Vaccinations for Cats

Vaccinations for Cats: What, When, and Why?

Your cat needs vaccinations, even if it is a domestic toy hunter and not a wild beast! Vaccinations are a shield against dangers. The importance of vaccination cannot be underestimated as it protects against dangerous diseases.

Key diseases cats are vaccinated against:

Panleukopenia: This viral disease can be fatal for cats. Symptoms include loss of appetite, high fever, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Calicivirus Infection: A virus that causes respiratory diseases in cats. Symptoms include mouth ulcers, runny nose, and sneezing.

Rhinotracheitis: A herpes virus that causes upper respiratory infections. Symptoms include runny nose, sneezing, and conjunctivitis.

Chlamydia: An infection that often causes conjunctivitis and respiratory symptoms in cats.

Vaccination schedule:

For kittens - the first vaccination at 2 months, then a booster in 3-4 weeks.

For adult cats - annual revaccination to maintain immunity.

Rabies - a special case, vaccinated from 3 months and the protection updated annually.

Preparation for vaccination:

Before vaccination, always conduct a veterinary check-up to avoid complications if your cat is not in shape. The vet will check the overall health of the cat and provide recommendations for further actions.

Vaccinations open the doors to a safe world for your cat - buses, trains, planes, and even cat hotels await vaccinated travelers. Many countries require up-to-date vaccinations for entry with animals, making vaccination an important condition for travel.

Remember, cats have 9 lives, but we are responsible for each of them. Vaccination is an expression of love and care. We wish all furry friends good health and long years of life with you!
