Preventive Care


Vaccinations at VCA Cat Hospital of Chicago
Identifying problems before they develop is an important part of offering your cat optimal care and a long, healthy life. Since an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, the veterinarians and staff at VCA Cat Hospital of Chicago are strong advocates of preventive care.

Ensuring your cat receives recommended vaccines is an excellent way to protect them in the long road. Illnesses such as the feline leukemia virus, feline immunodeficiency, feline upper respiratory viruses, ringworm, heartworm, and rabies can debilitate your cat and shorten their life. While some vaccines prevent common infectious diseases, others protect against dangers present in a cat's daily lifestyle. VCA Cat Hospital of Chicago follows the vaccination protocols put forth by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP), thus ensuring your cat receives the best possible veterinary care. We also use only non-adjuvanted vaccines in cats, considered best practice for feline patients.
