The importance of vaccinations to the overall health and longevity of your cat cannot be overstated. Vaccines are medically and scientifically proven to combat the incubation and transmission of crippling and fatal cat diseases. Our veterinary staff is dedicated to educating people about the importance of cat vaccinations, including what cat vaccines are necessary, and when they should be scheduled.
It is important to note that our doctors don't follow a "one size fits all" protocol for immunizations, but treat each cat as an individual and recommend the best possible protocol considering their risk factors such as age, overall health, and lifestyle. According to the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recommendations, we only administer non-adjuvanted cat vaccinations, as available, so that we can minimize any risk of vaccine-induced sarcomas.
Please consult with one of our veterinarians during your next visit for specific information regarding kitten vaccinations or cat vaccinations where your cat is concerned. These will be based on your cat's lifestyle, disease exposure risk and overall health status.
As with any other immunization protocol, a cat vaccination schedule should be adhered to without deviation, in order to ensure your cat remains healthy and well for the duration of his or her life. We cannot control all health issues, but we can prevent the majority of infectious diseases with the proper vaccine schedule.
Getting your cat on a regular vaccination schedule will put your favorite furry cat on the path to a happy and healthy life, so contact one of our veterinarians to get scheduled.
