Vaccinations can prevent your cat from succumbing to illness or disease. As a cat owner in Winter Garden, it's important to ensure that your cat gets the vaccinations he or she needs to maintain immunity and good quality of life. At Winter Garden Animal Hospital, we help cat owners determine which vaccines are right for their cat, so our pet patients can be protected and healthy.
Core vaccines, also called required vaccinations, are administered to all cats regardless of their lifestyle. These vaccines protect against some of the most common illnesses that affect the general cat population. Core feline vaccines include:
Non-core vaccinations, also sometimes called recommended vaccinations, are vaccines that are only administered to cats who are at risk for certain illnesses. Non-core vaccines, like the feline leukemia vaccine, are only given to cats on an as-needed basis. At Winter Garden Animal Hospital, we can recommend non-core vaccinations to help your cat stay healthy.
There are many benefits to cat vaccinations!
Vaccines are typically safe, but some cats will experience mild side effects in the first 24 hours after getting a vaccine. Side effects include:
In very rare cases, some cats may experience more serious side effects, including difficulty breathing, swelling, and loss of consciousness. Any cats who experience these side effects should be brought to their pet's veterinarian right away.
At Winter Garden Animal Hospital, we administer core and non-core vaccines. We serve cats in Winter Garden and the surrounding areas, including Ocoee and Windermere. Whether your cat needs his or her initial vaccines or is due for booster shots, we can help. Contact us today to make an appointment. We look forward to meeting with you!
