Toskharags Health Guarantee
Toskharags wants you to be happy with our kittens we guarantee NO problems, and offer this health guarantee. At six weeks kittens lose antibodies because the immunity, which was provided by itís 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 and immunized, dewormed if necessary, and thoroughly checked and guarantee them free from internal and external parasites. We keep detailed records of all vaccinations, exams and kitten development, and provide it along with a Health Certificate from a licensed Veterinarian, along with Toskharags written Health Guarantee to new pet parents.
Feline Vaccinations at 6 & 9 Weeks
- 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 transmit 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.
Feline FeLV/FIV Test Between 9-12 Weeks
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 kittenís parents, both parents have been tested negative, and vaccinated for FeLV and FIV before mating. A rabies vaccine and a distemper booster are 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 2 years old.
Hereditary and Congenital Defects
Toskhrags further warrants that all our kittens are free and clear of known feline hereditary and congenital defects. We guarantee all kittens leaving Toskhrags are healthy for a three year period. To be valid, the new owner must have our kitten seen by a licensed Vertinarian within 5 days of leaving Toskharags to verify the health condition of our kittens. If the new home has multiple pets, our kitten should be kept separate from those pets until seen by a Vet. We do not advocate declawing (ever).
