Do you have questions about pet vaccinations? Please read our vaccine FAQ below for answers to the most commonly asked questions.

When should I start vaccinating?
The best time to start vaccinating is at 6-8 weeks old.

How often do I need to vaccinate?
You need to get your vaccines yearly.

My cat is an indoor cat, do I still need to get her vaccinated?
Yes. The core vaccines are still needed for your cat. Rabies is required by law to be administered yearly. The FVRCP vaccination covers panleukopenia, herpes virus and calicivirus. Though your cat may be an indoor cat, there is a high chance they were exposed to the herpes virus as kittens. Once a cat has had it they remain carriers for life. During times of stress, the herpesvirus can surface from dormancy and cause symptoms of illness. If they are vaccinated, the symptoms tend to be mild.

Will my pet feel sick afterward?
Not usually. Occasionally there can be soreness at the injection site or a mild fever. If more serious symptoms develop, call the clinic immediately.

Most symptoms will go away on their own after a short period of time. If you notice any of the following, please call the clinic.

  • Fever
  • Sluggishness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Facial swelling and/or hives
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Pain, swelling, redness, scabbing or hair loss around the injection site
  • Lameness
  • Collapse
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Seizures

Do vaccines take effect immediately?
No. They take 14 days for your pet to be fully protected.
