Cat vaccinations are an important part of preventative care for your feline friend. At Chicago Cat Clinic, we recommend a variety of vaccines for our feline patients depending on their lifestyle and risk factors. All of our vaccines are up-to-date and our veterinary staff is highly trained to administer them safely. Please schedule an appointment online through our PetDesk App for your cat’s next vaccination.
Cats are extremely susceptible to infections, just like humans are. Many of them start without any signs and spread quickly to nearby cats. Make sure your companion has the necessary immunizations and is protected from these dangers.
By defending them against harmful bacteria, germs, and viruses, you can maintain the health and strength of your cat’s immune system. Kittens’ undeveloped immune systems are particularly vulnerable and require additional support to fend against pathogens.
Core & More
Rabies Vaccine- Required in all counties of Chicagoland, it is important for both indoor and outdoor cats to receive a rabies vaccine for public health and safety reasons.
Distemper Vaccine- Due to the high communicability of feline distemper disease and the threat it poses to other cats, this vaccination is standard for all kittens.
Panleukopenia Virus- This is a parvoviral infectious disease that is typically characterized by depression, anorexia, high fever, vomiting, diarrhea and severe dehydration.
Feline Calicivirus- A common cause of respiratory disease in cats. This virus attacks the feline’s mouth, nasal passages, lungs, intestines and musculoskeletal system.
Rhinotracheitis- Infectious respiratory disease caused by feline herpesvirus type-1. Some carriers will not show symptoms but still pose a threat to other felines.
The Perfect Plan
For Your Feline
- Indoor-Only Cats
Most cats that are indoor-only require the core vaccines such as rabies and feline distemper.
- Outdoor Cats
Felines with outdoor access need additional vaccinations for diseases such as feline leukemia.
