Whether your feline friend is a newborn kitten or a silver-haired cat, they will need vaccinations all their life. These injections protect them against the most common and most harmful diseases that affect their species. It can be overwhelming to keep track of all the vaccines and boosters that your pet needs. Fortunately, we’re here to help! Give us a call at 905-257-3700 to find out more about our vaccination services for kittens and cats.
When should I start vaccinating my kitten?
Although every patient is different, most of them receive their first round of vaccines at around 6 to 8-weeks-old. At this stage, your kitten will need to get boosters every 3 to 4 weeks until they are about 3-months-old.
Do indoor cats need to be vaccinated?
Yes! Even if your feline friend never steps a paw outside your home, or the vet’s office, they still need protection from harmful diseases and parasites. They are still vulnerable from conditions that can be brought inside your home through other objects, people or animals.
Do adult cats still need vaccines?
Yes. Unlike us humans, cats (and other pets) need to be vaccinated all their lives. Your pet will need to be revaccinated once every year or once every 3 years, depending on the specific vaccine. Keep in mind that some vaccines are actually mandated by law, so in order to avoid any unnecessary trouble for you, and preventable illnesses for your pet, it’s important to stay on top of their vaccination schedule.
