Recommended Schedule for Feline Vaccinations With An Antioch Veterinarian

You’ll want to get a cat vaccination schedule in line as soon as possible. This will protect your cat and your neighborhood from infectious diseases. All cats at 6 to 7 weeks get a combination vaccination that covers the core cat vaccinations. Then at 10, 12, 13, 16, and 19 weeks your cat will need to get additional vaccines. This is the typical schedule for healthy house cats. If your cat lives outdoors, with multiple other cats, or is a rescue you might need additional vaccinations depending on the cat’s needs. If your cat has already received some vaccines we need to have a copy of their immunization record on file. This ensures we will not skip any vaccines on their schedule. 

What are the Core Vaccinations for Cats?

As a cat owner you want your kitty to live a happy, healthy life. Getting regular pet vaccinations in Nashville is a great starting point. Before you rush out and get any vaccines consider the vaccination recommendations for cats:

  • Panleukopenia aka distemper

  • Feline viral rhinotracheitis to prevent herpes virus from causing heart or lung infections

  • Feline calicivirus also used to prevent upper respiratory infections

  • Rabies

Each of these three vaccines for cats should be administered every three years. However, if you are living in a neighborhood or region where these infectious conditions are prevalent you may need to vaccinate your cat more frequently. Speak with your Antioch veterinarian here at PetMed for more information.

What are the Noncore Cat Vaccinations I Might Want to Consider for My Pet?

While there are certain vaccines you need to get for your cat, there are some that might also suit your feline. These include:

  • Feline leukemia for cats that are at risk

  • Chlamoydophila is only recommended for cats with this condition as it is used to reduce severity

  • Feline infectious peritonitis is not recommended, but 25 to 40 percent of cats have this condition, as well as up to 95 percent of cats living in multi-cat households

  • Bordetella in particular for kittens
