Kitten vaccinations are generally carried out from as early as 9 weeks of age, with the second dose three weeks later.
Cat booster vaccinations are then given each year to ensure your cats immunity is maintained. There are four main cat vaccinations that are advised for your cat:
Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis - 'cat flu' is easily transmitted from one cat to another. This disease can be dangerous in any unprotected cat.
Feline Calicivirus - another major cause of upper respiratory-tract infection ('cat flu') in cats. Vaccination is therefore important and advised for all cats.
Feline Panleucopenia - virus infects and kills cells that are rapidly growing and dividing, such as those in the bone marrow, intestines, and the developing fetus. Vaccination against this potentially fatal disease is absolutely essential.
Feline Leukaemia (FeLV) - infection with the virus can result in a multitude of serious health problems. Vaccination against this potentially fatal disease is highly recommended, especially if your cat goes outdoors.
Other cat vaccinations
After evaluating your cat's particular situation and risk factors, your veterinary surgeon may also recommend vaccination against other infectious diseases. These might include: Feline Chlamydiosis & Rabies.

How much will my pet’s treatment cost?
The treatment cost for your pet can vary depending on the service provided. You can request an estimate before any treatment is provided to your pet.
Will my pet insurance cover the costs of treatment?
Having a good pet insurance policy allows you to concentrate on what’s best for your pet while knowing help is there for the cost of unexpected treatment should they become ill or are injured. The type of policy you choose can have implications for the costs you will face so it’s important to choose the right cover.
The four main types of policy are as follows:
- Accident: provides cover for accidents only and no cover for illness
- Time-Limited: provides cover for a set amount of time (usually 12 months) and after this period the condition is excluded
- Maximum Benefit: provides cover up to a maximum amount of money per condition and once this limit is reached the condition is excluded
- Lifetime: provides a set amount of money each year which is refreshed each time you renew your policy allowing you to continue to claim for ongoing conditions
