This is a stupid question, and the reason for it, is totally, my fault.
Why are FVRCP shots, some given 1 yr and some given 3 yrs? What is the difference?
I put all my cats medical records, all in one folder, all mixed together, not in even date order. I always relied, on the little card the vet sends you, when they are due for anything. I never kept tract myself, just relied on them.
That mistake, caused 1 to be expired on their rabies by 2 weeks, 1 by 2 months. Totally my fault, for not keeping tract myself, and keeping each one, in a seperate folder, and in date order.
So, corrected that, put their records in seperate folders, got their rabies shots.
I have 2 brothers, same litter, I knew, they were UTD on everything, they are on the circuit, and I knew, their rabies didn't expire, until Dec, because I carry them with me, in a seperate plastic bag, as health inspectors will spot check, at shows. The rabies, not the kitties, lol.
So, decided, it would be a good idea, to seperate their records too, in seperate folders.
They travel everywhere together, they go to shows together, they got neutered together, they got and get, all their shots, together.
Now, looking at their records, one is due for his FVRCP shot in 2013, he got a 3 yr. The other says, he is due, in Sept 2012, says he got a 1 yr.
That can't be possible.
They got their shots at the same exact time.
So, why, are some given 1 yr and some given 3 yr, and why, would each one, be given a different one?
Should they be given a 1 yr or a 3 yr?
Yes, I know, my vet would have the records, of what was given and why, and yes, I know I have to call and ask.
I also know this is totally my fault, for not keeping better tract, lol, and I would feel a whole lot better, if someone yelled at me, lol.
