What vaccinations do cats?

A cat requires not only care, but also attention to its health. Vaccinations made in a timely manner will help. Vaccinations will be done in any veterinary clique. In this article we’ll dwell on when and what vaccinations to cats.

Necessary vaccinations

Veterinarians are advised to vaccinate against the following common diseases:

  • plague;
  • rabies;
  • calcivirosis;
  • herpes virus;
  • chlamydia;
  • leukemia.

All these infectious diseases are the most dangerous for cats. Cats tolerate them heavily, and the likelihood of death is not excluded.

Vaccination is best when the kitten has not yet reached the age of two months - ideally at 9-12 weeks. This period is the most optimal. It is proved that by the third month of life kittens lose their immunity, which they had before and acted as a defense against diseases. In this case, the first vaccination is best carried out at home. After 5-6 months, a second vaccination will be required, a third vaccination is needed per year.After that, you will need to be vaccinated every 11-12 months.

Vaccination preparation

It is very important to follow the basic rules for preparing for vaccination:

  • 10-12 days before vaccination it is necessary to give anthelmintic drugs;
  • 2 weeks to carry out the treatment of cats from fleas and flares.

Only a completely healthy animal can be vaccinated. You can not do it for lactating and pregnant cats who have undergone surgery and are in the rehabilitation period. In the first days after vaccination, it is necessary to isolate the animal from other pets.
