Just a quick question.

What vaccines should kitties receive on a yearly basis? And which ones can the owner administer themselves? I know that some are considerable cheaper then what the vet will charge.

Also I was looking over old vet receipts for one of my kitties and I came across this 3 way shot, but unsure as to what the vaccine is for?

Feline Rhinotracheitis-Calici-Panleukopenia Vaccine

It all depends on your cats exposure and state law. The distemper vaccine(which is the 3 way vax your cat got) can be given every one, two or three years depending on your vet's recomendation, the cat's age and whether he goes outside or not.

The rabies vax depends on state law. In Massachusetts an animal can recieve a vax that is good for one year and if boostered on time he can recieve a vax that is good for three years.

The feline leukemia vax is only necessary if the cat goes outside or comes in close contact with a cat who goes out.

Panleukopenia is what is known as feline distemper and before regular vaccinations were given many cats were dying from this along with upper respiratory infections(calicivirus and rhinotracheitis).
