Appropriate and timely vaccination in kittens is an important and simple way to improve their quality of life and prolong their lifespan. Discussion with our veterinarians will include an evaluation of your kitten’s intended lifestyle and associated risk of disease exposure, which will determine the vaccinations recommended for them.
Kittens should receive their first core vaccines (FVRCP) at 9 and 13 weeks of age. If another veterinarian or rescue organization has started on a different schedule, our veterinarians can discuss how to adjust your kitten’s vaccination schedule accordingly to ensure they are protected.
How often does my kitten need to be vaccinated?
After the initial series of two vaccinations for your kitten, a booster 1 year later is recommended. Adult cats then receive boosters every 3 years (1 year of age, 4 years of age, etc.)
Does my kitten only need core vaccines?
Depending on your kitten’s lifestyle, our veterinarians may recommend FeLV and rabies vaccinations, in addition to the core FVRCP vaccine. Please see our discussion of vaccination types for cats for further information on these vaccines and diseases.
Southpointe Pet Hospital is committed to doing our part in protecting our community from the spread of COVID-19. To allow us to continue operating during the pandemic, we have implemented a CLOSED DOOR POLICY.
For the safety of our staff, clients and our entire community, ONLY ONE CLIENT WILL BE ALLOWED TO ACCOMPANY THEIR PET INTO THE BUILDING AT A TIME, and A MASK MUST BE WORN TO ENTER.
When you arrive in our parking lot, please remain in your vehicle and call (403) 532-0085. Our staff will advise you on when you can enter for your appointment, or deliver prescriptions and food orders to your vehicle.
For safety reasons, please be prepared to pay with CREDIT or DEBIT, as cash will not be accepted. If you do not have a phone or if your animal is experiencing an emergency, please knock on the door to alert our staff.
As of June 29, 2020, we are resuming normal scheduling of non-urgent appointments, including annual exams, vaccinations, spays and neuters with clients present.
