Kittens

Kittens can be vaccinated from 9 weeks onwards. Cats require two inoculations 3 weeks apart, which will provide immunity against Cat flu, enteritis and Feline Leukaemia. Your cat will not be fully protected until 2 weeks after their 2nd inoculation. Feline leukaemia virus is spread by sexual contact or fighting so indoor cats do not require this vaccine. Booster vaccinations are required annually to maintain lifelong immunity.

Cats

The primary vaccination course for kittens consists of two injections. As with puppies, kittens will have some protection from their mothers in their bloodstream, which is why a second injection of the vaccine is required to complete immunisation.

Kitten vaccinations start from 8 weeks of age, with the second vaccine administered three weeks after the first. A certificate of vaccination will be provided at the second vaccination appointment.
It is important for annual boosters to be taken to make sure immunity remains effective.

Here at Hawick Veterinary Practice we can vaccinate your cat against the following diseases:

  • Cat Flu
  • Feline Enteritis

  • Feline Chlamydophila

We can talk you through any type of vaccination that may be required for your cat.
