We administer cat vaccines to felines.
A vaccine is a type of medical product that can cause a response in the immune system, triggering the body to produce antibodies in response to the presence of disease-causing organisms. Vaccinations are given via injection and can be administered to both humans and animals. Over the past century, dog and cat vaccinations have increased drastically in their usage, resulting in the elimination, containment, and management of a number of concerning diseases and ailments. Cat vaccinations are just as important as human vaccinations, as keeping up with a regular and recommended vaccination schedule can protect your feline’s health and prevent worrisome and even fatal diseases.
Some of the most important cat vaccinations include those that treat rabies, feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia (FVRCP), feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukemia. Other vaccines administered to cats when necessary include feline herpesvirus type I, Bordetella, and Chlamydophila felis. Cat owners may mistakenly believe that indoor cats do not need to receive regular vaccines, but that is not the case. If your cat never goes outside, they may not need every available vaccine, but they should be vaccinated against certain diseases on a regular schedule. Cats that go in for boarding or grooming must be vaccinated and their owners must show proof of these vaccinations in most cases.
At Plaza Veterinary Hospital, we administer cat vaccines to felines. Our team of veterinary specialists will create a customized vaccine schedule based on the needs and lifestyle of your cat. We’ll also provide friendly, caring, and comfortable treatment to your cat throughout the entire care process.
