Vaccinations are an important part of your pet’s healthcare from a very young age. Whether you have a new kitten, or an adult cat, keeping on top of their vaccines is vital to protecting them against disease and infection.
At Peak Vets in Sheffield, we are able to provide kitten & cat vaccinations. Your kitten receives their first vaccines from 8 weeks old; we then emphasise to all feline owners that they ensure that their cats get their annual boosters year after year once registered with us. Keep your cat safe throughout their life!
Why Does My Kitten or Cat Need Vaccines?
Kittens and Cats, much like humans, are susceptible to contracting harmful infections and diseases from the environment around them. It is therefore important to get them vaccinated from 8 weeks of age. Kittens will naturally have protection from their mothers, but a second vaccination ensures their annual protection once this natural protection wears off.
It is then important to give your cat an annual booster vaccination to keep them protected, and able to live a happy and healthy life.
Vaccinations can protect kittens and cats against:
- Feline Enteritis
- Feline Chlamydophila
- Feline Leukaemia Virus
- Cat Flu
If you have an indoor cat, this does not mean you should avoid vaccinations; they are just as important for indoor cats.
How Often Does My Cat Need A Vaccination?
From 8 weeks old, your kitten can have their first vaccination, followed by a second booster three weeks later. It is then important to keep up with your cats’ vaccinations every year.
Deciding against vaccinations for your cat increases their risk of contracting a harmful disease or infection.
Our Cat Pet Health for Life plans are available from just £17 per month. These have been designed to spread the cost of your cat’s healthcare throughout the year, whilst ensuring they get everything they need to live a healthy, happy life. Vaccinations are included in Pet Health for Life plans. Find out more today or sign your pet up online.
