To protect your cat from contagious diseases, keep their cat vaccinations up-to-date. This is important even if your cat is kept mostly indoors. Many contagious diseases are airborne and your cat could easily be exposed through an open window. There is also always a risk that your cat could accidentally slip out the door.
Recommended Schedule for Cat Vaccinations:
- Every year – Purevax Rabies vaccine, feline Leukemia vaccine
- Every 3 years – feline distemper vaccine, rhinotracheitis vaccine
What to bring when pet boarding:
- We recommend that you bring your pet’s normal food with them. A sudden food change can cause an upset stomach and unnecessary stress to the GI system. If you do forget to bring food, we feed Hill’s Science Diet.
- Your pet’s most current vaccination history.
