Vaccinations
vacAt Mile House we offer full cat vaccinations against all common cat diseases and additional vaccinations against Feline Leukaemia Virus – a dangerous disease which is spread by cat bites, usually whilst fighting.

Cats can have their first vaccination from 9 weeks of age, followed by a booster 3 weeks later which will ensure full  immunity. However your kitten is not fully protected until 10-14 days after the second vaccination so we advise that you keep your cat indoors until this time. With your vaccinations your cat will receive a full general health check and vaccination booklet – you will need this if your cat ever needs to go into a cattery.

Regular yearly booster vaccinations are vital to ensure continuous protection.

Neutering
KittensNeutering of cats is very important for population control. A female cat can get pregnant from around five months of age, so it is best to spay her before she gets to this age. Male kittens should likewise ideally be castrated before they are five months old. Both males and females will come into the veterinary surgery as a day patient as we need to operate under a general anaesthetic. Usually we ask for your pet to be starved from 8pm the night before (water can be left down) and to be dropped off around 8.30am, we can arrange a pick up time to suit you
