Vaccinations are used carefully and selectively to prevent serious contagious diseases. We follow the vaccination guidelines used by the major veterinary teaching hospitals in the US. The vaccine types recommended and the frequency of vaccinations vary depending on the lifestyle of the pet being vaccinated, whether indoor or outdoor, and any underlying disease conditions such as immune-mediated diseases or pre-existing infections such as FIV infection. Because these factors may change over time, we recommend the vaccination plan for each individual patient be decided by the doctor, in consultation with the owner, when any vaccines are indicated at routine annual examinations.
Our feline rabies vaccine does not contain an adjuvant - an ingredient added to many vaccines to stimulate the immune system. Avoiding adjuvants prevents vaccine-induced skin cancer.
