KITTEN WELLNESS CARE DISCOUNT PACKAGES

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

15% Savings On Kittenhood 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 kitten.  Remember that a kitten ages approximately 14 human years in its first 4 months of life!

Feline Leukemia Testing is recommended for all kittens to ensure that they do not have this incurable, ultimately fatal virus.  Once tested, kittens can be protected with vaccinations.

Intestinal Parasite Testing (Fecal) ensures that your new kitten isn’t bringing home any parasites that can be dangerous to his own health, but contagious to humans 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.

     Feline Leukemia Virus  can remain latent in the body for up to 3 years before causing fatal illness. 

      Feline Upper Respiratory Viruses are highly contagious, often chronic infections of the upper respiratory tract that can recur throughout a cat’s lifetime.  Vaccinations help prevent infection or decrease severity of infection.

     Rabies is a fatal disease that can be transferred to humans.  In the Desert Southwest, cats are more frequently afflicted with Rabies than are dogs.  We believe that all cats, just like all dogs, should receive regular Rabies vaccinations.  Rabies vaccinations are required to get a dog license, which is required by law.

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 spraying, constant vocalization with persistent heat cycles, 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 their cat won’t get lost, stolen or hit by a car.  Yet, the Humane Societies are filled with lost cats.  Even “strictly indoor” cats 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 Kitten will result in many more healthy years, with fewer crises.  Let us help you get off to the right start with a discount!
