Cat Health Section – Safeguarding for Cat’s Health

In this section you will find information about our Cat Health Plan, which protects your cat against the major infectious diseases and guarantees protection against fleas and worms. We also have an ever increasing library of information about cat health and welfare with detailed discussion about a number of different diseases and conditions.


Note: For information about Kittens, see here.


Cat 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 “at Health Plan”, detailed as follows:


A HEALTH EXAMINATION and ROUTINE BOOSTER VACCINATIONS for, cat flu, enteritis, leukaemia and chlamydia administered by one of our vets.


COMPLETE FLEA PREVENTION with 2 injections of Program (or Stronghold if you prefer), each of which provides 6 months protection against flea infestations.


ONE YEAR’S SUPPLY OF MONTHLY 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 veterinary nurse, at which stage the second Program injection will be administered.



We guarantee your cat will not have fleas (after 6 months of correct use), or we fix it free†.


We will send you a reminder for the 6 month check up.


As a member of the Cat Health Plan, you are also entitled to the following valuable discounts, valid for a full year:


  • Less than half price microchip. Permanent microchip identification for only £11.50.
  • 10% off all waiting room sales*. This includes collars, toys and treats as well as Hill’s Science Plan and our own brand high quality hypoallergenic cat and kitten foods.

This plan would cost over £250 if taken as individual items. If you enrol for the “Cat Health Plan” we are able to offer you an excellent discount and an option to spread your payments.**

  2. Spread the cost over six months: an initial payment of £33.32 (by cash/cheque/card), followed by five payments of £33.32 by monthly Direct Debit.

Note *: Cats weighing over 7.5kg may require more than one Program injection, or two packs of Stronghold which is charged extra. Please ask for further details if you think this may affect your kitten.


Note 2 *: All dogs and cats in the household must also be treated with products supplied by Vetrica, at the recommended interval, for the flea free guarantee.
