Vaccinations for Cats
Vaccinations start at 6-8 weeks and are boostered every 3-4 weeks until the Rabies vaccination is given at 14-16 weeks of age.
If there is no vaccine history (such as when finding a stray animal) we will give the Rabies (1 year), FVRCP #1, and FeLV#1 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. For example, if your cat goes by screen doors or windows where they could be in contact with an outdoor cat, you may want to talk to your doctor for their recommendation. This vaccine is given every 3 years after the initial series.
 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.
