Cat Vaccinations  
     
 

AT HAPPY CATS WE REQUIRE THAT ALL CATS BE VACCINATED AGAINST PANLEUCOPNIA AND CAT 'FLU' AND THAT THE COURSE MUST BE COMPLETED 10 DAYS PRIOR TO BOARDING.

Vaccines are available against the following cat diseases:

PANLEUCOPNIA (ENTERITIS FIE): an uncommon, potentially fatal disease, particularly of younger cats. Vaccination is required for boarding.

CAT 'FLU' (FVR Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis also known as Feline Herpes Virus & FCV Feline Calicivirus): a common virus infection, much like the human cold. Fatal cases are rare. Most cases are caused by two types of virus which are included in the vaccine. Vaccination is effective and annual boosters are required.

LEUKAEMIA (FeLV): this virus infection is common and life threatening. Cats are infected either in the womb, by direct contact and mutual grooming, or as a result of a bite from an infected cat. Cats up to four years old are most susceptible to infection. Providing a cat is not already carrying the virus, vaccination is very effective. A blood test is available to detect the virus.

CHLAMYDIA (Ch): this organism causes flu-like symptoms and conjunctivitis. It is a particular problem in breeding catteries (Happy Cats IS NOT a breeding cattery).

Vaccination schedules

Two injections, three weeks apart, of both Panleucopnia and 'Flu' vaccines are required, followed by annual booster.

Two injections, three weeks apart, of Leukaemia vaccine is also available, which can be carried out at the same time, followed by an annual booster.
