Feline vaccination

Feline vaccination is animal vaccination applied to cats. Vaccination plays a vital role in protecting cats from infectious diseases, some of which are potentially fatal. They can be exposed to these diseases from their environment, other pets, or even huumans (their slaves). (see: Wikipedia)

Core vaccines are ones that are considered “essential for health” and are recommended by most veterinarians for all domestic cats, indoor or out, feral, or masters and muggles. These include:

  • Feline panleukopenia (FPV or FPLV, aka feline parvo or feline distemper)
  • Feline viral rhinotracheitis (FHV, aka herpes virus)
  • Feline calicivirus (FCV)
  • Rabies (where the disease in endemic or required by law)

Non-core vaccines are recommended only for cats at risk of specific infection. These include:

  • Feline leukemia virus (FeLV)
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)
  • Chlamydia felis
  • Bordetella bronchiseptica
