Vaccines for Kittens & Cats

Prevention and good health start with a vaccination plan for your cat or kitten.

Getting your kitten or cat vaccinated is one of the first forms of preventive care you can provide for them and your family. Vaccines will protect your loyal companion and your family from contracting diseases, especially when their maternal antibodies wear off. With a wide range of vaccines available, it is essential that your cat or kitten receives only the vaccines they truly need. Consult with our veterinarians today to learn which vaccines are suitable for your cat's specific needs and lifestyle. Please call us at 705-885-7387.

When should my kitten or cat be vaccinated?

It's best that kittens have their first vaccines when they are between 6 to 8 weeks old. To build up an effective level of immunity, different doses are given every 4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old. For the rabies vaccine, one shot at 3 to 6 months is enough to provide ideal immunity. Adult cats are vaccinated every 1 to 3 years for both types of vaccines, once they complete the kitten series. Our veterinarian will decide which protocol will be the best for your cat, ensuring they receive the appropriate and necessary vaccinations to stay protected and healthy.

How can I keep up with my kitten/cat vaccination schedule?

When your feline companion is due for a vaccine, we will send reminders to make sure you don’t miss the appointment. Additionally, during your wellness appointment, your pet's file will be accessed, and if any vaccine is needed, we will explain and prepare to have it done.

What vaccines will be given to my cat?

Your feline companion’s vaccine requirement may be different from another cat’s. Some vaccines are mandated by law because they protect your kitten/cat from deadly or zoonotic diseases. Our veterinarian may recommend additional vaccines based on your cat’s lifestyle and environment. At Gray Street Veterinary Services, we offer all cat vaccines and our veterinarians will determine which ones are necessary for your feline. Here are some vaccines your cat may need:
