Just got Jack's contract to sign so he's officially ours. One thing I noticed is that there seems to be some medical problems now related to the chlamydia vaccines and that if you give them the health guarantee is voided.

I do know that many breeders will not give the FELV vaccines (I never did for any of my cats cause didn't like the problems), but this is the first I've heard about chlamydia. Charlie's breeder who is a vet told us never to give FELV.

I think the chlamydia vaccine was included in the 4 in 1 shot years ago which my cats got.

Anyone have anything recent? I'll have to notify my vet to not be giving it per breeder's instructions when I take Jack in after he gets here.

Chlamydia is recommended for outdoor cats. Jake got it even tho he is indoor bc my vet just gave it to him without asking me. from what i've read it's just a high risk vaccine and reactions and complications are more common after it.

Cleo can never have the leukemia shot either.
It voids the contract.
Coco and Meeko used to get until Lucy died from it.
Sasha just got RCCP shot. Included in this vaccine are Feline Panleukopenia (Feline Distemper), Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, and Feline Calici Virus.
Cleo got the same shot as Sasha got before she came here.
She has the RCCP and Rabies.
That is it.

Many breeders over here won't do F4's anymore, or F5 etc. Too many problems. They only do and recommend the F3's.

We don't reccomend this vaccine. My Nana and I bought 4 cats off a breeder (she's got 3 and I've got 1) and only 1 of them got the Chlamydia vaccine (she was the oldest) and she's had a lot of problems

I don't have any option to omit any vaccine at all, as my vet, like most vets here, only carries the 5-in-1 vaccine - they can only purchase vaccines in batches of 25 and as most cats here are outdoor cats they do need the 5-in-1 - this is a problem with all vets here, as most of the cats they deal with go outdoors, they only purchase the 5-in-1 vaccines.

I have to say though that I have never had any problems with using that vaccine. Even Radar (who has been a bit off colour on previous ocassions following vaccination) was completely fine after his last shots.

Does the 5 in 1 have FeLV ?I know it must be distemper, calici virus, rhinotracheitis, chlamydia, and so the fifth one must be FeLV??? I didn't even think this one was given to kittens...

My vet also does the 5 in 1 vaccine. It includes: panleukopenia, rhinotracheitis, calicvirus, chlamydia and leukemia.

We have not had any problems with this one.
