Kitten Vaccinations

Due to underdeveloped immune systems, our little kitten friends need all the help they can get to fight off harmful and potentially deadly disease. Vaccines are a great way to start a long, healthy life for your kitten.

When should kittens get their first vaccination?

Kittens receive their first vaccinations at 8 weeks of age.

How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?

In total, your kitten will get three sets of boosters. After their kitten vaccinations are completed, the next set of vaccines are not due until one year later. At this time, Rabies and FVRCP are re-administered. As an adult, your cat will get a Rabies vaccine yearly. FVRCP and Feline Leukemia is given every 3 years.

Does my kitten only need core vaccines?

Your kitten’s lifestyle will determine the vaccines protocol that is unique to your cat.
