Vaccinations for Cats
If you’re adopting, purchasing or bringing a new cat of any kind home, make sure you ask the previous owners for a health history. You will need to know if your cat has received any kind of vaccinations and whether or not new vaccinations or continued vaccinations are needed. Kittens will need a series of core vaccines as recommended by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty for Animals and most veterinarians. Those core vaccinations include vaccines that will protect your cat from distemper, feline calici virus, feline herpes virus type I, and rabies. Additional vaccines may be needed depending on where you live and whether or not you and your cat will be traveling out of the country. Your cat’s lifestyle may also play a role as cats who will be boarded require a Bordetella vaccine while cats that stay at home do not. Consult with your Crown Point, IN veterinarian to learn more.
