At Your Pet’s Vet, we believe it is essential that all pets are adequately vaccinated. This helps to protect both your cat and the pet population as a whole.
Responsible pet care means giving kittens their initial course of vaccinations and realising that this cannot protect them for the rest of their lives. Adult cats also require regular vaccination to maintain immunity against disease.
Kittens are ‘temporarily’ protected against many diseases by antibodies received through their mother’s milk. These maternal antibodies decline in the first couple of months of their lives but until they drop sufficiently they can also neutralise vaccines. This is why a series of vaccinations is necessary for a kitten.
Initial vaccination programs should provide at least 2 vaccinations, 3-4 weeks apart. These protect against Feline Panleukopenia, Calicivirus, Rhinotracheitis, Chlamydia and Leukaemia virus at or after 8 weeks of age. Three vaccinations, 2-4 weeks apart that protect against Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) are recommended at or after 8 weeks of age.
Vaccination for Adult Cats
The immunity from kitten vaccination weakens over time and your pet can again become susceptible to disease. Annual health checks and booster vaccinations will provide the best protection for the life of your pet.
At Your Pet’s Vet, we can organise the most suitable vaccination program for your cat, regardless of age or breed. Our qualified team will vaccinate and protect your cat against:
- Feline Enteritis (also known as Feline Panleukopenia)
- Feline Respiratory Disease (Cat flu)
- Chlamydia (also known as Chlamydophila)
- Feline Leukaemia (FeLV)
- Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV or Feline AIDS)
Caring for Your Cat After Vaccination
Following their vaccination, your cat may be off-colour for a day or two, or have some slight swelling or tenderness at the injection site.
Access to food and water and a comfortable area to rest are usually all that is required for a quick recovery. However, if the response seems more severe, you should contact us immediately for further advice.
