All cats living in the UK (even indoor cats) should be vaccinated against Cat Flu (herpes virus and feline calicivirus (FCV))and Feline panleukopenia if your cat goes outside, they should also be vaccinated for: Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV)
Some cats require additional vaccinations such as:
• Rabies - only necessary for cats that travel outside of the UK.
• Chlamydophila Felis - a bacteria that causes conjunctivitis and cat flu like symptoms. Vaccination is only usually needed when there is a problem with the disease.
>>> Vaccination schedule for cat <<<
To be fully protected, your cat will need a primary course of vaccinations, followed by yearly boosters throughout their life. A primary course of vaccines involves two (sometimes three) injections, 2-4 weeks apart. Most cats start their primary course of vaccinations as a kitten at around 9 weeks old, but any adult cat that hasn’t ever been vaccinated, or hasn’t been kept up to date with their yearly boosters, will also need a primary course. Your kitten/cat will usually have full protection seven to ten days after the final injection of their primary course, until then, you will need to keep them protected.
>>> Annual vaccination boosters <<<
If your cat misses a booster, it’s likely that their protection will run out and they will need another primary course.
* Due to nationwide shortage of cat vaccination, We have received information from manufacturers that all fully vaccinated cats have a 3 month leeway with their boosters (Jan/2022)
*Cattery request PRESCRIPTION strength fleas and worming treatment records (product name and date last treated your cat(s) before checking your cat in).
Required proof of purchases (Vet/Online pharmacy invoices or box labels with owner & pet name)
Treat your home - 95% of a flea infestation is in the home, this means that if your cat has fifty fleas on them, your home is likely to have up to one thousand fleas and eggs - and they can survive for up to a year! You can buy household flea spray from your vets or online.
WARNING: Never put a dog flea treatment or a household flea spray on a cat. They often contain ‘permethrin', which is extremely poisonous to cats (as well as fish and birds). Contact your vet immediately if your cat has come into contact with a dog flea treatment, or household flea spray.
