As your trusted Columbus veterinarians, our team at Hamilton Road Animal Hospital strives to provide the surrounding areas of Columbus, Whitehall, Bexley, Reynoldsburg, Gahanna, Pickerington, and Groveport with all the services needed to keep pets healthy and safe. One of the many services our veterinarians are proud to offer is that of vaccinations. We currently offer vaccines for kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs.
Keeping your cat up-to-date on all necessary vaccinations is extremely important in keeping your cat healthy. Furthermore, many boarding facilities and pet day care facilities will require your cat to be up-to-date on all vaccines in order to provide you with their services.
Feline vaccinations work by introducing a very small amount of the modified virus, disease, or illness (known as an antigen) into your pet's body. The purpose of this is to allow your pet to build up antibodies against that particular disease or illness. This way, if they are exposed to it in the future, their bodies will be able to fight that disease or virus off without contracting it.
Core vaccinations for cats are those that are highly recommended (and in some cases, required) for your cat. These include:
Non-core vaccinations are recommended on a case-by-case basis depending on your cat's risk factors. Potential non-core vaccines that your veterinarian could recommend include:
Another important thing to consider and talk to our Columbus veterinarians about is whether or not your cat needs protection against fleas, ticks, and other parasites. In general, this is highly recommended for cats that spend any amount of time outdoors, as the risk is very high in outdoor pets. Furthermore, even if your cat is a strictly indoor pet, additional protection against fleas, ticks, and parasites may be recommended by our veterinarians if you have a dog or other pet which goes in and out of the house.
Ultimately, the best way to determine how to best protect your cat is to have a conversation with our veterinarians about your pet’s risks factors and which parasites it may be exposed to.
If your cat is in need of updated vaccinations or if you're not sure, please schedule an appointment with our Columbus veterinarians at Hamilton Road Animal Hospital today. At your appointment, be sure to bring any veterinary records you have for your cat.
