Unfortunately, cats do not have nine lives. As such, it’s our job to protect them. The best way to do this is by vaccination. Shots help to protect your feline from different diseases caused by bacteria and viruses. Whether you have an adult cat or kitten, your veterinarian will be able to help you find out what shots your pet needs. These usually depend on the age, lifestyle, and overall health of your cat.
Twin Peaks Veterinary Center provides all types of vaccinations, both core and elective. If your cat needs a vaccine or if you have questions, please schedule an appointment with us today.
When Is It Necessary to Vaccinate Your Feline?
Kittens should start getting their vaccines around the age of 6 weeks and on until they are about 16 weeks old. Shots come in a series every 3-4 weeks. Adult cats do not need vaccines this often. In most cases, once a year or every 3 years, depending on how long the vaccine lasts, is sufficient for adult cats.
