Vaccinating your Cat

Which diseases will my cat be protected against?

We use the most up to date and safe vaccination regime against the following four diseases as standard:

  • Cat Flu-Calicivirus
  • Cat Flu-Herpes virus
  • Feline Enteritis
  • Feline Leukaemia Virus

Vaccination Course

The primary course of vaccination involves two injections. They can be started from nine weeks of age, with the second one being given three to four weeks after the first.

Your cat should be fully protected seven days after the second injection and should be isolated until this time.

If necessary we can blood sample your cat for the leukaemia virus before starting the vaccination course. Cats & kittens from an unknown source or those living near a feral cat population are at higher risk of carrying the virus. The vaccination can only prevent your cat becoming infected, so would be ineffective if the virus had already taken hold.

Annual revaccination is essential to maintain your cat’s immunity to disease.

Basic Vaccination Regime

We also offer a more basic vaccination regime if your cat does not require the more comprehensive protection for any reason. This will protect you cat against:

  • Cat Flu-Calicivirus
  • Cat Flu-Herpes virus
  • Feline Enteritis
