Kitten and Cat Vaccinations

At Princess Animal Hospital, we care for the wellbeing of kittens and cats. Our team strives for the best immunity to help your pet have a long and healthy life. Vaccines are an easy and inexpensive means of prevention for diseases that are often costly to treat and have serious health effects. Our veterinary team will discuss with you the appropriate vaccines your pet will need based on their lifestyle. Yes, even for indoor cats!

What is an appropriate schedule for kitten vaccinations?

Typically, three sets of vaccines are given at 8, 12 and 16 weeks. It helps ensure that kittens not responding to the initial vaccines do so at the later booster while helping those with poor milk transfer of immunity become protected as early as possible.

What types of vaccinations do you offer for a kitten and adult cat?

FVRCP is an abbreviation for the three main viruses. FVR is Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis (Herpes Virus). C stands for Calicivirus. P for Panleukopenia. In addition to FVRCP and the Rabies vaccine (required by law), immunization for Feline Leukemia is advised for kittens. Not all adult cats will need protection against Feline Leukemia long-term, but lifestyles change for many cats, and some are escape artists!

Depending on your pet’s lifestyle, once a cat reaches two years old and above, the FVRCP combo vaccine can be given intermittently (e.g. every 2-3 years). It is important not to let the vaccine lapse for too long, or the ability to “boost” a previous vaccine becomes quite weak.

Our goal is to assess immunization requirements at each annual exam and provide the needed protection with as few vaccines as possible.

If you have any questions regarding your pet’s vaccine schedule, please give us a call at 613.634.7123.
