VIP Petcare has compiled the most important vaccinations for your cat into affordable and convenient packages. Protection should start early for kittens and boosters should be given annually for adult cats. Our veterinarians will work with you to get your pet exactly the health care he or she needs.
Here is a basic rundown of how vaccination packages work for cats at VIP Petcare:
• For kittens 8 weeks of age we recommend Kitten Pack 1.
This package contains the important 3-in-1 vaccine (FVRCP), a roundworm/hookworm dewormer and a fecal test.
• For kittens 12 weeks of age we recommend Kitten Pack 2.
This package includes a booster for the 3-in-1 (FVRCP), adds a feline leukemia vaccine and has another round of deworming. The booster means that it keeps the immunities going.
• For Kittens 16 weeks of age will then move on to Kitten Pack 3.
Here they will receive the same vaccines as in Kitten Pack 2, with the addition of the PureVax rabies vaccine.
Please note we recommend you always discuss your pet’s lifestyle with a veterinary professional before deciding on the appropriate care for your kitten.
If by the end of the kitten series your kitten has received sufficient boosters, then future vaccinations should take place annually, or as recommended by your veterinarian.
• Finally, we have the Adult Cat Pack, which contains the vaccines and testing necessary to ensure your cat keeps adequate antibodies to fight off common diseases. If you have a cat that goes outdoors we recommend adding the feline leukemia (FeLV) vaccine to this package as well.
