Cat Vaccinations

Cat lying down - photoVaccination has revolutionised the control of infectious diseases in our pets. It's essential that all pets are adequately vaccinated to help protect them against potentially fatal and highly contagious diseases.

Kitten Vaccinations

Kittens are ‘temporarily’ protected against many diseases by antibodies received through their mother’s milk. These maternal antibodies decline in the first few months of their lives. Until these maternal antibodies are reduced sufficiently, they can also neutralise vaccines. This is why a series of three vaccinations is necessary in a kitten. These are given at 6-8 weeks, 10-12 weeks and 14-16 weeks of age.

Adult Cat Vaccinations

The immunity from kitten vaccination weakens over time and your pet can again become susceptible to disease. Annual health checks and booster vaccinations will provide the best protection for the life of your pet.
