Vaccinating your Kitten

Just like dogs, cats also require vaccines to prevent potentially devastating disease that can occur throughout their life.  Vaccination is just as important for kittens who will be indoor only because most of the diseases we vaccinate against are viruses that are very hardy in the environment – meaning they can easily be brought into the household on your shoes or with the dog, for example. Also, if it would ever happen that your kitten or grown cat should escape for an outdoor adventure, they could be exposed. For information on each disease we vaccinate against visit our Vaccination (link to Feline vaccination) section. Below is the general vaccine protocol we recommend for kittens:

 

First vaccines (starting between 6-8 weeks)

  • 3 way vaccine (Feline herpes virus, panleukopenia, and calici virus)
  • Deworming

Second Vaccines (10-12 weeks)

  • 3 way booster
  • Feline Leukemia
  • Deworming

Third Vaccines (14-16 weeks)

  • 3 way booster
  • Feline Leukemia booster
