CheapShots Cat Vaccination Protocol

Resource : Cat Vaccination Guidelines

FVRCP – core vaccination

    Combined Vaccination Protecting Against Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calci-Panleukopenia. For Kittens and Adult Cats – We recommend 3 sets of vaccinations given at 4 week intervals for all kittens. Your cat will get a booster vaccine 1 year after the initial set. After the first year, this vaccination should be administered yearly.

Feline Leukemia Vaccination – non core vaccination

    This vaccination is recommended for all kittens, and outdoor cats. For Kittens and Adult Cats – We recommend 2 sets of vaccinations given at 4 week intervals. After the first year, this vaccination should be administered every other year (2 year vaccine) to cats that are exposed to the outside environment.

Rabies – core vaccination

    Rabies vaccination is required by state law and can “only” be given by a licensed veterinarian, or under the “direct supervision” of a licensed veterinarian. Kittens can be vaccinated against Rabies between 12-16 weeks of age. A non-vaccinated adult cat (or adult cat with unknown vaccination history) needs immediate rabies vaccination.

    The first Rabies vaccination is good for 1 year only. Subsequent vaccinations are good for 3 years. CheapShots only uses a 3 year rabies vaccine.

Typical Kitten Vaccination Protocol

      Kittens … “Kitten Pack”

      First Set of Vaccinations @ 8 weeks of age
      ~ FVRCP, FeLV, Roundworm, Hookworm Medication Orally

      Second Set of Vaccinations @ 12 weeks of age
      ~ FVRCP, FeLV, Roundworm, Hookworm Medication Orally

      Third Set of Vaccinations @ 16 weeks of age
      ~ FVRCP, Rabies, Roundworm, Hookworm Medication Orally

    … the kitten series of vaccinations is now done until their first birthday

    Please Read :
    CheapShots gives a 3 year Rabies vaccinations to ALL ANIMALS. Even though your kitten was vaccinated with a 3 year rabies vaccine at 16 weeks of age it is recognized only as a one year vaccine until they get another second 3 year vaccine on their first birthday. At that time the 3 year rabies is then recognized. The only way the County you live in will recognize a 3 year rabies vaccine is if there are (2) three year rabies vaccines given within the span of (1) year by a licensed veterinarian. This ruling applies to every veterinary clinic in the State of Florida.
