You can bundle-in a great variety of goods and services during your purchase and save even more. Lastly each plan allows you to recieve special prices throughout the year. See below for some of the details we can offer in Your Cat's Health Care Plan
Your KITTEN's Health Care Plan
Unlimited Medical Examinations: These are the most important parts of a health care plan. Each physical exam allows the doctor to detect many potential health concerns at an early stage. ** this program does not apply to emergency exams at the Metro Animal Emergency Clinic.
12 Month Visit: This is an important vist where we go over - nutrition; weight management; parasite control; training- daycare; dental care; food and toys; desentization; and any itchiness issues.
3 Nail Trims: A great way to socialize your kitten - to have their nails trimmed. (Sedation is not included if required.)
2 FVRCP Vaccines: This protects your kitten against many upper respiratory diseases including symptoms like runny eyes and nose, sneezing, and coughing. These viruses are highly contagious and even indoor cats are at risk because they're airborne and can be transported on your clothing or skin.
Rabies Vaccine: This protects your kitten from a serious life threating disease affecting the brain and nervous system causing changes to behavior ranging from severe depression to extreme aggression. It is the bat strain we see in Nova Scotia, so even indoor cats are at risk. Protecting your kitten helps to protect your houshold since this disease is transmittable to people.
Fecal Exam: This test is used to identify the presence of intestinal parasites including "worms" and microscopic parasites in your kitten's stool. These worms are commonly found in the environment and can be transmitted to people, posing a health risk to your family.
Feline Leukemia and FIV Test: This test checks for 2 immune deficiency diseases that can be transmitted from the mom to her kittens through the placenta or from a cat bite. Although cats can live a long time with these diseases, they will be prone to reoccurring infections and can eventually develop certain forms of cancer.
Young Pet Blood Profile: This test is often performed just before your kitten undergoes surgery. A blood profile checks the kidneys and liver function to make sure they can clear anesthetic medications from their system. It provides a basic "internal exam" to make sure things are working well on the inside or if alternative anesthetics are required. It also provides us with a baseline for your kitten at this stage in their life.
First Flea and 2 Dewormer Treatments: Throughout a kitten's first year, they may require a complete dewormer which will treat round and tapeworms. This gives your kitten its first treatment and more may be needed if: 1) your kitten goes outside where they can pick up roundworm eggs from the soil; 2) have or have had fleas; or 3) if they are hunting (mice carry tapeworm eggs).
