West Chester, OH New Kitten Care

Cat Care Hospital is a full service veterinary facility designed exclusively with your cat in mind from new kittens to senior cats in the Greater Cincinnati area since 1993.

New Kitten Care

The average annual expenditure for owners of cats, including food, medical care, etc., is roughly $618 a year. Below are the pricing and descriptions of services recommended for a new kitten during the first year.

***The fee for treatment of any conditions noted during an exam will be additional.

  • Examination - The most important part of your cat’s visit is the exam. The doctor will examine your kitten from nose to tail and alert you to any current or potential problems noted. Common problems found during a routine kitten examination may include ear mites, fleas, and congenital defects. It is also important to know if your kitten is healthy before any vaccinations are given, since vaccinating an unhealthy kitten will be ineffective.
  • Feline Leukemia/FIV test - This test is for two immunosuppressive viruses (similar to HIV, but only found in cats). Kittens can contract these diseases from their mothers or from other cats. These two diseases are fatal and not curable. It is important to know the status of your kitten so that we may treat him/her appropriately. The results are available in 10 minutes.
  • FVRCPC Vaccination - This vaccine protects against the three most serious upper respiratory diseases and the parvo-like disease panleukopenia. This vaccine is given to all cats, even cats that are strictly indoors, because the diseases are airborne and any cat can become affected. Furthermore, this vaccine is required before your kitten can be hospitalized (ex. for spay or neuter) or boarded at a kennel. To be fully protected, the FVRCPC vaccine must be given at least twice at three week intervals until the kitten is 12 weeks old, then boostered yearly.
  • Feline Leukemia Vaccination - This vaccine is given to your kitten if he/she will come into contact with other cats that go outdoors. If your kitten or any other cat in your household will be going outside unattended, this vaccine will be necessary. This vaccine is omitted if your kitten is strictly indoors and does not come in contact with any other cat that goes out. For full protection with this vaccine, it is given in a series of two vaccinations 3-4 weeks apart. This vaccine is a timed vaccine and must be given within this 3-4 week period or protection will lapse. After the initial series, this vaccine is boostered after 1 year, then every 3 years thereafter.
  • Rabies Vaccination - This vaccine is required by law in most counties in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio. Rabies is a real problem in Ohio, mostly in the form of bats. The reason even indoor cats are vaccinated is that rabid bats may get into houses and bite or scratch your cat when he/she attempts to catch them. The first rabies vaccine is given at 12 weeks and lasts for 1 year. Subsequent rabies vaccines last 3 years each.
  • Intestinal Parasite Exam - A check of your kitten’s stool can reveal parasites, some of which can be transmittable to humans. It is important to treat intestinal parasites to prevent problems in your kitten and infection of your family.
