Kitten Vaccinations

Kittens have developing immune systems that require a delicate, timed balance of injections to make sure that they are fully and completely protected during their growing months, and that they develop the proper “memory cells” to protect them into their adulthood.

When do kittens get their first shots?

First vaccines in kittens should be at 6 weeks of age, with boosters at 8 weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks.

How often do my kittens need vaccines?

Kittens need monthly vaccinations for the first 4 months of their lives, then annual visits lifelong.

Does my kitten need only core vaccines?

For kittens in Moncton, the core vaccines are FVRCP, leukemia, and rabies vaccines. These three shots help improve the long-term health of your cat. There are additional treatments and preventions that certain cats may need based on their lifestyle and travel plans. We would be happy to work with each individual for any cat’s unique needs.

Are there any risk associated with vaccines?

Vaccines are very safe. We will be happy to discuss any concerns you may have for your individual pet.
