Young animals, just like children, are at risk from many infectious diseases. In many cases there is no treatment for these and young puppies or kittens who catch them often die. Protection against these deadly diseases can be provided by vaccination. To keep your pet fit and healthy make sure they complete an initial course of vaccinations and then receive regular booster jabs.
The most important vaccinations are those given to young animals. In most cases a course of injections is given between the ages of 8 and 12 weeks. ‘Booster’ vaccinations are given at 15 months and then at intervals throughout the cat’s life. First vaccination: 8-9 weeks – cat flu (herpes and calici virus) and enteritis Second vaccination: 12 weeks – cat flu (herpes and calici virus) and enteritis First annual health check and ‘booster’: 15 months – flu and enteritis
