Kitten Shots

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What are the names of shots that kittens need to have before they are a year old
post #2 of 13
I don't remember what the shots are called, but you can call your local animal hospital, and they would be able to tell you, and I'm guessing that it would be of no charge at all...sorry I couldn't be of more help!

I only ask becuase when i adopted my kitty from a co-worker they said that they have had the most important shots... i will not have the records of what she has and does not have. so i was asking so when i look at her records i know what she still needs if anything.

If she has had all of her baby shots then she will need boosters of all of those shots plus rabies at 1 yr old, then boosters as often as your vet feels needed. Usually either once a year or once every three years, depending on which protocols your vet observes.

If you adopted her from the shelter then yes, she will have had all of her baby shots and your vet will work with you on what she needs from now on.

The "core" vaccines are feline panleukopenia virus (FPV), feline herpes virus 1 (FHV-1), feline calcivirus (FCV), and rabies virus (RV). The first three are usually combined into a "three-way" shot given at 6 -8 weeks of age, then repeated every 3-4 weeks until the kitten is over 12 weeks of age. The rabies vaccine is given after the age of 12 weeks. Boosters are given at the age of one year, and then every 1 - 3 years, depending on local laws and the vaccines used.

"Non-core" vaccines are feline leukemia virus (FeLV), feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIPV) and chlamydia.

Great thank you so much, i should be getting the records this week. the lady i got her from work said that she had to order a copy of her vet records for me and they will be put in the mail tonight.

I will let you know what she has had and has not had when i find out.

Now if she has not had all her "core" shots will i have to get them before she gets spayed ... if so how long do i have to wait to do it. Or can they give them to her when they spay her

It turns out that she has not had ANY shots. She has only been tested for Feline Leukemia test which was (-) so now i have to get shots and spayed. the vet that has seen her said that they will do the shots and get her spayed at the same time. It would be $55 for spay, $22 for shots, and then the price of the shots.

That's a pretty fair price actually.

You have been quoted a very fair price. It will cost me minimum of $160 to have Sadie spayed, and it cost me $100 everytime she had her shots.

Does anyone know the average price of getting cats spayed and neutered?

I'm booking appointment for kitten vaccinations at the moment too. The prices here in the UK vary. My local vet wants £40 for the spay and £60 for the kitten vaccinations (per kitten).

I have looked around and found another vet practice that is doing vaccinations for £25 as a special offer during the month of May only. Luckily, all my 5 kittens are due for vaccination in May (1 of them has been done already). I am very happy about that!

Spay wise, the National Spay and Neuter charity have kindly offered to spay the mum cat for £20.

How do these prices compare with US prices?

Zissou's "Cat Shot" included Panleukopenia, Rhinotracheitis, and Calcivirus. She got one of those at 3 months and another at 4 months, and then she's done with those, according to the vet, for life. She got her first rabies shot at six months and will need another after a year, and then every year after.

Her spay was 45$. Her new vet probably charges alot more, his base price for an appt is 38$ but he is private practice, the other one was a low-cost clinic at a shelter. I like the new one, and I don't think he overcharges, its just more expensive of course because he's not getting donations!

Thats what i thought. To just get the shots i would have to pay $110 for her to be de-wormed, distemper, rabies and Feline Leukemia. so i get all the shots i need for face value and then 55 for the spay (which includeds a pre spay phyiscal) and then 22 for the pain meds... i am so happy to have this done. no more meow at the moon
