FELINE VACCINE SCHEDULE


The first three-in-one combination DISTEMPER vaccine, (Rhinotracheitis-Calici- Panleukopenia virus) is normally given as soon as the kitten is weaned, which occurs at approximately 8-weeks. The kitten then needs to be boostered with the same vaccine every 3-4 weeks until a minimum of 16-weeks of age, which provides protection for one year. Thereafter, this vaccine is boostered every 3 years.
*NOTE: To be sure that your kitten has been properly protected from the above diseases, we recommend that the series not be completed before the age of 16 weeks. Your kitten should be receiving its last distemper combination vaccine at the age of 16 weeks or older to maximize protection.

For ADULT CATS receiving the distemper combination vaccine for the first time, the vaccine is administered and must be boostered one time 3-4 weeks following the initial vaccine. The vaccine offers protection for one year, and thereafter, every 3 years.

The first PUREVAX FELINE RABIES vaccine should be given between 12 and 16 weeks of age, and then repeated annually. According to New York State law, cats must be vaccinated against Rabies, whether they remain exclusively indoors or not. FELINE LEUKEMIA is a vaccine highly recommended for ALL CATS. The initial vaccine is given as early as 9-weeks of age, then, boostered 3-4 weeks later. It is recommended to booster the leukemia vaccine yearly, especially for pets at risk for exposure.

  • "We've been with TVVH for over 25 years. Could not imagine going elsewhere. In addition to their professional expertise is the consistent human element; their very real kindness and caring. Office staff, technicians and doctors all are exceptional."

  • "I recently moved to the area and adopted a rescue, so both of us were strangers. Dr. DeVerna was highly recommended by a dear friend who used the group. We were seen by Dr. Jeri-Ann DiPaola, a warm, knowledgeable professional--very accessible--I had tons of questions, all answered. The entire atmosphere was very friendly and clearly a place where pets and their owners can be comfortable. The office staff and assistants were terrific and made us feel very welcome. Thanks to all."

  • "The staff and doctors are amazing. The older my Shih Tzu gets the more difficult and snappy he has become. Your doctors and staff are kind, gentle, and professional. You don't make me feel like I have a bad dog or I raised him wrong. I feel you care not just for me dog but for me (who can be a bit neurotic about my dog). Your tech staff and doctors...even the front desk staff are the best!!"

  • "I not only use Three Village Veterinary for my personal animals, but frequently recommend them to my grooming customers as well. I trust them explicitly and value their professionalism, but above all their compassion... all the doctors there are great & the fact that they put up with my MANY emergencies (& my neurosis) makes them my fav. Love you guys <3"
