VACCINATIONS

The FVCRP-C and the Feline Leukemia vaccine are the only two vaccines that we administer. For cats that live strictly indoor with no contact with other outdoor cats we only recommend the FVRCP-C vaccine. This vaccine protects cats from Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calici Virus, Paneleukapenia, and Chlamydia. We recommend a first kitten FVRCP-C vaccine be given at 8 weeks old with a booster vaccine be given 3 to 4 weeks after. We then boost the FVRCP-C in 1 year, and repeat the vaccine every 3 years from that point on.

For cats that spend any time outside, we recommend the Feline Leukemia vaccine be started at 10 weeks old. The frequency of the vaccine is the same as the FVRCP-C vaccine. Feline Leukemia can only be contracted from contact with an affected cat, so we do not recommend this vaccine for indoor cats.

While FIV is an outdoor cat concern, we do not vaccinate for this. There is no evidence that the FIV vaccine works, and it causes the FIV/Felv test to present false positives. Therefore, we recommend testing for FIV/Felv annually to be sure your cat does not contract either of these viruses.
