We break our plans into payments so that our clients can easily afford everything they need for their new pet. Because multiple exams are included in the kitten plan, the "free new client" exam is not advisable. Of course, you can come in for the free exam and begin the kitten plan later, but keep in mind that a plan needs to be started at 8 weeks old!
This plan is designed for kittens from 8-12 weeks old with NO vaccine history. Unless the kitten was purchased with a Health Certificate, it should be tested for FIV/FELV (Aids and Leukemia). This test is included with our kitten plan. Aids is an immune deficiency illness and is rampant in Polk County. There is no treatment or cure and if positive, the Veterinarian will discuss the options you have for your pet.
IF you do not complete the kitten plan, you will be charged for services rendered at REGULAR prices, not at the discounted "package price" rate and this will be charged to your account. You must leave a credit card & authorization on file giving permission to charge your account for these charges. The appointments for boosters need to be at least 3 weeks and no longer than 4 weeks apart. Exams at each visit familiarizes your kitten with exam procedures early in his/her life. This early imprinting helps your pet become "fear free" when visiting the clinic. We have a Certified "Fear Free" handler on staff to help with early kitten Veterinary training. Trimming sharp kitty nails is essential when they are young so they will not fight it later!
PLEASE spay/neuter your pet! Keep in mind that a female is capable of having kittens at 6 months of age. Often, many of these kittens die because the Mom is too young! If you wish to combine a spay/neuter with your kitten plan, we will accept pre-surgical payments to your account. We prefer to spay/neuter cats after they have reached at least 5 months of age. This is generally before the females come in to heat or the males begin to "mark" everything or become aggressive. This can be discussed at one of your plan visits and we will give you a rough estimate of the total spay/neuter costs.
Total cost of plan: $195.00 is the full cost of the kitten plan. (less with a health certificate).
Payments: Two payments $97.50-$ 97.50 are spaced 3 weeks to a month apart and it includes the following:
- 2) Full Exams by the Veterinarian
- 1) Mini Exam by the Veterinarian
- FIV/FELV Test
- 2) Fecal Checks
- 2) Dewormings
- 3) FVRCP Vaccines
- 2) Leukemia Vaccines
- 1) Rabies Vaccine
- 1) Revolution for fleas, lice, intestinal worms and prevention of Heartworms
This is the most economical way to get all vaccines, exams, testing that are needed for the first year unless your pet gets ill. The exam also allows you to purchase certain products that are not "over-the-counter", such as Revolution, the best flea, heartworm prevention and intestinal wormer on the market for cats. It also treats and prevents lice! A single flea can produce 50 (FIFTY!!) eggs a day and it takes 3 months to break the flea cycle! Stay ahead of the curve and prevent an infestation!
We can include a spay or neuter payment plan with a kitten plan, so that by the time the kitty is old enough to spay/neuter, it can all be paid for. If something happens that you just CAN not make the payment, DON'T worry! We can extend spay/neuter payments until it is paid prior to scheduling the surgery appointment.
TO MAKE PAYMENTS ON A SPAY OR NEUTER WITH YOUR KITTEN PLAN;
The Vet will give you an estimate during your kitten plan. You can take that estimate and divide the spay/neuter cost and pay for it monthly so you can have it completely paid for by the time the kitty is old enough for a spay/neuter. We prefer a minimum of 4 # and/or at least 5 months old.
The estimate will include all the following:
- Pre-anesthetic bloodwork * (see below)
- Pre-surgical exam
- Spay (or neuter)
- IV Catheter, required (for safety)
- Fluids (if Vet requires, dependent upon patient)
- Injectable pain meds & antibiotic
- Take Home pain medication
- Elizabethan collar
*Pre-anesthetic bloodwork is a choice, but is highly recommended for the safety of your pet. Bloodwork tells us if the kitten is healthy enough for surgery. It tests the liver and kidneys, which filter anesthesia. Included in the Pre-anesthetic bloodwork is:
Complete Blood Count (CBC): A CBC is the measure of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. This test helps us identify problems, such as infection, anemia, low platelet count and bone marrow disease.
Chemistry panel: The minor chemistry panel provides information of kidney and liver values, protein levels, and blood sugar.
These prices are valid as of 8/1/2020 and may be amended at any time.
Add a life time registered microchip on your last visit and you will get a $10.00 discount! (Regularly $40.00 for $30.00)
(Once you begin a plan, the price will not change).
