Every effort is made to ensure that any cat adopted from Pacific Cat Clinic is in good health. Preventative measures that have already taken place to ensure good health include a blood test for Felv and FIV, fungal culture and physical exams. The animals are, however, rescue cats and thus may have underlying health conditions that cannot be foreseen. Diarrhea and vomiting in kittens is not uncommon, especially in rescue kittens. Your kitten may show signs of vomiting/diarrhea when first brought home, this is usually a stress response. We have examined the kitten and found it healthy to the best of our knowledge at the time of discharge.
An apparently healthy animal may appear well at time of adoption, but may be
incubating an infectious disease or parasite. Illnesses may be non-diagnosable. Pacific Cat Clinic reserves the right to charge for diagnosis, treatment, and management of this cat in the unlikely event that an unexpected medical problem develops. In the event that illness occurs within the first year of the kitten’s life, you as the owner, are responsible to cover the costs associated with the illness.
Pacific Cat Clinic is not responsible for the kitten’s medical needs in the first year of life outside of routine care. A six week free trial of Pet Health Insurance is also included in the kitten adoption program. This is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to be carried on throughout the kitten’s life, as veterinary care (especially emergencies) can be quite costly at times. We encourage you to investigate insurance companies and policies over the next six weeks. The kitten will also be sent home with a goody bag, with some food to assist them in settling into their new home.
A discharge appointment will be made within 1 week of adoption approval, failure to uphold this appointment will forfeit your kitten along with your $100.00 deposit.
