The Cat Doctor


Preventative medicine is a cornerstone of our practice and timely vaccination is a vital component in maintaining your cat’s health. Proper vaccination is critical in warding off and preventing the spread of harmful diseases.


We believe that preventative care is one of the most important aspects of maintaining your cat’s health. There are a variety of diseases that affect cats, so proper vaccination of your cat is vital in protecting them from the many types of illnesses they are susceptible to.

Why are vaccinations important?

Vaccinations are vital to the health and protection of your cat and serve as a preventive measure to combating viral diseases like Herpes, Calci Virus, Distemper, Feline Leukemia Virus, and Rabies.

When should my cat get vaccinated?

Vaccinations are particularly important for kittens that have immature immune systems. Veterinary vaccinations generally begin at 6-8 weeks of age and then boostered through your cat’s life depending on the vaccine. Our doctors will determine the appropriate vaccination plan for your cat.

How are vaccines administered?

Vaccines help to combat diseases by exposing the cat's immune system to inactive or small amounts of a particular form of bacteria or virus. Vaccines are administered through a subcutaneous injection (under the skin), orally, or intra-nasally, depending on the vaccine. Vaccinations are accompanied by a consultation and examination with our veterinarians to make certain that your cat's condition is stable enough to receive them. Proper and timely administration is necessary to ensure optimal protection.
