Vaccines are effective in preventing serious diseases in cats. We design a personalized vaccine protocol for each cat, maximizing protection against the diseases your cat is likely to be exposed to. We can vaccinate your cat during their annual or bi-annual wellness exam. We recommend all cats be up to date on core vaccines. Core feline vaccines include:
Rabies is a serious disease, and as of January 2020, cats are required by Illinois law to be vaccinated against Rabies. We use a feline-exclusive rabies vaccine shot which is good for 1 year.
This vaccine helps protect your cat against Rhinotracheitis (herpes virus), Calici virus, and Panleukopenia virus. This vaccine may be written as FVRCP or RCP or HCP. It helps protect your cat against 3 different types of contagious respiratory infections. We recommend this vaccine for all cats. We offer 1-year & 3-year RCP vaccines.
Feline Leukemia Vaccine:
This vaccine helps protects your cat against the feline leukemia virus which can cause anemia, lymphoma, and suppresses the immune system which leaves the cat susceptible to potentially deadly infections. Feline Leukemia is transmitted from cat to cat through saliva, blood, and urine. We recommend this vaccine for cats that go outdoors or live in a multi-cat household where any of the cats go outdoors. We offer 1-year FeLV vaccines.
