How to keep your cat healthy.

How to keep your cat healthy.

A healthy cat is a happy cat, so take the following steps to vaccinate yours to ensure it always stays that way:

  • Rabies: 4 weeks old – The rabies vaccine usually requires boosters every 1-3 years, depending on the type of vaccine used.
  • Panleukopenia virus (distemper): 8 weeks old.
  • Feline calicvirus (FCV): 8 weeks old.
  • Feline herpes virus (rhinotracheitis): 8 weeks old.

If considered at-risk, the following three require annual booster shots for a few years thereafter — cats will only need vaccinations every 3 years after the initial series:

  • Feline chlamydiosis.
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus (feline AIDS or FIV).
  • Feline Leukemia (FeLV).
