Vaccinating Kittens: Protecting Our Fur-babies
30 April 2024

When it comes to our adorable kittens, their health and well-being are top priorities. That's why the ideal age for their vaccinations is crucial - 8, 12, and 16 weeks old!


At 8 weeks, our furballs get their first set of vaccines, defending them against serious diseases like Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia (FVRCP). At 12 weeks, we reinforce that protection, and again at 16 weeks.


A little post-vaccine downtime is normal. You might notice your kitten feeling a bit tired, having a reduced appetite, or a tiny bit of swelling or tenderness at the injection site. These are good signs, though, showing that their immune systems are gearing up to protect them!


How do vaccines work, you ask?

They introduce a safe form of the disease into your kitten's body, training their immune system to recognize and fight it. So, if they ever encounter the real deal, their body will be ready to tackle it head-on!


Remember, it's essential to consult with your vet to tailor a vaccination plan to your kitten's unique needs and the local disease risks.


Let's keep our kittens healthy, happy, and ready for a lifetime of cuddles!
