Cat Vaccinations

Why Vaccination is Important?

Every year many cats of all ages become seriously ill or die from infectious diseases which could have been prevented through vaccination.

Vaccines are routinely used for three major diseases:

  • Feline Leukaemia virus
  • Infectious Enteritis
  • Cat “Flu”

All unvaccinated cats are at risk since there is no specific treatment for viral diseases.

How Vaccines Work

Vaccines stimulate the body’s defense system to produce protective antibodies and cells in the blood. These protect against specific diseases. This protection is called immunity. Unfortunately this does not last for life and booster vaccinations are required to maintain the immunity produced by the initial course of vaccinations.

Feline Leukaemia Virus (Felv)

  • Of all the infectious agents that affect cats, this virus is the single most important cause of mortality.
  • Your cat can become infected through contact with an infected cat. Those infected by FELv may show no symptoms for months or years.
  • Most cats die within three years of becoming persistently infected.
  • Felv Kills cats in a variety of ways including causing cancer or anaemia or destroying the immune system allowing other infections to develop.
  • Vaccination and regular boosters will protect your cat from the virus.
