Medical

To ensure that your cat remains fit and healthy during its stay in the cattery as well as afterwards, we have several conditions in place, which we ask all cat owners wishing to board with us comply with.

These conditions will safeguard not only the health and well being of your cat, but also that of the other cats in the cattery.

Therefore, before your cat is accepted into the Cattery, they MUST satisfy the following conditions:

  • Cats must be NEUTERED (unless less than 6 months old)
  • Cats must be vaccinated for FELINE INFECTIOUS ENTERITIS
  • Cats must be vaccinated for CAT FLU

Landport Cattery also requests that your cat is treated for:

  • FLEAS
  • WORMS

 

Vaccinations

A current up to date vaccination certificate for protection against Cat Flu and Feline Enteritis must be produced on arrival. Cats will NOT be accepted for boarding without one.

Vaccinations and Boosters are needed annually for ongoing protection. It’s is important that these are done at least 10 days before entry into the Cattery. This is to ensure that there are no adverse reactions to the booster and more importantly the booster has had chance to take effect.

what is the vaccination procedure?

When your cat goes to the vets for its first vaccinations it will have:

  1. It’s first primary vaccination
  2. 3 weeks later – your cat will go back for its secondary vaccinations
  3. 2 weeks after its secondary vaccinations – your cat is ready to go into a cattery as the immune system is fully protected.
  4. 12 months later – from the date of your last cats vaccination you need to go back to the vets for its annual Booster injection.

what if my cat’s vaccination dates have lapsed?

If your cats vaccination dates have lapsed by a few weeks don’t worry just go back to the vets for its annual booster.

If its lapsed by a few months you need to consult your vets as probably your cat will need to start all over again as explained above.

 

Medical History

All cats will be given a quick visual examination before being shown to their chalet to ensure they are in good health.

Cats must not be suffering from, or suspected to be suffering from, any infectious or contagious disease, such as:-

  • Sneezing
  • Runny Eyes
  • Ear Mite
  • Sickness & Diarrhoea

Landport Cattery reserves the right to refuse board to cats it considers at risk itself, or a risk to other boarders.

It is important to inform the cattery of any health problems your cat may have had, or is likely to have, in case your cat is taken ill during its board.

Should your cat be taken ill and needs to see a vet, we will endeavour to contact you or your nominated emergency contact before seeing a vet. If this is not possible we will take your cat to our nominated veterinary practice with whom we have a very close and supportive working relationship.

PLEASE INFORM THE CATTERY IF YOUR CAT HAS VISITED THE VET WITHIN THE TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THEIR STAY IN THE CATTERY
