Vaccination Schedule for Kittens and Adult Cats

Why Vaccination?

Vaccination is a major tool for reducing and eliminating chances of fatal illness, which has been used successfully since long time and now it is commonly practised by veterinarians. Since cat is now considered to be the most favourite pet so for protection of cats against deadly diseases it is much necessary that they should be vaccinated.

Cat vaccines are divided into two groups; Core Vaccines & Non Core Vaccines.

Core Vaccines: Vaccines that are effective against major and most prevalent diseases and which should be done to cats at any cost for their safe healthy life. These diseases are:

  • Feline Panleukopenia
  • Feline Calicivirus Infection
  • Feline Rhinotracheitis
  • Rabies

Non Core Vaccines: These are optional vaccines and provide immunity against less prevalent diseases. These are not as much necessary as core vaccines are. These diseases are caused by following agents:

  • Feline Leukemia Virus
  • Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
  • Bordetella bronchiseptica
  • Chlamydia felis

 

Feline Vaccines Available in Pakistan:

1- Fel-O-Vax

It is a core vaccine of cats that immunizes your cat against 3 major viral diseases i.e Feline Panleukopenia, Feline Rhinotracheitis and Feline Calicivirus.

2- Biofel PCH

This vaccine covers the same 3 viral diseases that are prevented by Fel-O-Vax

3- Biofel PCHR

In addition to Biofel PCH, Biofel PCHR also provides immunity against rabies.

4- Rabisin

The most commonly used vaccine against rabies.

Vaccination Schedule for Kittens:

Firstly, de-worming is done at 40 days of age then after 10 days of de-worming or 7-8 week of age and after a week of de-worming, first shot of Vaccine (Fel-O-Vax OR Biofel) is given. After 3 weeks of this dose second shot is administered. Then after 3 weeks, 2 shots of Rabies vaccine are administered with an interval of 3 weeks. Now you cat is protected & annual booster dose is given every year.

Vaccination Schedule for Adult Cats:

If your cat is more than 4 months then Fel-O-Vax and Rabisin can be administered simultaneously or a day apart following second shot 3 weeks later and an annual booster dose.
