Kitten Vaccinations

Vaccinations play a critical role in your kitten’s health by providing protection against infectious diseases. They also ensure your kitten lives a long, healthy and happy life. Kittens have immature immune systems and need vaccines to help build their defense before they contract the virus.

When do kittens get their first shots?

Kittens automatically receive antibodies in the milk their mother produces if their mother has a healthy immune system. When the kitten is around six to eight weeks of age, your veterinarian can begin to administer a series of vaccines at three to four week intervals until the kitten reaches 16 weeks of age.

Does my kitten need only core vaccines?

It depends on your kitten’s lifestyle. If your kitten will be traveling, boarding, going outside then your veterinarian might alter the standard vaccine protocol to better suit your kitten’s needs.

Are there any risk associated with vaccines?

Vaccines should mildly stimulate your cat’s immune system in order to create protection. This stimulation can create mild symptoms, ranging from soreness at the injection site to fever and allergic reactions. Your cat will be thoroughly examined by one of our veterinarians before a vaccine is given. This will allow the doctor to determine whether or not your cat is healthy enough to receive the injection.
