Between the ages of six and eight weeks, you will start two series of two vaccinations, given three to four weeks apart, to protect them against the following: Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukpenia, Chlamydia psittaci, and Feline Leukemia virus.
At the first visit, we will also test your cat’s blood for the Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline0
Immunodeficiency (FIV) viruses. These viruses can be fatal and are easily transmitted between cats. Your kitten will receive a full physical exam with each visit. At this time we will also examine a fecal (stool) sample to check for any intestinal parasites such as roundworm, hookworm, whipworm, and coccidia. Your cat will be treated with the appropriate dewormer as needed.
At the age of six months, we recommend that your kitten be neutered (ovariohysterectomy or castration) if you are not planning on breeding the cat.
One year after the last kitten vaccination, you will need to bring your cat in for an annual adult vaccination. We will send you a post card reminder. We also recommend having a wellness exam and a fecal preformed twice a year.
In order to maintain a Veterinarian Client Patient Relationship, we will need to see your pet once a year. By doing so, we can continue to dispense prescription medications if your dog is on them, or prescription food.
