NOTE:

KITTEN CHECK UPS AND VACCINES:
Each kitten check up includes the exam and consultation with the veterinarian, the vaccination and administration. The prices listed apply to healthy kittens for core vaccines for indoor kittens. If you think your kitten will not be a strictly indoor cat, or if other risk factors are identified by the veterinarian, additional vaccine components will be recommended which will mean a moderate increase in cost.

PARASITE PREVENTION:

The listed costs for parasite prevention are *approximates. Prices will vary depending on your kitten’s weight and on the medication recommended.


SURGERY:

All of our Surgical Procedures (and listed prices) include the following:

  • Pre-surgical assessment
  • Day Hospitalization
  • General Anaesthetic and Anesthetic Monitoring of vital signs (including blood oxygen levels, heart rate, ECG, breathing patterns and body temperature)
  • Surgical Procedure (including sterile surgical pack and materials)
  • Pain Medication (both go home medications and during the procedure)
  • Suture Removal (10 to 14 days following the procedure)

Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work
Although, it is very common for veterinary clinics to recommend or even insist on running pre-anesthetic blood work for spays and neuters, the doctors at the Renforth Veterinary Clinic do not routinely recommend it for our young, healthy patients.

Spay Prices: Listed prices apply to healthy female kittens with normal anatomy when spayed prior to going in to heat for the first time. It can be difficult to assess whether or not a kitten has gone in to heat as the external signs are generally vague and often absent; the upper end of the listed price range applies to kittens that are determined to be in heat during surgery. If there are any other anticipated additional costs, your veterinarian will discuss this with you during your appointment.


Neuter Prices: The listed price applies to healthy male kittens with normal anatomy. If your veterinarian anticipates any additional costs, these will be discussed during your appointment.
