FELINE VACCINATION AMNESTY
Why are boosters required?
Over time protection falls and their immunity levels need ‘topping up’ on a yearly basis by a booster vaccination. They also receive a full health check at their annual booster appointment which ensures they are fit and healthy. It is a common misconception that once your pet has had their initial vaccines they will be covered for life and regular boosters are unnecessary.
Unfortunately unvaccinated cats, even if they only live indoors, are highly susceptible to pathogens that live within our environment. These viral pathogens can be transmitted via the bottom of shoes, human hands and many other surfaces that come into contact with the outside world.
So what is the feline vaccination amnesty?
If your cat is not up to date with their annual vaccination* then they will require a full vaccine course of two injections, which are given 4 weeks apart, to once again build up their immunity.
