A zoonotic disease, also known as zoonosis, is a type of infectious disease that can be transmitted from your pet to your family. These diseases are caused by pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can be found in animals, many of which show no outward signs.

If your feline friend is due for their vaccinations or intestinal parasite test, you can contact our The Kitty Clinic to schedule a wellness examination.


If your pet is not a current patient with The Kitty Clinic, and just staying as a guest for a duration, please provide us with a copy of your cat or kitten's most recent medical records so we can verify that they are up-to-date.

Thank you for your understanding and adherence to this Boarding Policy.
