Cat Vaccinations at Eastcott Vets

Vaccinations for Cats & Kittens

Cat vaccinations are vital to keep our feline friends healthy and helps protect and prevent them from contracting infectious diseases and health conditions. Cat vaccinations are especially vital for kittens, and it is highly recommended to book the required vaccinations for your kittens early on in their life of you owning them.

 

Cat Vaccinations - how they work

The type of vaccines Eastcott Vets recommend will be based on your cat's lifestyle, risk factors and current guidance. Modern vaccines give protection to multiple diseases with just one or two injections.

The vaccines for cat vaccinations contain harmless (either weakened or dead) variants of viruses and other infectious agents. When a cat is vaccinated, the immune system responds by generating a protective mechanism by forming antibodies. If your cat becomes exposed to the actual disease later, those antibodies will prevent the disease from developing further.

 

Booster Vaccinations for Cats

Cat vaccinations don't give lifelong immunity from diseases, so regular cat booster vaccinations are recommended. If your dog is registered with us, we can send your reminders for when they are due, helping you to stay on top of your dog's healthcare. It is also a good opportunity for your dog to have a full health check at the same time.

 

Diseases that Cat Vaccinations protect against

  • Cat flu (feline herpes virus and feline calicivirus)
  • Feline infectious enteritis
  • Feline leukaemia virus
  • Cat Flu
  • Feline Chlamydophila

Eastcott Vets can advise which vaccinations your cat or kitten will need to help protect them from infectious diseases.

 

Kitten Vaccinations information

Kittens should be kept inside until they are fully vaccinated. They require two sets of introductory vaccinations to begin with - at nine weeks old, then a second set to boost their immune systems at three months old. After this, all cats require 'booster' vaccinations every 12 months. 

Like all pets, cats are susceptible to many life-threatening diseases, but with advancements in veterinary healthcare have dramatically reduced the number of cases. Due to this reduction and by way of them not being highly reported, it is easy to assume that they are no longer a threat to cats, but they still do remain a constant danger, meaning the having the correct and properly timed cat vaccinations is the best way to keep your cat safe.
