Cat Vaccinations

Vaccinations are important to help prevent varying bacterial and viral disease that your pet may come in to contact with. At Mountain Road we believe that vaccines are individualized for every cat based on you and your pets lifestyle.

Does my indoor cat need to be vaccinated?


This is a discussion that you can have with your veterinarian.

What is FVRCP and core vaccine for cats?


FVRCP is an acronym for Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia. CORE VACCINES are those recommended for all cats, which includes FVRCP.

How often does my adult cat need vaccination?


This will depend on the lifestyle of you and your cat. This conversation can be had between you and your Veterinarian. A plan can then be put in place for the vaccination recall of your beloved pet.

Are there any risk associated with vaccines?


Yes, there is always a risk involved when giving any type of vaccination. The benefits of vaccination greatly outweigh the possible risks. Some of these diseases we vaccinate against can be fatal. Rarely, more serious allergic reactions can occur and may include vomiting, diarrhea, facial swelling, difficulty breathing. These reactions can appear within minutes or hours after the vaccination and require immediate veterinary care. Another uncommon reaction is a tumour at the injection site. This can develop months or years after vaccination. Talk to your veterinarian about any persistent lumps or swellings at injection sites.
