In addition to providing your cat with food, water and affection, it is important to make sure your feline companion is up to date with all the current cat vaccinations to ensure a long and happy life. Cats are susceptible to various life-threatening diseases that can be easily prevented with the proper cat vaccines. At College Way Animal Hospital, we offer multiple cat vaccinations that, with the help of regular heartworm testing and prevention, will ensure your cat's nine lives are as long, healthy and active as possible. Read more about the specific cat vaccines we offer at College way. below.
College Way's FVRCP cat vaccine is our “feline distemper” vaccination that protects against feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici virus and panleukopenia. These diseases are highly contagious among cats and can have devastating effects on their respiratory and gastrointestinal systems. Our feline patients should receive this cat shot when they are kittens starting at six weeks of age. This cat vaccination should be given every three weeks until the kitten is 16 weeks old, as it will confidently ensure there is not any maternal antibody competition. After these initial immunizations, we administer this cat vaccination yearly for optimum disease protection.
