North Carolina's Newest Felines
Your new bundle of fur will provide hours of entertainment chasing laser beams and tumbling head over tail down hallways. The unconditional love you share makes you want only the best for your kitten, and The Cat Clinic of Cary is happy to assist you with creating a comprehensive health care plan to meet all of his or her needs.
Wellness Exam and Vaccinations
Schedule your kitten's first visit with us within a couple weeks of bringing him or her home. This will allow our veterinarians to complete a comprehensive nose-to-tail physical examination, while answering any questions you may have regarding your new feline family member. A complete dental exam will be performed and an at-home dental regime can be discussed, developed, and demonstrated. During this initial exam, your kitten will receive his or her first set of vaccinations, an important step in building a healthy immune system. These initial vaccinations will be followed up with a series of boosters over the next four months.
Spaying or Neutering Your Pet
Spaying or neutering your cat can eliminate the occurrence of unplanned and unwanted litters, aiding in reducing the number of homeless cats. In addition, these routine surgical procedures can decrease your cat's chances of contracting serious medical conditions, including some types of reproductive cancers. Undesirable behaviors, such as roaming, urinating inside, and aggressiveness, are usually resolved as well. Your veterinarian can discuss these procedures and answer any questions you may have during any exam.
Parasite and Heartworm Prevention
Annual screening and year-round protection are two easy, cost-effective ways to safeguard your pet, and family, from fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites, and heartworm disease. Your kitten's veterinarian will examine your new pet for any signs of fleas or ticks that may have been picked up prior to coming home with you. An intestinal parasite examination is recommended for all new and current patients, as some of these parasites can be transmitted to their human counterparts if gone undetected.
Purrs 4 Life Program
Developed based on recommendations from the Academy of Feline Practitioners and the American Association of Feline Practitioners, our Purrs 4 Life program provides comprehensive health care services for your pet with money saving benefits for you.
What your kitten eats is important. Our clinic recommends Royal Canin brand foods as an excellent source of nutrition for your cat. Take time during your appointment to ask questions about how to select the best food for your pet, how often and how much you should be feeding your new pet, and the importance of keeping your pet well hydrated. Kitties love treats, and our staff will be more than happy to help you select some options from our store that not only are good for them, but also taste yummy, too.
Just like any new addition, your kitten needs help in learning how to fit in with your family. Our staff can assist you with issues such as litter box training, the importance of scratch posts, and how to best acclimate your new pet with the rest of your two- and four-legged family members.
