Keeping up to date with vaccinations is vital to help keep your pet protected against potentially life threatening diseases. At all our surgeries we offer full health checks and vaccinations.
Why does my cat need vaccinations?
Cats need yearly vaccines to keep them protected against deadly diseases.
These diseases are:
- Cat Flu
- Feline enteritis
- Feline leukaemia
When should I vaccinate my Kitten?
Kittens usually start their vaccination course from 9 weeks of age. The course consists of two vaccines, 3-4 weeks apart. Kittens should not interact with other (unvaccinated) cats, or venture outside, until three weeks after their second vaccination. We advise you keep your kitten inside until they are neutered to avoid any unwanted litters.
The rabies vaccine is needed if travelling abroad with your cat. You will need to have it and a pet passport before leaving the country. The vaccination is repeated every three years if you are continuing to travel. Visit our pet passport page to learn more about going on holiday with your cat.
