Cat Vaccinations

Vaccinations are a safe and effective way to protect your cat from serious and potentially life-threatening diseases. Cat vaccinations are the most effective form of preventative care for your pet. Luv-N-Care Animal Hospital is a vet in Orlando that can provide your pet with all of the vaccinations that it needs. Our staff is dedicated to providing comprehensive and compassionate care for your feline companion. 


When Should Cats Be Vaccinated?

Cats can start vaccinations as early as six weeks of age. Even if you have an older pet, it's important that your pet receives vaccinations as needed. A veterinarian can help you create a vaccination schedule that's suitable for your pet. 

Core Cat Vaccines

Certain vaccines are recommended for all kittens and cats, regardless of their age, risk factors, and location. These core vaccines are:

  • Feline caliciviral disease 
  • Feline panleukopenia 
  • Feline viral rhinotracheitis 
  • Rabies 

Non-Core Cat Vaccines

Also known as discretionary vaccines, these vaccinations may be recommended for cats with a high risk of exposure:

  • Bordetellosis 
  • Giardiasis
  • Feline leukemia 
  • Feline chlamydiosis
  • Feline infectious peritonitis
  • Ringworm

The Importance of Cat Vaccinations

Vaccines work by introducing a small, safe piece of a disease into a cat's body. This helps to stimulate the cat's immune system. After being vaccinated, your cat's body will produce antibodies and memory cells that will recognize and fight diseases it is exposed to in the future. 

Diseases can quickly spread from one cat to the next, especially in multi-cat environments like shelters and breeding facilities. Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to control the spread of disease throughout a community. There are even diseases like rabies that can be spread from cats to humans. 

Vaccinations play a crucial role in any cat's healthcare routine. When you combine vaccinations with other forms of care, like regular checkups with a veterinarian, you can keep your pet healthy and improve its quality of life. As a pet owner, you should make sure your cat is getting the vaccines that it needs.
