Cat Vaccinations

Vaccinations are an important part of helping your cat live a happy and healthy life. During your cat’s annual wellness exam we will assess your cat’s health and lifestyle to determine the appropriate vaccine protocol.

Does my indoor cat need to be vaccinated?

Indoor cats should be kept up to date on vaccinations. Indoor cats can still be at risk if they happen to escape outside or by animals entering your home that you may not have control over such as bats or mice. Your indoor cat should also be kept up to date on their rabies vaccine. There have been several confirmed cases of rabies in the Saskatoon area some of which have caused indoor cats to be exposed.

What is FVRCP and core vaccine for cats?

This is the core vaccine that is given to all cats. It protects against three diseases for cats; Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calici Virus and Panleukopenia. This vaccine is safe and very effective. We also offer vaccination against Feline Leukemia. This vaccine is recommended for cats who go outside.

How often does my adult cat need vaccination?

Adult cats need to be given vaccine boosters to ensure complete immunity. Booster vaccinations are typically given on a yearly basis.

Are there any risks associated with vaccines?

When given correctly vaccines are safe and effective for your cat. Some cats can experience lethargy and inappetence for a day or two following vaccination. Serious side effects are very rare. Please contact us if you are concerned that your cat is experiencing a reaction.
