We may see our feline friends as aloof and independent but sometimes that’s their way of telling that something is wrong. As a good fur paper, we know that prevention is always better than cure which is why cat vaccinations are essential. Not only does it prevent your cat from diseases caused by viruses and bacteria but it also helps strengthen their immune system.
Here’s a list of vaccinations that are essential for your cat’s health:
Or Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia Vaccine. It gives immunity for against airborne diseases specifically herpes virus (Rhinotracheitis), distemper virus (Panleukopenia), and another respiratory disease that may lead to pneumonia (Calicivirus)
Rabies on cats may be rare but its main reason is to reduce the chances of getting a vaccine-associated fibrosarcoma, a type of cancer.
Feline Leukemia Vaccine prevents your cat from getting retroviruses like anemia and lymphoma. Without this vaccine, the virus can be transmitted from an infected cat to another cat through saliva, blood, and to some extent, urine and feces.
Or Feline Infectious Peritonitis. An FIP vaccine protects your cat from catching a viral disease called Feline Coronavirus (FCoV), which tends to attack the cells of the intestinal walls without showing any physical symptoms.
Vaccinating your cats can be tedious at times, but knowing that they are healthy and well, is always worth the shot.
