Feline vaccines

Just like us, cats need to get vaccinated in order to stay protected from contracting certain illnesses. Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to protect ourselves against serious diseases.

There is a feline vaccination schedule intended to provide cats with a suitable protection against illnesses that may be lurking at any point in their lives. It’s important to follow it “to a T” in order to ensure maximum efficacy and immunisation against viral threats that can be quite serious. If you do not follow the dates, vaccines can lose their protective effect.

You should consult your veterinarian to be clear on the vaccination schedule (dates can vary, depending on each particular case), especially in the first administrations and if they recommend any additional type of vaccine, apart from the standard ones.

When to get your cat vaccinated

You should take your cat to get a vaccine once they are two to three weeks old. That way you can prevent the vaccine’s effects from overlapping with antibodies from the breast milk, in which case both the vaccine and the mother’s antibodies can be inhibited.

  • Week 4-5: Deworming and defleaing.
  • Week 9: Trivalent.
  • Week 11: Blood tests for leukemia and immunodeficiency. If negative, they get a leukemia vaccine.
  • Week 13: Trivalent vaccine and leukemia, simultaneously.
