Vaccine Protocols

Kittens getting vaccinated at The Feline Medical Center

Vaccinations are vital to the health and protection of your cat, and serve as a preventive measure to combating viral diseases like Feline Rhinotracheitis/Feline Calicivirus, Parainfluenza virus, Distemper, Lyme, Panleukopenia, Feline Leukemia Virus and Rabies. Vaccinations are accompanied by a veterinarian consultation and examination to make certain that your cat's condition is stable enough to receive them.

Vaccinations help to combat diseases by exposing the cat's immune system to inactive or small amount of a particular form of bacteria or virus. Our doctors will help you decide which vaccines are appropriate for your cat's risk factors. Proper and timely administration is paramount to ensure for optimal protection. Vaccinations are particularly important to young animals that have immature immune systems. Vaccinations generally begin at 6-8 weeks of age and are given every three to four weeks until the series is completed.
