Cat Vaccinations

Vaccinations for your cat is an important aspect of their overall health and wellness. Getting your cat vaccinated, helps protect them from some common cat diseases.

Does my indoor cat need to be vaccinated?


During your cat’s annual examination, our veterinarians will discuss vaccines and may recommend for indoor cats to be vaccinated with the core vaccine, as you never know if he/she may possibly get out. It is good to know, even if they do, they are protected from some of the diseases they may come into contact with out there.

What are FVRCP and core vaccine for cats?


The core vaccines for a cat are FVRCP which is a combination vaccine that protects cats from 3 viruses which are rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia. The other core vaccine for cats is a rabies vaccine. The other vaccine that our veterinarians may discuss for your cat is for feline leukemia virus (FeLV).

How often does my adult cat need to be vaccination?


We recommend yearly annual wellness exams by our veterinarians to assess your cat’s overall health and make sure that they stay up to date on their vaccinations.

Are there any risk associated with cat vaccines?


Vaccines are the best way to protect your cat from potentially deadly diseases. As with any vaccinations, there is the risk of vaccination reactions and our veterinarians will discuss any risks and answer any questions you may have before giving the vaccines.
