Vaccinating is a very effective method to prevent certain communicable diseases in your pet. These diseases are serious threats to unvaccinated kittens and can be life-threatening and expensive to treat. Vaccinating your kitten drastically reduces their risk of contracting these diseases. It also reduces the chance that they will pass these diseases onto other kittens.
When should kittens get their first vaccination?
Kittens generally receive their first vaccination at 8 weeks of age.
How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?
Your kitten will be examined and receive vaccinations at 4-week intervals starting at 8 weeks of age to approximately 16 weeks of age.
Does my kitten only need core vaccines?
Your kitten’s lifestyle will determine the vaccines administered. Our veterinary team will ask about exposure to other cats, travel, access to the outdoors, boarding and grooming.
