FVRCP: is an acronym for the standard cat vaccine, also called "feline distemper vaccine," given to cats and kittens throughout their lives as part of a preventative health program and considered, along with the Rabies vaccine, as a CORE (must have) vaccine.

                       P          Panleukopenia


       Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus: is a viral infectious upper respiratory disease caused by feline herpes virus type 1. This virus is an            extremely common cause of respiratory disease and results in chronic, often like long, infection with intermittent recurrence causing          respiratory and sometimes eye disease. It is spread easily through airborne respiratory secretions and direct contact with a carrier          cat or contaminated objects. Unvaccinated cats are most susceptible as well as they very young and the very old.


       Calicivirus: is a common viral infectious respiratory disease that can cause mouth sores resulting in severe oral pain. Transmission        is by direct contact with an infected cat or by contact with contaminated objects. The virus is very resistant to disinfectants and                  persists  in the environment. Unvaccinated and inadequately vaccinated cats of all ages are at risk.


       Panleukopenia:  is a severe, highly infectious and sometimes fatal disease of the gastrointestinal tract, the immune system and the          nervous system.  The disease is named for the characteristic severe decrease in white blood cells, they body's defense against                disease.  The virus is very persistent in the environment.  This virus spreads by direct contact with infected cats or by contact with              viral particles in the environment.  Unvaccinated and inadequately  vaccinated cats of all ages are at risk.


Leukemina (FELV): is a contagious virus that is generally transmitted when a cat comes into contact with saliva from an infected cat (via social behaviors, such as grooming, and sharing food or water bowls; in-utero, mother-to-kitten transmission can occur). Once a cat contracts the virus, it cannot be cured. Though it is not a core vaccine, it is recommended for cats at risk (outdoor cats).


Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV): is a slow virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years. FIV is a cat-only disease that is not spread casually. It can be spread through blood transfusions, in-utero, mother to kitten, or penetrating bite wounds.


Fecals: Enable us to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, coccidia and giardia. SInce intestinal parasites live in you pet's gastrointestinal tract, they are usually hidden from view. Unlike external parasites like fleas and ticks, most intestinal parasites are never seen. They only way to detect the presence of intestinal parasites and identify them is by doing a fecal.


Senior Bloodwork consists off

  • A complete blood count (cbc) tells you if your pet has an infection, if inflammation is present or if your pets is anemic.
  • A complete chemistry panel, including electrolytes, provides information about your pet's liver, kidneys and pancreas; as well as other functions of the body, such as blood sugar and hydration.
  • A urinalysis identifies an infection or inflammation in the urinary tract.
  • A thyroid function test detects whether or not your pet's thyroid gland is functioning properly. Thyroid Disease is very common in older cats.


Feline Advantage: is a monthly topical that controls all flea life stages. Cats highest at risk (outdoor cats) should begin prevention when they are 8 weeks of age and weigh more than 2 pounds.
