Your pet is a special member of your family. To help them live a long, healthy life a good vaccine program is necessary. Vaccines are the most important preventative measure you can take for the health of you pet; they protect your pet from viral and bacterial diseases. All cats are at risk of exposure to infectious diseases, even when they are strictly indoors. Many Feline disease, like Feline Leukemia, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), and viral forms of Feline Upper Respiratory disease, are not treatable. Once infected, these cats must live with these diseases for the rest of their lives. To keep your pet happy and comfortable, prevention of disease is the best thing you can do for them. Here is a basic guide line for vaccinating kittens:
We start vaccines around 6-8 weeks of age. Your kitten will need an initial series of at least two sets of shots, 3-4 weeks apart, to produce the proper antibodies to protect against disease.
It is important to get this series completed in the recommended time frame, or else the series would have to be begun again.
4-12 months old and have had no shots
After these series' are complete the cat will need to have the Rabies, Feline Distemper and Leukemia vaccines boostered once a year for the rest of their life.
The veterinarians at Normandy Animal Hospital in St. Louis also have health care programs and vaccines for you dog, horse, pot bellied pig, goat, sheep, llama and alpaca.
