Cat Vaccines

For cats, core vaccines are the basic distemper shot (FVRCP). Some authorities consider the rabies vaccine to be a core vaccine, but due to the fact that many cats that we see almost never go outside, we often do not give it. However, if you consider the consequences of rabies exposure (which can certainly happen indoors) and the legal consequences of owning a biting animal (what happens to the animal generally is dependent on its vaccine status), it is not hard to see why this vaccine is important. Additional vaccines for cats include feline leukemia virus (FeLV).
