Cat Vaccinations

Core cat vaccinations are important for all cats.

Core Vaccinations for Cats

FVRCP-Feline Distemper, Rhinotracheitis, and Calicivirus (Felocell by Zoetis) This yearly vaccine protects your cat from many common viruses that they are exposed to all of their life.  This vaccine contains the following: Feline Distemper, Rhinotracheitis and Calicivirus.  All three viruses can be brought into your home as a result of contact with contaminated enviroments.  A yearly vaccine can help insure that your pet will not become ill and require extensive and expensive treatments.

 

Feline Rabies (PureVax® Feline Rabies by Merial, 1-year vaccine) Rabies is 100% fatal in both humans and animals if contracted.  Since there is no cure, prevention by vaccination is the only solution.  Vaccination is extremely important AND required by law, as humans can transmit Rabies easily, too.  This is always a yearly vaccine in cats.  Shelley Drive Animal Clinic chooses to use a 1-year vaccine for Feline Rabies.  This vaccine is designed specifically for cats and kittens with no use of adjuvants.  An adjuvant is a substance that is added to a vaccine to enhance the body’s immune response to the vaccine.  Adjuvants have been associated with injection site reaction, injection site granuloma, injection site sarcoma (malignant cancer) and chronic inflammation in cats.

 

Non-core vaccinations are important for outdoor cats.

Non-Core Vaccinations for Cats

Feline Leukemia (PureVax® Recombinant FelV by Merial) This vaccine protects cats form the number one cat virus.  While it is more common in outdoor cats, it is often seen in indoor cats – especially if adopted from a shelter/rescue, found or purchased from a cattery.  Your cat is considered “at risk” for leukemia if he or she spends any time outdoors and/or is exposed to cats that may be infected.  Periodic boosters comprise the best prevention program.  Shelley Drive Animal Clinic chooses to use a yearly vaccine for Feline Leukemia that is adjuvant free. An adjuvant is a substance that is added to a vaccine to enhance the body’s immune response to the vaccine.  Adjuvants have been associated with injection site reaction, injection site granuloma, injection site                                                                             sarcoma (malignant cancer) and chronic inflammation in cats.
