Vaccinations for Kittens and Cats

Vaccinations protect your pet against diseases that can be extremely detrimental to their health. Treatment for some of these potentially harmful diseases are far more expensive than vaccinations. They are a great preventative health tool for all pets, even those who spend most of their time indoors.

What’s the difference between core and non-core vaccines?

Core vaccines are those that we recommend for all pets, while non-core are specific to your pet’s individual needs. For example, your pet might be at a higher risk for diseases like chlamydia, which we’ll recommend a non-core vaccination to protect them against. Vaccinations help build your pet’s immunity against a disease by providing them with full protection or minimize the symptoms associated with it. We’d like to create a personalized vaccination plan to support your pet’s unique needs. To discuss your pet’s plan, please contact us at 416.941.8920.

What core vaccines do you recommend?

Regardless of whether your feline friend only stays indoor or enjoys roaming outside, we recommend these core vaccines for them:

  • Feline panleukopenia (FPV)
  • Feline calicivirus (FCV)
  • Feline leukemia (FeLV)
  • Feline herpesvirus-1 (FHV-1)
  • Rabies

    Non-core vaccines?

    Our veterinary team will discuss your pet’s likelihood of contracting certain risk-based diseases, before recommending these non-core vaccines. Some of these include protection against:

  • Chlamydia
  • Bordetella
