Cat Vaccinations

Many feline diseases can be prevented through a vaccination program. We recommend an appointment with one of our small animal veterinarians to discuss your cat’s specific lifestyle and vaccination requirements.

Does my indoor cat need to be vaccinated?

There are many ways that your indoor cat can be exposed to a disease. Some of the very hardy viruses can be carried on clothing, shoes, and hands of a pet owner, putting even those that live strictly indoors at risk.

What are FVRCP and core vaccine for cats?

We recommend vaccinating for Feline Panleukopenia (FPV), which is the most contagious viral disease with a high death rate amongst unvaccinated cats. Feline Rhinotracheitis which is the most severe and widespread upper-respiratory virus and Feline Leukemia, which is a virus long associated with a leading cause of disease and death in cats.

How often does my adult cat need to be vaccinated?

Protective immune responses decline over time, so the vaccines that your kitten receives cannot protect your cat for the rest of its life. As immunity weakens your cat can again become susceptible to disease. Your veterinarian can recommend a vaccination schedule which best fits your cat’s needs.

Are there any risk associated with cat vaccines?

Occasionally there is a transient fever and lethargy 24 hours post vaccination.

Best vets, nice and clean. Prices better than most. Wont take my pets anywhere else.
