Lesson 35 ª









Both cats and dogs need to be vaccinated against rabies by law. They also need to be vaccinated every year. This also needs to be done if we are traveling outside the country; otherwise, it won't be let through.

Besides the rabies vaccine, there are other vaccines which are important for cats. These protect it against diseases which have no treatment and are highly contagious.

When a female cat is properly vaccinated, it will transmit proper defences to its kittens through its milk. Unfortunately, this is not always true.

For this reason, it is advisable for us to begin the vaccination process after they have taken their anti-parasites and after they have overcome the stress of moving into a new home. Depending on the age of the cat, Vaccines will be administered every 15 days as the veterinary indicates.

Diseases which affect cats:

Feline Viral Leukaemia





Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)

These diseases need to be controlled with one vaccination per year if we want to have a healthy and long-living cat.
