Vaccination & Reproductive Surgery Schedule

Keep your puppy or kitten up to date on their shots throughout their lifetime to help protect them against a range of serious, sometimes life-threating diseases; and have your pet spayed or neutered to prevent the birth of unwanted litters, protect their long-term health and prevent unwanted behaviors such as howling, scooting, roaming and animal aggression.

Cat Vaccinations

In their first year, kittens need the following vaccinations to protect them from serious diseases. 

  • 6 to 8 weeks
    • Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia
  • 10 to 12 weeks
    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia

    • Booster: Rhinotracheitis, Calcivirus, Panleukopenia, Chlamydia

    While the following are not vaccinations, spaying, neutering and microchipping help protect your cat from a number of health issues. 

    • Spay (females) - Cat spaying prevents the birth of unwanted litters of kittens, protects your cat against serious illnesses, and helps to prevent behaviors such as howling and scooting that accompany heat cycles.
    • Neuter (males) - Cat neutering prevents your male cat from fathering unwanted kittens, protects your cat against various illnesses and can help to prevent territory marking (spraying), roaming, howling and cat aggression.
