At Country Vet Service in Farmington, AR, our animal clinic offers a full array of services for pets of all types and sizes to provide the care your pet requires to maintain a healthy life. One of those services is vaccinations. For pet parents with felines, scheduling a visit for a cat vaccination is the first step in supporting good health.
An important part of your pet's good health is ensuring they receive preventative care, which is an initial checkup followed by annual wellness checks. During the checkup, our veterinarian takes a close look at your pet, providing a thorough examination. You will be asked questions about your pet and if you have noticed any changes in its weight, appetite, or behavior. If any diagnostic tests are needed, such as blood work, we'll take care of that as well as administer vaccinations.
Benefits of a Cat Vaccination
Whether your cat stays indoors all the time, is an outdoor cat, or splits its time between the home and the outdoors, a vaccination is necessary in each situation to prevent them from contracting rabies, distemper, feline leukemia, feline herpesvirus-1, and more.
Cats that have access to the outdoors can come into contact with wildlife or other animals that may be sick or have rabies. If your pet comes into contact with bodily fluids from an infected animal or is bitten by a flea that has fed on an infected cat, it can lead to distemper in your pet. A pet vaccination is also beneficial in the event that your strictly indoor kitty manages to get outside where it will be subjected to potentially interacting with other animals. Also, if you have your pet groomed, it will be protected from the possibility of coming in contact with a sick animal or infected fleas.
Whether your home is the residence of a litter of kittens, adolescents, adults, or senior felines, a vaccination will protect your fur friend against potentially harmful infections and diseases, leading to a longer and healthier life.
