Cat Vaccination

Vaccinating your pet is one of the most important things you can do, as a pet owner, to ensure they lead a healthy life. 

Vaccinations protect against preventable diseases transmissible by other pets in boarding facilities, parks, and even vet hospitals. If your pet has to be hospitalised for any illness, their immune system may already be compromised – vaccinations work to ensure that they are protected in these environments. Vaccinations are also dramatically less expensive than the cost of treatment for the diseases they protect against. 

Our vets will work with you to develop a vaccination schedule that considers your pet’s lifestyle, environment, and general health – to protect them best.

A kitten’s first vaccinations are at 6-8 weeks, 12-14 weeks, 16-18 weeks, and annually beyond that. The last of these kitten vaccinations should be administered at least one week before your cat is allowed outside socialising.

Feline vaccinations are known by the codes F3 and F4 and are administered to protect against:

Enteritis (Feline Panleukopenia): can be very severe, especially in unvaccinated kittens under 12 months. Causes fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, liver failure, and sudden death. 

Feline Calicivirus: part of the cat flu

Chlamydia: a bacterial disease causing conjunctivitis, respiratory disease, infections, arthritis, and even abortion. 

Feline Rhinotracheitis (Feline herpes virus): another part of cat flu that can lead to permanent nasal and sinus infection. 

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV or Feline Aids): you must be vaccinated against if your cat ever goes outside. It is a potentially fatal disease spread between cats via bites, for which there is no treatment or cure.
