Vaccinations for Cats

Why Vaccinate:

Vaccinations are important to help maintain your cat's good health and protect against preventable life-threatening diseases.

When do we Vaccinate:

Vaccinations begin as a kitten at 6-8 weeks of age, with boosters at 10-12 weeks and 14-16 weeks of age.

An annual vaccination and health check for life is then recommended.

What do we Vaccinate for:

There are several different vaccination protocols available for your cat and we tailor the vaccine to your cat's needs.

The vaccination we routinely give for cats is called Fel-O-Vax 4 and is a 4-in-1 and vaccinates against

  • Feline Enteritis - a viral disease that causes vomiting and diarrhoea and is often fatal.
  • Cat flu (Herpesvirus, Calicivirus and Chlamydia) - a group of upper respiratory viral and bacterial diseases that can progress to pneumonia and cause other serious illness. 

Vaccinations against:

  • Feline Aids - a fatal virus contagious amongst cats from fighting and cat bites that impacts the immune system.
  • Feline Leukaemia - a deadly virus that impacts the immune system and causes debilitating diseases including various types of cancer.

are also available and are particularly important for cats spending time outdoors.
