The Persian Kittens ® Health Guarantee
Persian Kittens ® wants you to be happy with our kittensl We guarantee NO problems, and offer this health guarantee. At six weeks kittens lose antibodies because the immunity which was provided by it's mother from nursing starts to wear off as a kitten is weaned. When our kittens are six weeks old we have all kittens examined by a licensed Veterinarian. Due to immunization controversies, we no longer immunized our kittens, We leave that up to the new pet parents to do if they wish. We do provied a schdule of immunization recommendations. We keep detailed records of exams and kitten development, and provide it along with a Health Certificate from a licensed Veterinarian, along with Persian Kittens ® written Health Guarantee to new pet parents.
•Distemper virus (also called Panleukopenia) - Extremely contagious, often fatal to adults, almost always fatal to kittens.The actual "distemper vaccine includes the following:
----- Rhinotracheitis - most severe & common upper respiratory virus
----- Calicivirus - major cause of upper respiratory disease
----- Chlamydiosis - highly contagious bacterial infection of the eyes
•Feline Leukemia - Number one infectious killer of cats in the US. Any bodily fluid of an infected cat (tears, urine, saliva, blood, etc.) can transmit the disease. Drinking out of the same water dish, playing together, fighting, breeding, or any other contact can also tansmit it.
•Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) - Acts upon the immune system, eventually causing permanent liver and kidney problems. Transmitted through any bodily fluids and is also airborne.
Every kitten is not only vaccinated for FeLV and FIV, they are also tested for it. And since vaccination is ineffective if it was passed on from the kitten's parents, both parents have been tested negative, and vaccinated for FeLV and FIV before mating. A rabies vaccine and a distemper booster is also given at this visit. For kittens with a family history of vaccine sensitivity, it is recommended to separate the FeLV & FIV from the distemper booster and rabies vaccine, until the kitten is at least 6 months old. It is also recommended to have a shot of diphenhydramine (Benadryl) before any vaccines to avoid possible allergic reactions to the vaccines.
