Cats

Insurance :

Taking out insurance for your pet is recommended. There is a large choice of companies offering pet insurance. Check the small print so you get the correct one for you.

Vaccination :

This protects your cat against Feline panleucopenia, Herpesvirus (H), Calicivirus, Chlamydiosis and Leukaemia.

Two initial injections are required, at 9 and 12 weeks, then a booster injection annually.

Worming :

Cats should be wormed every two weeks after birth up to 12 weeks, then once monthly until they are 6 months of age, then every 3 months.

Flea Treatment :

Kittens can be treated for fleas by the Vet from 3 days of age. From 8 weeks of age cats can be treated with spot on treatment. 

For the home environment a suitable household flea spray should be used.

Ask our staff for the best products for your pet and home.

Microchipping :

Microchipping is done by a simple insertion of a grain of rice size chip under the skin with a unique identifying number which stays with the animal for life. Usually this is carried out at second vaccination before the cat goes outside but can also be done on adult cats.

Diet :

A healthy balanced diet is essential for the wellbeing of your cat. We recommend and sell the Virbac Veterinary range which is tailored to the needs of your cat depending on age, size and breed.

Dental Care :

Cat’s teeth should be cleaned regularly to prevent a build up of tartar. Failure to do this can result in dental disease. Brush your cat’s teeth at least twice weekly using veterinary toothpaste and a soft brush.

Aquadent can also be added to drinking water to reduce tartar and plaque.

RCW Feline Dental food can help maintain clean teeth.

Grooming :

It is important to brush your cat; they moult all their hair in Spring and Autumn so brushing will help remove loose hair. Failure to do this can result in skin disease and localised hair loss.

Neutering :

Males and females can be neutered from 5 months of age.

Breeding :

It is advisable to breed from 1 year of age or older. We advise neutering after breeding is finished.
