Are cat vaccinations necessary?
Cat vaccinations are essential, they provide your cat with adequate protection from life threatening diseases. Even indoor cats will still require cat vaccinations, but this may be a reduced course that only includes cat flu and enteritis, but many cat owners will choose to have the full set of cat vaccinations each year, just as a precaution in case their cat was to venture off exploring in the outside world.
What will happen if I do not have my cat vaccinated?
Deciding not to vaccinate runs the risk of your cat contracting harmful diseases. If you go away and must leave your cat in a cattery or boarding facility, most sites will require up to date vaccination and will not accept unvaccinated animals as it could put the other animals that are boarding with them at risk.
Should you still vaccinate an older cat?
If your cat is fit and healthy, we would always recommend vaccinations for your cat. Cat vaccinations will protect your cat and help them lead a long and happy life.
Would a vet be able to tell if a cat has been vaccinated?
Physically there is no way to tell if a cat has been vaccinated, however if your cat has a vaccination card, previous vet records or microchip details, our team here at Peak vets will be able to investigate your cat’s history.
