Vaccinations

Cats are susceptible to a range of infectious diseases. Fortunately, we are able to immunize against some of these potentially fatal diseases. We can’t make specific recommendations on vaccinations without knowing the lifestyle of your pet. Generally though, many vaccinations will need repeating annually. We send out regular reminders every year through the post or by email. Prior to the vaccination, your cat will be given a full physical examination to check for any health issues. Please note that will not give live vaccinations if your cat is pregnant in case it harms the unborn kittens.
Kitten core vaccinations

For the core (general) vaccines, the first injection will normally be given at 9 weeks of age, followed by the first booster 3 weeks later at 12 weeks of age.

A final dose can be given at 16 weeks of age or later followed by yearly boosters.

Vaccinations available for your cat are:

Panleukopaenia Virus– core vaccine

Feline Herpes Virus 1– core vaccine

Feline Calicivirus– core vaccine

Chlamydophila felis Only recommended as part of a control regime in a multiple cat household where infections associated with clinical disease has been confirmed. Also certain countries e.g. Singapore require this vaccine before exporting your cat.

Feline Leukaemia Virus– Cats should be tested for FeLV infection prior to vaccination. Very rare in Hong Kong so we do not routinely vaccinate against this disease.

Rabies Only required for exporting purposes (pet travel) to certain countries. Can be given as early as 12 weeks of age.

We do not recommend vaccination against Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) or Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP – Feline Coronavirus).
