What vaccinations are needed for my cat?

 

Kitten:

-   FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia) at about 8-10 weeks and again at about 12-14 weeks of age.

-   FeLV (Leukemia vaccine) at about 12-14 weeks and about 15-17 weeks of age.

-   Rabies at about 15-17 weeks of age.

 

Adult Cats:

-   FVRCP at one year after last kitten vaccine, then every 3 years

-   Rabies at one year after last kitten vaccine, then every 3 years

-   FeLV at one year after last kitten vaccine, then every year if cat fights, high feline density areas, otherwise every 3 years.

 

In the case of kittens, we believe that prior to vaccination, they should be tested for feline leukemia and feline AIDS because certain medications are not effective if the kitten has already developed either of these diseases.

When it comes to worming, we feel that kittens should be de-wormed as early as possible. But if your pet is at a very young age, we might decide to wait to ensure that your pet’s internal organs are mature enough to handle treatment.

All kittens are tested, as early as possible, for intestinal parasites.
