The kittens were absolute diamonds at the vets today.?????
All the kittens and mum received their injections (Kitten’s first injection and Maddison’s booster)… all tired now….it’s a stressful world out there!!!
Vaccinations protect against a wide range of infectious diseases, many of which can be fatal for our pets.
Vaccinations protect your cat from:
- Cat flu
- Feline infectious enteritis
- Feline Chlamydophilosis
- Feline Leukaemia virus
Vaccinations for kittens
Serious diseases like cat flu can affect cats of any age but kittens are especially vulnerable. It’s important to get them vaccinated early to reduce their risk of becoming seriously ill:
- Kittens can start their vaccinations from 9 weeks old.
- They’ll need a second set of injections 2-4 weeks after their first set.
- Your kitten won’t be fully protected until 2 weeks after their second jabs so keep them indoors and away from any unvaccinated cats. It’s important for kittens to get used to every day sights and sounds while they’re still young.
