Vaccinations are an important part of your cat's wellness. As your cat's veterinarian we are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date vaccine protocols available. With that in mind, we are pleased to announce a change in our vaccination protocols that we feel offers the best preventive care to our feline patients.
New vaccines are available that have less side effects and better efficacy than those previously available. We feel strongly that the increased protection and safety is an important part of your cat's immunization program. The changes include:
- Vaccinating for Feline Distemper every 3 years instead of annually.
- Using the Merial Purevax Rabies vaccine that will be administered annually.
Regardless of any changes to your cat's vaccine protocol, we still stress the importance of a thorough annual exam and parasite screening for all adult cats and an exam every 6 month for senior cats.
We welcome your questions and comments as we move forward with a better and safer vaccination program for your pets. Learn more about our Feline Preventive Care Recommendations or call us at (585) 394-2288 with any questions.
