Cat Vaccinations Near Me

We recommend that vaccinations be started whilst kittens are young as they only have a small amount of protection from their mothers, which fades away at a young age.

We routinely start cat vaccinations from 9 weeks of age for Cat Flu, Enteritis and Feline Leukaemia, with the second injection 3-4 weeks later to complete the course. 

Kittens are then fully protected 10-14 days later and are able to venture outside after this time.

It is very important to complete the course because otherwise maximum protection against diseases will not be achieved.  We then suggest an annual vaccination.

Here at Woodward Veterinary Practice, we can vaccinate your cat against the following diseases:

  • Cat Flu
  • Feline Enteritis
  • Feline Leukaemia Virus
  • Feline Chlamydophila

We can talk you through any type of vaccination that may be required for your cat.

Cat Vaccinations Leicester FAQs

Why are cat vaccinations necessary?

Vaccinations are essential for providing your cat with adequate protection from life-threatening and debilitating diseases. There is the option of Titre testing, which involves blood samples to determine your cat’s immunity. Unfortunately, this is not always 100% reliable and can be costly to perform. Cats also staying in boarding or cattery facilities are often required to be vaccinated if you're planning to go on holiday.

Do indoor cats need vaccinations?  

Indoor cats still require vaccines, but this may be a reduced course that only includes cat flu and enteritis. However, many indoor cat owners still have a full vaccination course each year just in case their cat decides to go out exploring!

What happens if you don't vaccinate your cat?

Deciding not to vaccinate runs the risk of your cat contracting various harmful diseases. If you also want to travel with your cat or need them to stay in boarding facilities or catteries, most sites require up-to-date vaccination status and will not accept unvaccinated animals. A simple yearly vaccination course can help to protect your cat so they can live a happy and healthy life.

Should you vaccinate an older cat?

As long as your cat is fit and healthy, we would always recommend vaccinations for your cat. These vaccinations provide protection from harmful diseases.
