At Clare Vet Group we strongly advise you to insure your pet in case of accident or illness.
At first vaccination, you will be offered 4 weeks free insurance. As long as you have no other policy for your kitten, we advise that you avail of this.
Take care when researching insurance, as some companies only provide cover for a year and lifelong conditions can be left uninsured after the years cover has elapsed.
In this practice we recommend that cats of both sexes, if not required for breeding, should be neutered at an early age.
Both queens and tom cats can be neutered from 5 months onwards and they should be done after their vaccination course is completed.
Kittens should be wormed from 6 weeks of age, we recommend that you worm your kitten fortnightly until 12 weeks of age.
After 12 weeks of age we recommend that you worm your kitten monthly up to 6 months, thereafter every 3 months is sufficient.
