KITTEN DISCOUNT PACKAGES- Save Money, Get off to a Healthy, Sound Start!

A Comprehensive Health Care Plan is critical for your Kitten’s fragile, formative months !

15% Savings On Kitten Vaccinations, Exams, Laboratory Tests, Microchipping, Spay/ Neuter Surgery (If done before 6 months of age)

Physical Examinations at regular intervals, are important to detect disease early in the rapidly growing, maturing Puppy.  Remember that a kitten  ages approximately 14 human years in its first 4 months of life!

Intestinal Parasite Testing (Fecal) ensures that your new kitten isn’t bringing home any parasites that can be dangerous to his own health, the health of other pets in the family or contagious to humans!

Feline Leukemia Testing- Is very important for all new kittens (and cats) to a family.  Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunosuppressive Virus are two of the most devastating viral diseases of cats.  They are both incurable and ultimately fatal infections that are contagious to other cats (in the household or in the neighborhood if infected cats go outside).  Diligent testing and subsequent responsible management of infected cats over the years have signficantly reduced the number of animals infected with this disease.  Knowing whether your new kitten potentially has either of these diseases has a huge bearing on how that kitty’s health is managed throughout her life as well!

Vaccinations are vital to protect a kitten against the worst contagious diseases of kittenhood.  Comprehensive kitten vaccinations provide a good base of immunity upon which immunity is built for the remainder of life. Kittens need vaccinations every 3-4 weeks from 6-8 weeks of age (depending on whether mama cat was vaccinated) through 15 weeks of age for a full first year of protection.

    Rhinotracheitis/ Calicivirus/ Distemper are highly contagoius, sometimes fatal, serious diseases of Kittens.  Vaccination and keeping your kitten Out Of Public Places Until Fully Vaccinated are the safest ways to protect him from these devastating diseases.

    Feline Leukemia vaccination will help protect your new kitten from this disastrous disease.  Even if you have no intention of letting yuor new baby cat outside, leukemia vaccinating is a good idea.  Most cats eventually sneak outside.  And it only takes a simple “hiss and spit” fight with an infected cat (even through a screen!) to give your furry kitty a fatal disease!

     Rabies is a fatal disease that can be transferred to humans.  Several cases of feline rabies are detected in Arizona every year.   Even inside cats can be exposed when rabid bats fly into a home or  the cat sneaks outside and plays with a downed bat or gets into a fight with other wildlife.  Wouldn’t you rather feel safe than worry whether your pet could carry a disease easily transmitted and fatal to your human family and friends?

Spaying and Neutering  Prevents unwanted pregnancies leading to unwanted ethanized pets.  It also helps to protect your pet against certain cancers and infections as well as undesirable behaviors such as urine marking, some dominance aggression (not always and more successful if done before the behavior pattern has been established) and roaming in search of a mate (and crossing streets and getting hit by cars…).   Receive a 15% discount off the price of your kitten’s spay or neuter surgery (including all anesthesia, pre-anesthetic lab testing, IV fluids, and monitoring) if the surgery is done before your kitten is 6 months old!

Microchipping for Permanent Identification will help you get your cat  back home if he or she gets lost.  Everyone thinks that his cat won’t get outside, get lost, stolen or hit by a car.  Yet, the Humane Societies are filled with lost cats.  Even “the best trained or most timidcats can sneak out the door, get out a door unwittingly left open by children or guests, or get confused during a move.    If your kitten has a microchip implanted under its skin ( a minor procedure done during an office visit), its chances of being reunited with you are greatly improved!

  Establishing a solid base for Wellness and Preventive Care for your new Kitteny will result in many more healthy years, with fewer crises.  Let us help you get off to the right start with a discount!
