Prevention is the best medicine, and that’s the whole theme of August! It’s the time to sit down and make sure your cats’ vaccines are up to date, and breath a sigh of relief knowing how much future worry and illness you’re saving yourself and your cat.
It’s the last day of August’s “Immunization Month” this year – the perfect time for a recap!
Vaccines are specific to each cat based on their specific situations, but here’s a schedule of AVMA recommended general vaccines to guard your cats and kittens.
Kittens needs multiple rounds of vaccinations so they grow up with healthy immune systems and don’t fall ill. It’s generally recommended for adult cats to have a wellness exam at least once a year, and senior cats should be in your vet’s office at least 2 times a year. There are core vaccines that your adult cats should receive during some of these visits, as well as additional preventative vaccines which will differ based on your veterinarian’s recommendations for each individual cat, based their medical history and lifestyle. If you take this CATalyst Connections Health Tracker Form with you, your veterinarian can fill it out so you’ll be able to easily stick to a healthy schedule.
