What to Expect:
When you come in for your appointment, you will be greeted by one of our friendly front desk associates. They will discuss
any paperwork with you, verify your information, offer you a bandanna sprayed with Feliway, and direct you to our feline only waiting area. You will then be called into our feline only exam room by a technician who will ask you some questions, get your cat's weight, and leave to get the doctor. Once the doctor is updated, they will come in to perform their exam, discuss the plan for the visit, and recommend any necessary diagnostics. If a diagnostic workup is warranted, an estimate will be offered to you. At the end of your appointment, any diagnostic results will be discussed with you, any recheck exams will be scheduled, and you will be given a written discharge that breaks down the findings of your appointment and any home care instructions following your visit.
Adult Vaccination Protocol:
We recommend vaccinating your indoor only cat for FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia) every year. If your cat is both an indoor and outdoor cat, we recommend vaccinating with our combo vaccination of FVRCP/FeLV. FeLV stands for feline leukemia. We also recommend both our indoor and outdoor cats be vaccinated with the Rabies 1year vaccination or Rabies 3 year vaccination. Your adult cat can receive a Rabies 3 year vaccination if they have been vaccinated with a Rabies 1 year vaccination before.
Kitten Vaccination Protocol:
We recommend that kittens start their vaccine series at 8 weeks of age. At this visit they will be weighed, examined, given a dewormer, and given their first FVRCP (upper respiratory infections) vaccine. You will be scheduled an appointment 3-4 weeks later for a booster vaccination. At this visit, it is recommended that you kitten be tested for FeLV (feline leukemia) & FIV (feline HIV). If your kitten is negative, we will go ahead and proceed with their next vaccine which will be a booster of their FVRCP and their first FeLV. They will then be scheduled for their final booster appointment in 3-4 weeks. At this visit they receive their final booster of FVRCP & FeLV, as well as, their Rabies vaccination. We recommend getting this spayed or neutered at this visit as well.
