Having your cat vaccinated is one of the most crucial parts of being a responsible pet parent.

Protect Your Cat with Vaccines

Modern vaccines are safe, and they are highly effective at preventing potentially deadly diseases like Rabies. At The Cat Clinic, we perform cat vaccinations in Columbia and are here to help you determine which shots your cat needs. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach, we will take the time to get to know your cat and learn about their lifestyle. In doing so, we can determine what diseases your cat is most likely to encounter and make appropriate vaccine recommendations. For cat vaccinations in Columbia, Forest Acres, Shandon, and the nearby communities, there is simply no better choice than our skilled and loving team!

Vaccinations for Cats

Pet vaccines are divided into two broad categories: Core and non-core. Core vaccines are recommended for nearly all cats and protect against common illnesses. Non-core vaccines, on the other hand, are only required by certain cats. Whether your cat goes outside or stays outside plays a vital role in determining their vaccine needs.

For cats, core vaccines include:

  • Rabies (required by law)
  • Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis
  • Calicivirus
  • Panleukopenia

The feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia vaccines are typically administered using the combination FVRCP vaccine. At The Cat Clinic, we use an intranasal vaccine rather than a shot. With this vaccine, a drop is administered in each nostril rather than being injected into your cat’s body using a syringe.

Non-core vaccines for cats include:

  • Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLv)
