Kitten Vaccinations in Palmetto, GA

Also serving Newnan, Peachtree City, Fairburn, Tyrone, Chattahochee Hills, & South Fulton

We recommend starting vaccinations at about 8 weeks of age, continuing until the kitten is 4 months old.

According to the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP), the core vaccines (those that are recommended for ALL cats) are feline panleukopenia virus (FPV), feline herpesvirus-1 (FHV-1), and feline calicivirus (FCV), we offer these vaccinations as well as Rabies.

Feline Rhinotracheitis, like Feline Calicivirus is a respiratory infection and can become chronic if a kitten gets sick, so this vaccine is recommended.

Additionally, we recommend the Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) vaccination. Granted, indoor cats are not at a lot of risk for this disease, but you can never be 100% certain that the kitten will never go outside or be introduced to a new kitten at a later date.
