*finding a animal Breeder

when looking for a breeder consider this, all breeders are novice. There is always some thing new to learn! With the Peterbald and Donskoy cats there is so little genetic information available. There is very little fact based information on genetics to go on with the Peterbald and Donskoy cats. Breeders depend on there experience. So far we know Peterbalds and Donskoy cats respond very well to the following medications.

*Clindamycin

 ~Clindamycin is a lincomycin antibiotic, it works extremely well to treat most infections in Peterbald and Donskoy cats. This medication is a broad spectrum antibiotic.

Doxcycline Hyclate

~Doxcycline has been very effective in treating Peterbald and Donskoy cats for infection.

*****A Peterbald breeder should know and give this information out freely*****

I am not a veterinarian and will not tell you to use these medications. I will say it is a good idea to keep them in mind when talking to your veterinarian about any nessacery medications in the future, as they respond well to them both. 

NuVet

This vitamin is  used in our cattery for all our kittens from Birth to 2 years old. What it does is provide your kitten with an immune system boost, while it develops its own. The NuVet is not only a great source of much needed vitamins, it also contains Pine bark extract. Pine bark extract is a natural healing agent. Its a very small investment when considering your animals over all health. After the age of 2 it is still a great source of vitamins, but is not nessasary in terms of building the immune system, as they have developed there own by then.  it is a great product that I feel can only better your animals health.


~A breeder should always be willing to share and direct you with medical information

~They should be open to showing you all there animals health records upon request. Especially the information on the animal in question and the parents.

~a breeder should send you daily or at least weekly updates on your animal.

~a breeder should be willing to send you live video on your animal often while you are waiting for it to arrive.

~Should be willing to answer any and all of your questions willingly.

~ It is your responsibility to back ground check your breeder on line. There are many places on line to check breeders out. on Facebook,  Instagram, twitter, Google, the complaints board, and more. Use your resources, so you don't regret your choice. There are at least ten bad breeders for every one good breeder  

*Don't be afraid to ask questions its your right and your responsibility*
