At Companion Animal Hospital, we can provide you with the most current advice on your cat’s health care, including which vaccines fit your cat’s lifestyle. We believe each patient is an individual and tailor vaccine plans to your pet. Our veterinary professionals work with you to come up with a vaccine program that works for you.
Does my indoor cat need to be vaccinated?
Does your indoor pet occasionally spend time on the deck, in the yard, or on a leash? Ask your veterinarian which vaccines would be best suited for your cat’s lifestyle.
What are FVRCP and core vaccines for cats?
FVRCP (Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia) and Rabies are core vaccines. The only optional vaccine for cats is Leukemia.
How often does my adult cat need to be vaccinated?
Based on individual lifestyle needs, your vet can help you determine a vaccine schedule.
Are there any risks associated with cat vaccines?
We take pride in choosing vaccines based on efficacy and safety. However, there is always a small chance for an adverse reaction to vaccines. Mild reactions could be localized swelling at the site of injection, vomiting, pain and fever. If any reactions occur, always call us ASAP.
