We believe vaccination is amongst the most important things we do. A high percentage of a population has to be immune to a disease before that disease dies out. It is for this reason we are so keen on vaccination and keeping boosters up-to-date.
Another good reason for booster vaccination is that every year your pet gets a health check at which time you can bring up any worries or concerns you have, early diagnosis of trouble can be made and treatment initiated before things go too far.
The best vaccine covers against two types of Cat Flu, a nasty type of enteritis called Feline Infectious Enteritis (FIE) and Leukaemia (An increasingly common and fundamentally serious virus disease of cats)
Two injections are required 3-4 weeks apart.
The earliest age to start vaccination is 9 weeks.
A lesser vaccine is available which covers the two types of flu and the FIE . Again two injections are required.
Adult cats if not previously vaccinated should receive the two shots 3-4 weeks apart.
Yearly boosting is recommended.
