Our Promise To YOU
test all new cats coming into our home and cattery for FIV and FeLV
before introducing them to our others cats and annually retest them. All of our cats are PKD DNA tested negative. They are also given a full
physical examination by a licensed veterinarian, are fully de-wormed
and receive all necessary vaccines before being used in our breeding
cats are vet checked, de-wormed and vaccinated to ensure they
are as healthy as possible as we do not want to purposely use any
unhealthy cats in our breeding program. Unvaccinated and unhealthy
cats can produce unhealthy kittens with weak immune systems. So, not
only is it important to ensure breeding cats are healthy for their own
sake but also for the sake of their kittens.
We also use a lot of preventative treatments here at Heart'nsoul since
we are well aware that by simply going to a cat show or to the vets
that we could end up with a BIG problem.
vet, Dr. Raj, does a complete physical examination, which is a
nose-to-tail inspection for any abnormalities and he will feel all over
the body for any lumps and bumps. He uses a stethoscope to listen to
the heart and lungs and checks legs for any signs of patellar luxation. He will also check vital signs (temperature, pulse, and respiration)
and record the current weight. If there are any concerns, more tests
will be preformed (blood work, urinalysis, stool analysis, xray,
ultrasound, etc). Any findings are recorded on our kitties vet records.
We feel honored to be able to use Belmont Veterinary
Services & Beaver Creek Animal Hospital and know wholeheartedly
that our fur-kids are in the very best hands!
Dr. Raj is a
reference for us here at Heart'nsoul. We feel that there is no better
reference for a breeder than a veterinarian and past kitten buyers (who we also have as references).
We do offer a 1 year guarantee on fatal congenital defects
and give 3 business days for our kitten buyers to have their new
kitten checked over by a licensed veterinarian of their choice. If any
thing is found to be wrong (other then any issue the buyer has already been told about and was okay with), a refund is given (minus deposit) upon the kitten
We also offer lifetime support to our kitten buyers and are here to answer any questions or concerns they may have.
Although we cannot and will not guarantee that the kittens we sell will NEVER get sick, as no breeder can, we do promise to do all that we can to ensure our cats and kittens
are as healthy and happy as possible and to never knowingly sell a
kitten to any one without being honest and upfront about any health or
behavioral issue that he/she may have. We think one very important thing for a breeder to have is a conscience and I know that we most definitely do.
We pride ourselves in being honest and upfront and in educating kitten
buyers in preventative treatments to ensure that the kitten they
receive from Heart'nsoul or ANY other cattery are in fact given the
best chance of being completely healthy and happy in their new home.
