Caring for your new kitten.
*Packages are only provided for the first 6 months from the starting date and do expire*
*These prices do not include spaying, neutering, or microchipping*
1. Exam – During the physical examination, the doctor will listen to the heart and lungs and check the skin, eyes, ears, teeth, and temperature. They will also look for any signs of birth defects. A yearly exam is vital for the optimum health of your pet.
*Includes only the first initial kitten exam.
2. Fecal Test – We will have one fecal sample sent to our lab to be examined under a microscope to check for parasites. This is a very important procedure because not only is it detrimental to your pet’s health, but certain parasites may be transmitted to humans.
3. FeLV/FIV (Leukemia/AIDS) Test – Every new cat should be tested for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency viruses. They are both common diseases among cats (especially strays or outdoor cats). Kittens can be born with these diseases, or acquire them early in life. They can be spread through saliva and can also be sexually transmitted. Kittens should be tested on their first visit to the vet. Adults, strays, outdoor cats, or any other cat at risk should also be tested.
*Includes only first initial testing.
4. FVRCP Vaccine – This is a combination vaccine that aids in the prevention of 4 different diseases. Three of these (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Chlamydia) cause respiratory diseases. The fourth (Panleukopenia) is a fatal disease showing flu-like symptoms. Kittens should have a series of FVRCP vaccines until at least 16 weeks old. Adult cats also require regular boosters.
*All boosters leading up to the final FVRCP 1-year vaccine are included. This may not include boosters if the series is interrupted.
5. FeLV Vaccine – This vaccine aids in the prevention of feline leukemia. Leukemia is a highly contagious virus that debilitates the immune system and causes life-long infections. There is no known cure for this virus. Kittens should have a series of two (2) FeLV vaccines. Adult cats also require regular boosters.
*All boosters leading up to the final FeLV 1-year vaccine are included. This may not include boosters if the series is interrupted.
6. Rabies Vaccine – The first 1-year rabies vaccine is given between 4 and 6 months of age. Rabies is a fatal disease that can be transmitted to humans. By law, it must be given by a licensed veterinarian or technician.
7. Deworm – Up to two treatments of a dewormer called Strongid are given to assure that all intestinal parasites are gone. This may require multiple treatments.
8. Flea Treatment – The first dose of flea preventative is given to kill adult fleas, eggs, and larvae for up to one month (30 days).
