Cat Preventive Care

Cats really do not have 9 lives but this is what you can do to enhance and help extend the one they do have!

Starting when a kitten is 6 weeks of age, or when you first get your kitty:

  • Test for Feline Leukemia and Immunodeficiency viruses. A simple in-house blood test.
  • Test for intestinal parasites, which are easily identified by microscope then treated.
  • Vaccination to prevent common and avoidable diseases including Rabies, Feline Upper Respiratory Diseases and Feline Leukemia.
  • Spaying or neutering at a young age prevents unwanted kittens, of course, plus reproductive tract infections and cancers.

As your kitty ages:

  • Periodic vaccinations
  • Strategic deworming
  • Prevention and/or treatment of fleas, ticks and ear mites
  • Wellness blood tests can help detect diseases early at their most treatable stage
