Took little "piggy" Scooter to the Vet tonight for a check up. She is soooooo healthy and the Vet fell in love with her. All 5 pounds of kitty mush! My question is this: I forgot (senior moment) to ask how long it takes for the FVRCP vaccination to become effective. Scooter does not show any signs of the resperitory virus that her brothers had. I want her to be healthy when she finds her new 'forever family'

Thanks, Deb

Well, it's actually after the second booster that it starts to become effective against the upper respitory's. In order for the vaccine to work, it must activate the bodies response a few times. Which is the reason they usually get 3 kitten boosters 3 to 4 weeks apart. Then it's annual to remind the body of what it's supposed to do. I have found over time that depending on the cats immune system from birth is weather the 2nd is sufficient or the 3rd is a must.

Thanks Sandie - I knew you would have the answer! You are such a wealth of knowledge to all of us here. I will make sure that Scooter's family knows to get her continued on the shots. I always send the medical records that I get from the Vet. I SURE HOPE SHE WILL FIND A GOOD FAMILY! TOO SWEET!!!
