Overview

We believe that preventative care is fundamental to maintaining your pet’s well-being and longevity. Proper vaccination is an important component of protecting your cat from many viral diseases to which she is otherwise susceptible.

Why are vaccinations important?

Vaccinations are vital to the health and protection of your pet, and serve as a preventive measure to combating viral diseases like Parvovirus, Parainfluenza virus, Distemper, Lyme, Panleukopenia, Feline Leukemia Virus, and Rabies.

When should my pet get vaccinated?

Vaccinations are particularly important for kittens that still have immature immune systems. We typically begin immunizing when your friend is 6-8 weeks of age and booster those injections throughout your cat’s life.  Our veterinarians will develop a vaccination schedule customized to your cat’s lifestyle.

How are vaccines administered?

Vaccines help to combat diseases by exposing the pet's immune system to inactive or small amounts of a particular form of bacteria or virus. Vaccinations are accompanied by a consultation and examination with our veterinarians to make certain that your pet's condition is stable enough to receive them. Proper and timely administration is necessary to ensure optimal protection.
