When you adopt a Persian kitten from Rocky Mountain Persians, a Persian cattery, your kitten comes with a two year written health guarantee against congenital defects. Our Persian, Himalayan and Exotic Shorthair kittens are vaccinated at 8 and 12 weeks of age during this time they also receive a well baby examination by a licensed veterinarian. We vaccinate our Persian kittens against the following:
Feline panleukopenia (feline distemper) This is among the most widespread of all cat diseases, and is extremely contagious. Characterized by fever, loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea, feline panleukopenia causes high death loss, particularly among kittens.
Feline viral rhinotracheitis (FVR) This is a highly contagious respiratory disease characterized by sneezing, appetite loss, fever, and eye inflammation. As the disease progresses, a discharge is noticeable from both nose and eye.
Feline calicivirus (FCV) This is another serious feline respiratory infection. Often occurring simultaneously with feline viral rhinotracheitis. Signs of infection are similar to FVR (fever, loss of appetite, nasal discharge), but calicivirus-infected cats may also have ulcers on the tongue.
Feline Bordatella (Bb) Feline Bordatella is also known as Kennel Cough, a complex of infections rather than an infection by one agent is recommended if the adopting family has a dog. We recommend any family who is adopting a Persian, Himalayan or Exotic Shorthair kitten from us have their veterinarian vaccinate against bordetella.
Our Persian kittens are de-wormed with Nemex-2 de-wormer, at least three times by the time they are 12 weeks old.
If a Persian kitten is flown on an airline and is over 16 weeks of age the kitten will be vaccinated against rabies. Rabies is one of the worlds most publicized and feared diseases and is almost always fatal. Rabies virus attacks the brain and central nervous system and is transmitted to humans chiefly through the bite of an infected animal. In 1981-1982, for the first time, more cats than dogs were reported to have rabies. This situation has led many authorities to require rabies vaccination for all cats.
