Advice on Vaccinating Your Cat 

Treatment of sick and injured cats is obviously a very important part of our work, but we are great believers in preventative medicine. Vaccination plays a major role here.

You will need to take the vaccination certificate to any cattery as proof of vaccination.

Vaccination provides protection against several contagious viruses which can be contracted from the environment or from unprotected cats. Vaccines are available against

  • Feline herpesvirus (cat flu)
  • Feline calicivirus (cat flu)
  • Feline panleukopenia virus (feline infectious enteritis)
  • Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV)
  • Chlamydophila felis
  • Rabies (only needed for Pet Passport scheme)

We see these serious diseases in unvaccinated cats, that could be easily reduced by regular vaccination.

At Kitten to Cat a full health check is undertaken at the time of vaccination. This is always a good opportunity for us to examine your pet for any problems that you may or may not have been aware of. Regular examinations mean early diagnosis of conditions and give your cat a better chance of a successful outcome.

Once kittens have had their initial vaccination course at 9 and 12 weeks, it is important for them to have an annual booster vaccination.
