Vaccinations for Cats

Vaccinations start at 6-8 weeks and are boostered every 3-4 weeks until the Rabies[1] vaccination is given at 14-16 weeks of age.

Age 6-8 weeks 10-12 weeks 14-16 weeks Adult
Rabies[1] -- -- 1 year 1 year
FVRCP (Distemper) #1 #2 #3 (1 year) 3 years
FeLV (Leukemia) -- #1 #2 (1 year) 3 years

If there is no vaccine history we will give the Rabies[1] (1 year), FVRCP #1, and FeLV#1 (if needed) vaccines on your first visit. The FVRCP and FeLV will be boostered 3-4 weeks later and will be good for one year. Afterward, the adult vaccine schedule will be followed.

The FeLV (Feline Leukemia) vaccine is only needed if your cat goes outside or is in direct contact with other cats that go outside; however, it is safe to give to indoor cats as well.

[1] In accordance with Franklin county law, all dogs and cats are required to be vaccinated against the Rabies virus. Giving the vaccine is considered a medical procedure and only healthy pets should be vaccinated. Because of this, we require a physical exam be done on your pet with a doctor when we give the Rabies vaccine. The physical examination ensures the health of your pet and, therefore, safety in receiving the vaccination.
