When should I get my kitten/cat vaccinated?
We recommend that healthy adult cats visit us once a year. Kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues need more frequent checkups. Typically, kittens should get their first vaccines from about 6 to 8-weeks-old, until they are 4-months-old. It’s important not to let your pet play outside before their first vaccines. Adult cats should receive their booster shots once every 1 to 3 years, depending on their lifestyle, environment, and health needs.
What vaccines will you give my pet?
We recommend scheduling your kitten for their first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, they are susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will vaccinate your new pet against rabies and panleukopenia (distemper). Depending on your cat’s risk, we may also advise vaccinating them against diseases such as feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). We also recommend getting your kitten tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young cats.
