The kitten that you have purchased from this cattery is guaranteed to be in a healthy condition and free from internal and external parasites at the time of transfer of ownership.
When my veterinarian examined this kitten any abnormalities or health concerns that he/she would have had at that time would be documented on the kitten’s Health Certificate.
Your kitten has received his/her first kitten vaccination and is due to have a second 4 weeks from the date on his/her health certificate.
You will find the health certificate included in your kitten packet.
The breeder of this kitten requires all new owners to have the kitten seen by their new veterinarian within a week of purchase, please let the breeder know if this is a problem. The breeder recommends the owner bring a stool sample to the first vet appointment. This is in the best interest of the kitten and their new owner(s). This must be done for this Health Guarantee to be honored. Refunds will not be given after the first week of transfer. If your veterinarian finds any serious health concerns, the breeder asks that he/she document them for the breeder. If agreed by both owner and breeder, the breeder will take the kitten back and give the owner a new kitten or a kitten from an upcoming litter. This health guarantee is good for one year from the date of transfer of ownership as long as the required veterinary visit has been accomplished. The majority of cats have herpes virus in their system, stress or other factors may cause herpes symptoms. This health guarantee does not cover the herpes virus. Any serious health issues that may come up after the first year will be handled on a case by case basis.
It is common for kittens to possibly get slight upper respiratory or loose stools when they change homes. This can be a result of the recent vaccination they received before going home, the stress of changing homes or even from new food or water. Usually a kitten will get through this without a problem but sometimes they require a trip to the vet and maybe some antibiotics. As the new owner you will have to decide if a trip to the vet is in order. Some Maine Coons will develop gingivitis and may need teeth cleaned or pulled. To help prevent it, the breeder recommends that you brush or swab your cat’s teeth and check their gums for redness regularly. Your vet can advise you with further recommendations.
Refunds or replacement kittens will not be given if this kitten/cat has been vaccinated for FeLV/FIP, Feline Leukemia Virus/ Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus or FIP, Feline Infectious Peritonitis. This cattery does not support the use of these 2 vaccinations and using them on the kitten or cat that you purchased from Anglicoons will Void this Health Guarantee. Testing for these diseases is fine but the breeder does not recommend these vaccinations. Declawing will also Void this Health Guarantee. If for some reason you feel the need to have this kitten/cat declawed please contact the breeder for a consultation.
