Kitten Vaccinations

Appointment Estimate - First Year

This package is recommended for kittens with NO vaccination history. We have other custom packages available by doctor approval.

Kitten Comprehensive Physical Exam/Consultation: $55.00/visit x 1 visit

Kitten Comprehensive Physical Exam/Consultation: $35.00/visit x 2 visits

This is given with all vaccinations, without exception, to ensure that your kitten's immune system is in optimal condition to process the vaccine. Your pet will be weighed, and Dr. Backus will give it a complete "head to toe" physical exam. We also discuss kitten behaviors and pertinent family issues concerning children or other pets in the home.

FVRCP Vaccination: $20.00/vaccination x 3 vaccinations

This vaccine protects against Feline Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia. This vaccination is given at 8 weeks, 12-14 weeks, and 16-20 weeks. This is considered a core vaccine and we use all killed viral products made by Merial.

Rabies Vaccination: $23.00/vaccination x 1 vaccination

This vaccination is given at 16 weeks of age. We use the Merial Purevax non-adjuvant, no-preservative vaccine, which is the safest feline rabies vaccine on the market today. This vaccine is yearly as the safety of the product causes the long term immunity to be slightly less.

FeLV Vaccination: $26.00/vaccination x 2 vaccinations

This vaccination protects against Feline Leukemia Virus. This virus can dramatically affect your kitten's lifespan and ability to recover from even mild illness. It is given at 12 weeks and 16 weeks.

If you have any questions about any of the above viruses, please ask us for more details.

Note: Please Read

Feline FIV/FeLV Test: $81.50

All kittens born to a mother cat that has not been vaccinated for Feline Leukemia should be tested before receiving the vaccination, especially if the kitten is going to be introduced into a home with other cats. This virus, as well as the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (comparable to human AIDS virus), can incubate in the body for years before symptoms show. This test is essential prior to vaccinating with FeLV vaccine as the immune system must be intact to process the vaccine.

Deworming: $10.00/dose x 2 doses

Your kitten will be dewormed with pyrantel pamoate. All kittens should be dewormed at least twice for roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Pregnancy releases encysted worms into the mother's bloodstream, where they are passed on to the kittens. Deworming doses are according to weight, the difference in price for a larger kitten will be added to the total.

Avid Microchip: $45.00

This is included in our kitten package because we feel it is important to plan for the unexpected. Microchipping helps ensure that your pet is returned to you should it become lost/separated from you and your family.
