The Importance of Vaccinations

A look at what routine vaccinations and boosters cover, and why they’re so important for the welfare of our pets…

Vaccinating your pets helps to keep them safe from a number of diseases and infections – some of which can be fatal.

To stay safe cats need a primary vaccination course from 9 weeks of age, followed by booster injections every year.

Let’s take a look at what we routinely vaccinate against…

Cat Flu – Cat Flu is caused by Feline Herpesvirus (FHV) and Feline Calicivirus (FCV).

Feline Enteritis – A highly contagious disease that’s often fatal. Feline Enteritis causes severe vomiting and diarrhoea.

Feline Leukaemia – Attacks the cat’s immune system and leaves them at risk of infection and illness.

If you're concerned about your cat's vaccinations, or have any questions about the importance of vaccines, don't hesitate to contact us today!
