Scheduled Vaccinations Are Important to Your Pet’s Health
Vaccines have come under close scrutiny because of their perceived side effects. However, the value of these immunizations is undeniable, providing protection against diseases that can threaten their health and may even cause death. A regular vaccine schedule ensures that your pet does not pick up common bacteria and viruses from common methods of transmission, such as from contact with other animals, from pet dishes or from toys.
Kittens are also given vaccinations a few weeks apart until the age of 7 months. Core vaccines include those against panleukopenia, feline calicivirus, and rhinotracheitis. Rabies vaccine is given at 4 months or older. Even if your cat stays indoors most of the time, he or she can pick up a virus from brief contact with another animal when out of the house.
- Rabies Vaccine – Protects against rabies and is required by the state.
- Distemper Vaccine – (PRC) – Prevents the following viruses: Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, and Panleukopenia.
- Leukemia Vaccine – Protects against leukemia virus, recommended for outdoor cats.
Special Vaccines to Protect Your Pet
Pets that are boarding or go to daycare may also need the Bordetella vaccine. In addition, your vet may recommend vaccination against Borrelia burgdorferi, leptospirosis and feline immunodeficiency virus, if an outbreak has occurred in your area.
