Vaccines for Kittens & Cats

A simple method to reduce fatal diseases for your feline companion.

Our hospital uses a current vaccine protocol aimed at reducing the frequency of vaccines administered while protecting your pet against contagious diseases. There is a range of diseases that pets are susceptible to, especially during their first few weeks of life. Our veterinary team will work with you to create an individualized vaccination plan for them.

When should my kitten have their first vaccines?

Between 6 to 8 weeks, your pet should have their first round of vaccines. Ensuring your pet gets these first vaccines is crucial because they can start to build immunity against some diseases that are fatal for unvaccinated pets. It's important to closely follow the vaccine schedule so your pet can be fully protected. We only vaccinate healthy pets, ensuring we review their medical history and perform a physical exam first. Side effects of vaccinations are rare, once administered properly. To learn more about vaccinating your kitten, please contact us at 416-745-4700.
