Common diseases cats need to be vaccinated against include:

How Often Should Your Pet Be Vaccinated?
Depending on the age and type of pet, vaccination times will vary. Our friendly team are always on hand to discuss your pet’s vaccination needs. As a guide:
Vaccinating Kittens and Puppies
Kittens and puppies should have their first vaccination at 6-8 weeks old, second vaccination at 10-12 weeks and a third at 16 weeks.
Vaccinating Adult Cats and Dogs
Adult pets require different vaccinations and boosters to ensure long-term immunity against contagious diseases. It’s important to contact your vet to determine the most suitable long-term vaccination program. Your pet’s lifestyle and environment will be taken into consideration when deciding on their ongoing disease prevention program.
