Owners And Pets Participate In The Supreme Cat Show

Much like humans, cats also need their fair share of vaccines. With any pet it’s important to take precautions, especially since they don’t have health insurance like we do! There are so many different diseases that cats need protection from. Be sure to speak with your veterinarian in order to know which ones your cat really needs. There are different requirements depending on your location.

Here are five cat vaccines you should consider getting for your feline:

1. Rabies РThis is one of the vaccines that is required by law. It prevents against rabies, which is a fatal infection that is usually transmitted by the bite of an animal that is infected.

2. Feline Distemper – Also known as panleukopenia, it is a contagious and possibly fatal disease among cats. The vaccine is usually given as part of a combination with vaccines for other diseases.

3. Feline Leukemia Virus – If your cat spends any time outdoors, you definitely want your feline to get the vaccine for the feline leukemia virus. Feline leukemia virus is one of the leading causes of death in cats and is caused by an immune system virus. The scary thing is that cats could be infected for a long time before showing any symptoms.

4. Upper Respiratory Disease – This disease produces cold symptoms as well as ulcers in the mouth, tongue or in the throat. The disease can sometimes be fatal, so it’s best for your kitty to get the vaccine, which is a series of vaccinations that can begin for cats as early as six weeks old.

5. Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease – This is an important vaccine as it protects against a number of diseases that affect the bladder as well as the urethra and other lower urinary system parts.
