Most of our vaccinated feline patients have yearly injections against a combination of flu, enteritis and leukaemia viruses.
We have traditionally given all 3 of these viruses every year as part of their annual booster.
With new, modern, highly effective vaccines it is becoming clear that cats immune systems do not need all these to be given every 12 months. We will now be alternating injections so some years your cat will get a full 3- in-1 vaccination but other years they only need a reduced vaccination. This will save on costs as this is a less expensive vaccination but also means we are not giving our patients more vaccinations than they need.
Your vet will discuss this with you when we come to do your cat’s annual health check and vaccination.
