Bringing shots current

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
What shots are required in Texas? I'm moving there next month. My cats haven't been poked for anything since their kitten shots.

I'm pretty sure no state requires the combo or leukemia shots. But people who live in Texas should have more info for you. It's required to have a current rabies certificate to bring an animal across state lines. It's not likely you'd be stopped and asked for the certificate, but better safe than sorry.

Just rabies in the state of texas and most city acept three years a few dont.
Make sure you register with what ever city you live in.
even if its a county
every pet has to be registered. They must have there rabies to register them.
Now with that said most people dont. But if your pet gets picked up by animal controle. They will wright you a ticket for not being registered with the city.

My city cost 6 buck if there spayed or neutered if not its like 15
The other city I lived in was free is there where fixed. and 5 if they where not

So it changes.

Regardless or not if they are required, I think it would be in your cat's best interests to get them all UTD. Especially with traveling, they're more likely to get out and catch something that can be prevented. It would be devastating if they got something like feline leukemia.

And all I know is that rabies is required when you travel from state to state with cats or dogs. Best of luck to ya on your move!

Rabies, annual. The other shots are in between you and your vet...

Dallas it is yearly - both of my vets do the registration automatically for me - I do the shots and get out of there registered.

You will need a health certificate issued by your vet, within 10 days from the date of your trip. Make sure to have that with you, otherwise you might have trouble.

You need to discuss this with your vet.... IMO it depends what your traveling plans are - the cats need to exchange bodily fluids to get leukemia or aids, so the odds of that happening are slim to none, considering they will be crated, etc. etc.
Where are you coming from?

As far as I know, just rabies. I honestly wouldn't take the risk of a sudden "power boost" of lots and lots of vaccines.
