Vaccines protect your pet from potentially fatal infectious diseases. Vaccines against dangerous diseases have saved millions of pets and nearly eliminated some fatal diseases that were once widespread. Unfortunately, many infectious diseases continue to pose a significant threat to unvaccinated cats.
We recognize that your pet is unique and that no single vaccine program will be ideal for every pet in every circumstance. Forest Hills Cat Hospital’s staff is knowledgeable about veterinary vaccines, and our goal is to provide you with the best advice for keeping your pet healthy.
There are numerous vaccines available for use in dogs and cats, but not every pet requires every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be given to all pets, whereas others are optional and may be given to pets based on a variety of factors, such as their risk of disease exposure. Vaccine recommendations may also change over the course of a pet’s life as travel habits and other factors change. All of these factors will be taken into account when determining which vaccines your pet should receive.
Panleukopenia (feline distemper), feline herpesvirus type I, feline calicivirus, and rabies are the most important vaccines for cats. They shield your cat from serious health problems. Depending on your cat’s lifestyle, you may also want to get her vaccinated against the feline leukemia virus. During your feline’s visit, we’ll talk about his or her lifestyle and decide which vaccines he or she needs.
