Kittens, Cats and Vaccinations

A pedigree kitten should have had its required vaccinations prior to you buying it. When buying a pedigree kitten you need to remember that they come with paperwork which verifys what vaccinations have been administered and when. If you are purchasing an average moggy then you will need to throughly consider the issues surrounding each vaccination yourself.

All kittens ought to be vaccinated before they are allowed outdoors. This is to build their immune system up. The vaccination process usually starts between 6-8 weeks so that it is possible that if you take your kitten hoome at 8 weeks the likelyhood is he will have already received his first vaccination. Generally the shots are given 2-3 weeks apart and there are usually 3 shots in total. A rabies jab is rarely included in the initial vaccinations given to your kitten, if your kitten is permitted to go outside this is an additional shot that you may wish to discuss with your vetinarian.

The shots that younger cats get will cover them against such diseases like:

Rhinotracheitis which is characterized by symptoms like sneezing, fever, ocular discharge, and coughing. 

Calicivirus- which affects the breathing system, and has characteristics like pneumonia, diarrhea and sometimes arthritis. 

Feline Distemper which is associated with diarrhea and vomiting type symptoms.

Feline Leukemia Virus otherwise referred to as FeLV – destroys a cats immune system and is known to be responsible for thousands of feline deaths as it leads to fatal infections.

Feline AIDS-is very much like FeLV and effectively destroys the immune system of the cat making it more susceptable to fatal infections.

FIP or Feline Infectious Peritonitis to give it its proper name is an incurable infection which attacks the abdominal area.

Chlamydia – affecting eyes and respiratory area, this disease is both common and contagious.

It is important to note that some of these vaccinations will need to be updated annually to ensure your cat’s immune system is running at its best please check with your veterinary clinic to ensure that your cat’s jabs are always up to date.
