Prolong Your Cat's Life
East Hartford Animal Clinic provides a full range of preventive care services to help your cat live a longer, happier life and to increase the odds of detecting problems early, before they become severe and costly.
Our veterinarians make their annual preventive care recommendations based on the guidelines established by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and take into consideration your cat's hereditary factors, age, medical history and lifestyle.
Annual preventive care for cats typically includes:
- At least one annual Physical Examination at which time our veterinarians will take a complete medical history, make nutrition recommendations, assess behavior, and review any known medical conditions.
During the exam our doctors will perform a:
- Ear and Eye Examination
- Cardiopulmonary (Heart and Lung) analysis
- Temperature Reading
- Abdominal Palpation
- Dental Exam
- Dermatological Exam
- Musculoskeletal Evaluation
- Vaccination recommendations include core vaccines Rabies and Feline Distemper. Your veterinarian may also suggest the Feline Leukemia (FeLV) vaccine for outdoor cats.
- Parasite Control Products to prevent and repel heartworms, intestinal parasites, fleas and ticks. Roundworms can be transmitted to humans, so controlling these parasites protects your cat and also your family.
- Diagnostic Testing to check for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and/or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), heartworms or other internal parasites and early stages of diseases which cannot be detected during a physical exam.
- Your veterinarian will also discuss other services, such as dental care or microchipping, that can lead to a longer and healthier life for your cat.
We believe it is important for every cat to have a physical examination at least once per year.
To ensure your cat gets their yearly check-up we are offering an incentive: Free vaccinations for the life of your cat!
- There is a one-time, non-refundable enrollment fee to start the program.
- The fee is $89.00 per cat or dog.
- Each enrollment fee will cover one pet. You may enroll as many pets as you like, but the program is not transferable to any other animals or client. The fee will not be honored by any other animal hospitals.
Return each year for your cat's annual physical examination by our veterinarian, and any vaccinations for which he or she is due will be given absolutely free of charge! You will be responsible for the annual physical examination fee at that time.
There will be a 30 day grace period following the due date for that physical examination. The program will be considered null and void after 30 days following the date that the annual exam is due. At that time, you may either re-enroll the pet in the program, or resume paying for the vaccines at the time they are given.
Vaccines covered by the program:
- Feline vaccines: FVRCP, Feline Leukemia, and Rabies
- Canine vaccines: DHLPP, DHPP, Leptospirosis, Bordetella, and Rabies
*Over the life of your pet, you will be saving significantly as vaccinations can cost anywhere between $20 and $40 (possibly more at other hospitals).
*The program covers only the fee for dog and cat vaccines, and only those vaccines listed above. Any special-order vaccines, such as Lyme and the Influenza vaccination are not included. Fees for all other services including: heartworm testing, intestinal parasite testing, leukemia/FIV testing, physical examinations, medications and/or other treatments are not covered and will need to be paid at the time of service.
