Cat Health Section – Your New Kitten

Initial Check-up

When you acquire a kitten, one of the first things you should do is have her checked by a vet. This examination is possibly the most important one your kitten will ever have. You need to be sure that your new kitten is healthy and free from serious defects such as a cleft palate or heart abnormality. At Vetrica, this initial examination is free¹.

Safeguarding for Kitten’s Health

In this section you will find information about our Kitten Health Plan, which protects your kitten against the major infectious diseases and guarantees protection against fleas and worms. We also have a number of fact sheets with information about kitten health and welfare.

Kitten Health Plan

All cats should be protected from flea and worm infestations. These serious problems are the most common source of suffering in the cats seen at Vetrica. Cats should also be vaccinated against the serious infectious killer diseases.

At Vetrica we offer combined protection against all these diseases in one package, with a large discount and many additional services at markedly reduced rates. We call this the “Kitten Health Plan”, detailed as follows:

A HEALTH EXAMINATION and ROUTINE VACCINATIONS

for, cat flu, enteritis, and leukaemia (at 9 weeks old), with a second injection (three weeks later) administered by one of our vets.

COMPLETE FLEA PREVENTION

with two injections of Program (or Stronghold if you prefer), each of which provides 6 months protection against flea infestations.

ONE YEAR’S SUPPLY OF WORMER

, suitable for both round and tapeworm, (assuming three monthly dosing). We’ll even administer the tablets for you if you have difficulty.

A 6 MONTH HEALTH CHECK

by a veterinay nurse, at which stage the second Program injection will be administered.
