Traditionally there are two main cat vaccinations to protect against:
- Cat Flu – Herpes and Feline Calicivirus (FCV).
- Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV).
Cat Flu – Herpes and Feline Calicivirus (FCV)
These are both respiratory infections and when severe can be fatal, so we advise all cat owners to make sure their cat has a vaccination against FCV.
Less commonly, young kittens can be susceptible to feline panleukopenia virus. Protection against this is included as standard in our Nobivac Tricat Vaccines.
Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV)
Feline Leukemia Virus is a fatal blood born virus this is more prevalent in suburban areas. There is generally a reservoir of infection with local wild cats and transmission can often occur during fighting.
Although not as common as the flu we strongly recommend this vaccine as FeLV is a fatal disease.
If you are using a cat or dog home for a short time your pets vaccines will need to be up to date and any reputable cattery or kennel will look for this information.
If you plan to use the cattery at Ark Vetcare please contact us to book early as we tend to be very busy.
