needs examined by a veterinarian. If you are concerned about umbilical bleeding or discomfort in your kitten, contact our clinic immediately!
