Vaccines and regular health exams are key preventive care measures and are critical to the well-being of your cats to help protect them from potentially deadly infectious diseases like Panleukopenia, Feline Leukemia Virus (FLV) and Rabies.
Vaccination protects cats from disease by exposing their body's immune system to inactive or parts of a type of bacteria or virus. Our doctors will help you decide which vaccines are appropriate for your cat's risk factors. Proper administration and giving a vaccine at the correct age and time interval is critical for proper protection. Vaccination is particularly critical in young animals that have naive immune systems. Vaccination typically starts at 6-8 weeks of age and the kitten series is completed around 16 weeks of age.
Vaccinations are generally accompanied by doctor consultation and examination to ensure your cat is healthy enough for the vaccines. We will keep you up to date when your cats will be due for booster vaccinations during their adult years.
