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.
