If you choose to have this done, each microchip contains a registration number and the phone number of the registry for that particular brand of chip that will be used. A special handheld scanner can read the radio frequency of that chip and it will display the owners ID information. An animal shelter or veterinary clinic that finds your pet can contact the registry to get your name and phone number.

A wellness examination is a complete physical examination along with diagnostic testing (if necessary) that may include blood work, urinalysis, and checking a stool sample for parasites. In many cases, a wellness examination can help detect the early stages of diseases. We would especially recommend this for felines that are older or nearing Senior Age.
Whether you have kittens or adult cats, We can help you figure out which vaccines are best and how often your kitty/cat should get shots. This will usually depends on their age, overall health, and lifestyle conditions. Also, local and state governments have laws about vaccines like rabies, which we have to comply with.
When to give vaccines. If they are Kittens they should start getting vaccinations when they are 6 to 8 weeks old until they are about 16 weeks old. Then they must receive "boosters" again a year later. The shots come in a series every 3 to 4 weeks. Adult cats need shots less often, usually every year or every 3 years, depending on how long a vaccine is designed to last.
Which shots will they need? Some vaccines are recommended for all cats. They protect against:
Panleukopenia (also known as feline distemper)
Feline viral rhinotracheitis

Dental disease is a major reality for many domestic and feral cats. Between the ages of 3-4 years old, many cats will have significant gingivitis and even have periodontal disease. It is usually slow in progressing but gets very serious and causes significant pain and affects the overall health of your cat. Many cats may not show signs of oral discomfort until it is very advanced and they are in extreme pain. The pain that is associated with dental problems comes slowly over time and cats will simply learn to live with it, which can cause additional health issues down the road. That is why it is so important that all cats annually have their oral health assessed. We can provide those services.
