Routine vaccination provides protection against four life threatening diseases which may be contracted from the environment or unprotected cats. We use Versifel CVR and Leukocell 2 to protect against:
+ Panleucopania (feline infectious enteritis)
+ Rhinotracheitis (feline herpesvirus)
+ Feline Calcivirus (cat flu)
Once kittens have had their initial vaccination course between 9 and 12 weeks, it is really important for them to have an annual booster vaccination. This is vital to maintain their immunity especially as they age and their immunity weakens, as older cats can still succumb to these fatal diseases. At White Lodge Vets a full health check is undertaken at every vaccination appointment. This is always a good opportunity for us to examine your pet for any problems that you may or may not be aware of. Prevention is better than cure, so early diagnosis of a condition gives your pet the best chance of a successful outcome.
All kittens should be vaccinated and need yearly boosters throughout their life, these diseases are still around and can be fatal. No reputable boarding establishment will take your cat if their vaccinations have lapsed. Adult and elderly cats still need boosters and extra vaccinations are needed for travelling.
