Healthy Pet Checks
The lifespan of a cat is shorter than that of a human, and as such a lot can change in a year. If you are not vaccinating, we still advise an annual health check of your cats after they reach 8 years old (or 6 years old if purebred) to ensure your pet is as healthy as possible.
We follow the World’s Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) Guideline and recommend the following and flow chart below:
8 – 9 week: Full vaccine
12 week: Full vaccine
16 week: Full vaccine
6 months-12 months: Full vaccine. This can be done at the post op check following neutering.
After the 6-12 month vaccine, we recommend vaccines every year for higher risk cats, and three yearly for indoor only cats.
Vaccination against FeLV (Feline Leukaemia Virus) can also be offered for higher risk cats.
Cats that are classified as higher risk are those who have element of outdoor lifestyle, and/or live in a multi-cat household, and/or those who frequent cattery.
Adult cats with no vaccine history should have an initial vaccination course of two vaccinations.
