1st vaccination from 9 weeks Old
2nd Vaccination 3-4 weeks after 1st vaccination
Keep cats in for at least one week after the
It is most important that all cats are given a yearly booster for continued protection against disease.
We vaccinate cats against the following: Feline Enteritis, Cat Flu, Feline Leukaemia and Feline Chlamydia
Because pets age seven years for every one of humans, having a physical examination every six months for a pet is like a human having an exam every three and a half years. Pets are unable to tell us how they feel, so they are on a faster path toward illness than humans. Many pets mask their illness from us, so only an experienced vet can perform a proper exam to determine the state of wellness.
A small, rice-grain size microchip is implanted under the skin giving permanent, irrefutable proof of identity. If your cat goes missing, scanners held by animal welfare organisations (e.g. RSPCA, Cats Protection), veterinary practices etc will identify your cat’s unique microchip number and help re-unite you and your pet.
This is the removal of your pet’s reproductive glands to stop it from breeding. We recommend neutering for all pets not explicitly used for breeding purposes. Neutered pets have fewer diseases, fight less, have cancer less, and live longer. Neutering DOES NOT alter the personality of your pet!
Neutering in males is called castration and in females, spaying. The common time for neutering in males and females is between 6 and 12 months of age.
Regular de-worming is necessary for the health of your pet and to protect the family from particular worms called toxocara.
Kittens should be wormed every month until 6 months old. Adults (older than 6 months) should be wormed every 3 months. However, if your pet is a hunter, roams, or is fed raw meat, more frequent worming, in accordance with the worm life cycle, may be necessary. Please discuss this with us .
NOTE: Evidence of intestinal parasites may not necessarily be visible to the naked eye.
Milbemax tablets for cats treat all types of worms. These tablets can be mixed with food or swallowed whole.
Flea Treatment and control
Most, if not all animals, will encounter fleas at some time in their life. Signs of infestation include:
• Presence of actual fleas
• Bites on the skin which look like small pimples
• Black, gritty material on the coat (flea dirt/faeces)
• Allergic skin reactions (dermatitis)
Flea control is possible only if both the pet and its environment are treated.
Stronghold treats both the pet and the environment by breaking the flea life cycle, preventing them from breeding in the home. A single dose is applied behind the neck every 4 weeks.
It is best applied last thing at night. Separate from other pets who might lick the product off. No cuddles for at least 8-10 hours after applying a spot-on
Do not apply within 2 days of the vaccination. This allows us to identify the cause of adverse reactions when they occur. If you kitten is vaccinated, dewormed and “deflea-ed” all on the same day and the kitten then becomes unwell, it can be difficult to determine the likely cause.
